It's a left-hinge... if it were a right hinge, I'd be dragging Robert to go pick this up and use as our garage fridge. Looks to be in decent shape, the price is certainly right (if it works, but I would imagine it does).

Beautiful interior, and left-hand (very hard to come by).

VERY hard to come by!

This is the 1953 electric latch model!

I doubt Robert would have to be dragged

I sure hope a scrapper hasn't procured it already.  This is a fridge that's well worth rescuing.

I shot the seller an email. I agree, too nice to see scrapped (though what am I going to do with it? LOL). -Cory

Good luck, that is a neat fridge! That pushbutton door latch is quite the short-lived fridge feature, they must have only made them ever so briefly after the live advertising problem when it wasn't plugged in! I hope that you are able to save and enjoy it!

Left-Hand Refrigerator Doors

Are not that uncommon, in my experience nearly half of all refrigerators are either left hand or should be, since the early 50s when virtually all refs were offered in left hand versions they have been very popular.

And now that all refs are reversible we find when making deliveries of new refs that we easily reverse 1/2 of them.

"...well normally it's completely automatic..." LOL! good clip, thanks for the link, Ralph.

That is a nice looking refrigerator from the photos.

Cory, what to do with it.... reserved for refreshments, pre-made snacks and appetizers for the day or week, or strictly for leftovers and maybe assorted goodies for making health drinks? Of course, I have NO idea what you already own and use. ;-)

Well, I never did hear back from the seller, so I fear the scrappers may have already struck. Too bad. -Cory
