I'm not sure what the seller means by "I just had it reconditioned." A light cleaning off and straightening the broiler up would make for much nicer photos...but whata ya want for $75.00?

Only $75?

Could that be right?  Isn't it worth a lot more than that?

Yes it could be, to the right person, but maybe this is someone remodeling the house and wants to try selling it, rather than scrap it?   You never know.

It all depends.

Right now with shipping costs very dear large and even smaller vintage appliances such as dishwashers or washing machines cost a bundle to shift. Unless there is a vast local market for such things the value is very low. Most likely as Kevin suggested the seller is just charging a nominal amount in the hopes the beast of a range will go to a good home rather than the scrappers.

Keep in mind that sort of range would likely require careful disassembly, crating and what not to ship safely. All of which would add to the cost. Suppose if it were going just cross town or around the block you could take it in main sections on the back of a pick-up, but otherwise be prepared to pay.

If you look at fleaPay lately vintage appliances aren't shifting like they used to; many are relisted over and over with no takers. Since eBay has rolled out various free listing schemes it costs sellers nothing to keep the things up.

Does it have a built-in exhaust fan also? It gives that appearance.

It's been advertised a few times before and keeps going down in price. If it gets much lower he could sell it for scrap...a terrible shame for sure. I think it would make a nice project for someone who would take it apart and take their time with it. You'd have something very nice when you finished.

No one bought this very nice Maytag either. It's more money but would make a gourmet statement in the right kitchen. $350 wouldn't buy you much in a new range.

Sadly aside from us here and other select groups the vintage appliance heyday maybe cooling. Unless things are local it just is becoming very expensive to shift these all metal beasts often within a state much less several away.

Think many could swing the cost of this range per se, it is just the logistics and whatever that scare them off.

I've never seen a gas range with control knobs in the back, but now I have!! Lolll The way they are positioned on the dash there is no way to get burned it appears. Is that one of those adjustable dash lights??!

I know what you mean. I would like to get my O'Keefe totally restored and there's a restoration business in Clayton, Georgia not that far from here. They quoted me a price that I can live with, but the problem is getting it over there.

Let's put it this way

Have been pricing shifting a dishwasher from upstate NY/Conn to us; lowest bids *start* at $300.

Beginning to think our members with trucks/vehicles of their own have the right idea. Roll on your own power and do the shifting yourself.
