I would think.

I'd go with mid '60s. 


Neighbors had a '49 Westinghouse that was identical to ours, and replaced it with a new frost free top mount Norge that looked very similar, but the handles had the more common angular look.  The fan at the back of the freezer section would cut out whenever the freezer door was opened.


Considering it's all there, $100 isn't too terrible.  That fridge will likely still be running after we're all dead and gone.

Yes! chrome handles were

a 60's design flair. By 1972, most had wood grain vinyl inserts or applique's on them.
The other day, I spotted Marie Barone's (Everybody Loves Raymond) avocado late 60's Kenmore stove in a garage on our street.
I was told, don't even think about it. Did I say I wanted it? Did I have to say it? It's an even more deluxe model than the Barone's too.
The people there are used car dealers. I wonder of they know what they have.
I knew the previous owner of the home. It was not in her kitchen.

If it says Borg Warner on it, its definitely 60s, Fedders bought out Norge sometime around 70.
