When was the last year that Philco made "flapper-style" washers? Also, does anyone have Philco production figures to get an idea on the rarity of these machines? Glenn told me that a few Philcos were sold in Texas--can't believe it! That would be great if one turned up!

Well, I don't remember them much after around 1966 or so. I am sure they were well marketed as they were products of the Ford Motor Company, so I would think they sold all over this country. BUT, I do think they sold in limited numbers wherever they were marketed--- for whatever reason, they were just not as popular as Kenmore, Maytag and Frigidaire, etc.

They were made just into the early 70's, I'm not sure of the exact date.
