It even has an ice maker!  That's the first one I've seen.


A true survivor.  I hope someone here is interested in giving it a loving home.  I know I'd be all over it if it were near me.

....You seriously do not want to move that unit - it weighs much more than you would expect for the size.

Ben swestoyz just moved one from his basement. He can tell you it's no job for the faint of heart.

All of the Straight-Line Design Combinations were amazingly heavy.

Ice Maker:

That is an early Auto-Fill unit; the name was later changed to Ice 'n Easy.

It's not exactly an icemaker in the sense we think of one today. The tray was filled automatically, but you had to dump the tray by picking up the right side of the tray and flipping it over to the left, so that the ice ended up in the bin on the left.

So- more semi-automatic than automatic. It was a great device in its day, though.

I guess I had it easy. When I moved mine, I lowered it from the truck, put it on a hand truck and took it home. By myself.
