Why would anybody take that kitchen apart in the first place?

Agreed; that kitchen is awesome!  Or was, I guess.

ha! I love the ad:

"...Needs cleaning, reassembly and a new wiring harness. ..."

Are you sure that's all? What about those screws your dog swallowed? lol!

What kind of RETARD would tear up a fine kitchen as that-far better than the CRAP ones today.Don't understand people-they buy a home with a kitchen in perfect shape-rip it out and replace those nice vintage QUALITY machines with todays tin crap and the cabinets today-particle board and plastic.Some people should NOT buy or own homes!!!!
Disassembled machines-new Trend??Appliance kits?Least they have been taken apart for the convenience of the scrap guys.I would think a GOOD contactor can remove an appliance without taken it down to peices.SAWZALL HACKS!!!!"Can't get it out--so SAWZALL IT!!"Don't mean to use the name of Milwaukees fine tool in vain.Its gotten to the point where folks call any recip saw a "Sawzall"

The only reason I could see for disassembly of the Westinghouse oven is if the door and front trim need to be removed to access the screws holding it to the cabinet.

The knotty pine cabinets are interesting, though not my style. I've seen knotty alder and knotty maple cabinets at stores in recent years. They would look good in my sister's house.

I WOULD LOVE THE COUNTER TOPS & CABINETS......

I've been chasing several houses on the Multiple Listing Sites
here, to keep after the Selling agent, and letting them know
that I want the Kitchen Cabinets, &/or Countertops, if I see
a Really Nice Un-Molested Kitchen, like this ONE, that you know
someone, of no Discerning Taste, will tear apart.

I've got a few houses on the hook, waiting for the buyers
to close. Hopefully one will contact me, as they said they
would, and I'll go get the Cabinets &/or Countertops.

That's the same technique that got me a complete turquoise
6 piece set of Appliances/Sink from an all original 1963 Ranch.

Persistence pays off. Got to get to these people before they
get to the wrecking ball.

What a shame, for this kitchen, on All Counts.
