All I can say is...

I scored a fabulous deal on mine, then. Less than 1/10th of this cyclamatic price got me a '63 Custom Imperial Frigidaire. TOL bottom freezer in turquoise. Working and nice.

It's pretty, but not $2,000 pretty. If they must sell, I hope they are ready to deal in a more realistic $200-$500 price range!

Ad says : "Look! Rare"

Spelled backwards is " KOOL ERAR "

Unlike the blue Frigidaire that did sold on eBay for $2K, I don't think this has the same appeal for even $1000.

Allen - is your Cyclamatic faded in paint in a couple areas where no amount of gentle waxing/rubbing out will change it? Not sure if I'm seeing faded paint on the doors, but overall, I love your fridge.

Mine's not a cyclamatic...but no--there's no paint fade. What you see on the pic is dirty sticky residue from where the guy I bought it from had put thick duct tape on it to keep the doors closed (stupid...doors work fine). It is actually in quite fine shape--I did a little polishing on it, but not much. There was no real oxidation or dryness anywhere. It feels nice and satiny all over.

If he drops into the $250-400 range. Maybe.

Ok, sorry I thought you called it a cyclamatic, but that's another fridge...forget you have a corral full of surprises.

If you don't end up sleeping outside in a tent, eventually. ?
You said "into", so to borrow H. Hermit's song:

Woke up this mornin' feelin' fine
There's somethin' special on my mind
Last night I found a new 'pliance in the neighborhood, whoa yeah
Somethin' tells me I'm into something good
