Any 'Poolers out there can tell me which model and year this is?

 

I've wanted a Whirlpool top loader since I drank the St. Joseph Kool-Aid  and I think this may be the one. I like those spray arms and unless I'm wrong, this looks to be one of the few top loader portables out there with an insulated tank.

Late 60s early 1970s at the latest.  Doesn't Paul have one?

SVP 80 (or so)

This is a 1968-70 model and yes it does have the insulated tank. Robert, Michael, and I all have one (similar models). Mike illustrated his in a couple of months ago in an Imperial thread.

These do have an inner tank, but it's not insulated in the traditional sense. It has some cardboard inserts around the tub to keep the outer wrapper from bowing in an out. The air space between the tank & the wrapper acted as a sort of insulation.

It is a very powerful dishwasher that cleans very well; this model features the rare Delco Turbo pump. Hope someone can save it.

if I had a Star Trek transporter, I'd pull that out of the Portland area so fast. I love these Whirlpools, and the seldom(at least in my searches) show up.

Hope it gets a good home.

I'm going for it but I haven't heard back from the seller yet.

Bob, I had a slightly fancier Inglis version but that's now part of the Musuem in Beltsville....
