Even though these were made by WCI, this Gibson pair looks well built. Anyone know what vintage these are roughly ?

Probably 1972 to 1975 range.

ETA:  Found a newspaper ad (can't get it any larger) that looks like this model, 1973.

Complete with an "easy-to-remove console and lift-up top"  


I want to see that.  Such a good idea.

Thanks guys.These apparently weren't too durable I take it.

Have yet to see any WCI washers of this vintage floating around that still work.Seen GE/Hotpoint ,Maytag, KM/WP but no WCI made machines.

Our 1984 Kelvinator "looked" beefy but parts started breaking off like door shelf retainers and the wire freezer shelf.Fridge was poorly designed .

If you were careless to keep the butter compartment door open when you closed the door you could easily snap off the butter door. That was our experience with a WCI product.

Whirlpool is looking more like WCI with each passing year. Sad.
