Last time I saw one of these on CL it was gone in a day. I suspect by the time most of you see this, the posting will have been deleted. Just went live Friday nite circa 9pm. If it's as good as photos indicate, it's already sold.... :/

I checked some OLD AW topics on this to be sure...because I couldn't believe any white paint job from '48 could look that good today. It sure is CHEAP! I am so tempted to get on the phone and call about it before I leave today.....I just KNOW someone's gonna snatch it up quick....

All porcelain = HEAVY.  But still, an amazing fridge.  Hopefully this is saved.  I'm not near my Frigidaire Fridge book to double check, but I think this may be a '46 or a '47.

I believe you're right, Ben, mid 40's. Nice 'fridge!

Looks like a classier version of the DI-7 in my basement. I agree it's porcelain, if finish is original as stated - mine (Dulux enamel) doesn't look near as good.

Yours is a little later, like '48 or '49, and it's a Loewy design.
