So you don't like pink , but a stove like this doesn't show up often in my searches, anyways. Nice condition, one family owned since purchased, lightly used...what's not to like?

What an unusual look - that dark grey upper panel on the doors reminds me of that black-glass look from the 80s.  It's P7 larger oven, too.  Very interesting....

you are talking a little bit of my thought here - I've never seen a stove like this. The dark panels...are those oven windows? What the heck are they plastered on top of the doors for? Not to sound like I know how to design stoves, but I agree - unusual!

I have a sneaky suspicion these were added on at a later date.  Those oven handles just don't quite match the drawer handles.   The stove looks mid-60s and I don't believe GE had a P7 oven with a window then.  I'm inclined to write the seller to find out the model number!!

I've seen these panels on ranges like this before; the main one that comes to mind was Coppertone.  I don't know the composition of the panels, but apparently they were simply intended to dress up the range - especially ranges with the P7 oven and therefore without a window in the main oven door.


I think this is 1964 model.  It shows up in the 1964 Sweets catalog, without the decorative panels and without the P7 feature as model J485Y and was only available in white and Coppertone.  My guess is this pink one was a late entry in the 1964 model lineup.

Well, I'll be!  I never thought GE offered these decorative panels in those years!

Here are a couple of ads (taken from ebay listings) illustrating the pink (1964) range (yellow in the ad) and the 1965 version, with reduced panel/trim (coppertone in the ad).

Very nice, and rare to see Petal Pink on a P*7. I think the trim was to help keep the handle on the self-clean side cooler in cleaning mode.

This Was The First GE 40" Range With A P-7 Oven

And it was the first 40 " range ever made with a Self-Cleaning oven


We have this range in Copper-Tone in our museum, [ I Think ] that the tempered glass panels added some insulating effect to the top of the doors as well as a great look, it really breaks up the pink and makes for a great looking range, I hope someone grabs this at this good price.

This was

In my estimation the pinnacle of General Electric quality and styling, in these years they were as good as and better than most anything on the market.

I love these stoves but as a cook I never liked the 4 burners clustered on the LH (or RH)side which was a throwback to the days of wood/coal-fired farm stoves where the firebox was on one side or the other. Friends of mine have an odd Hotpoint 1963 40" stove with 2 burners on each side, which they didn't do again. GE and Hotpoint offered a 40" cooktop in the late '60's with this configuration but they had the generosity to put a grill/griddle on the other side.

One of my absolute favorite models. John L. Gave me one decades ago. It worked flawlessly and cooked up a storm. It was newer,about 1966 model. It had Sensitemp, Rotisserie, and removable see,rear and base panels in the smaller oven on the left you could put in the main oven for P7 self clean cycle and the Sensitemp burner could be set to be a 4", 6", or 8" burner. Either oven could be pre set as well as one of the two outlets on the backslash to come on,cook then shut themselves off all automatically.

There are some models of GE 40" ranges that have the burners on opposite sides, but they were the lower priced ones. Popular with people who did canning.
