Great Find!

I have seen a similar model with the wide keyboard buttons in a red porcelain cabinet, but only in red, offered as some sort of promotional model for GE dealers but with all of these features and maybe one offset oven rack. A neighbor had one. I can't remember if it had the high wattage, high rise surface units. Given its age, it is in amazingly good condition--there don't even seem to be scratches on the chrome oven door liner. Someone sure took good care of this range. There is no sane reason why someone would be getting rid of it. That would cook perfectly into the middle of the coming apocalypse. That is the sort of stove that is worth far more than the asking price, unlike so much mid century stuff offered up for hundreds of dollars. Of course, it is white.

Tom,

The red version to which you refer was a 1961 only offering, and it did have the piano keyboard switches, and a Sensi-Temp unit.  I had one of the red ones when I moved to Mobile, purchased in Pensacola.  I spent a TON of time cleaning up years of grease and grime only to be rewarded by a serious short one evening that plunged the entire house into darkness.  I sold that one.

 

Based on the fact that the one listed has an Automatic burner, it has to be pre-1961, and with the charcoal on the backsplasher and the rotary switch style, I'm guessing this is a 1959 model.

 

Not a bad find for $10.
