I would hate to see  anything this cool (heh heh) going to the dump. Can't use it myself though.

If anybody really wants it I could probably pick it up and hold it.  It about a three hour one way drive from me.

Just like the one we had in our kitchen up until about 1970. No idea where it went.

funny storey - about 20 + years ago I was shopping with an old girlfriend in Niagara On The Lake , there was a store with a whole selection of fridge magnets (I had no idea they were on a fridge door) so I see this really cool one that says GM Frigidaire so figuring I'd buy it I was trying to remove it, other magnets were actually falling but this one wouldn't come off ! the store owner let me know the red piece of metal was a fridge door ! and the emblem belonged to it - he wouldn't sell.

Had one of these cool old fridges until about 8 years ago when we moved. Sad to say it was recycled into a Kia.

You know what I just did? Just phoned the guy and told him I was coming to get it. I guess he said he's had about 40 calls but no committment yet. I just can't pass it up especially with the potential for sprucing it up.

Am I crazy? Not sure.

 I really thought you were a lot closer to the fridge than 3 hours...

time will fly when you can listen to your 8 tracks on the way up and back.

If that fridge was here around here I would have snapped it up for that price.

I can see you doing a nice match of the fridge to your 66 GP1966 Grande Parisienne.jpg

You're buttering me up nicely I must say. (especially with that picture) Ya know I could just keep it for you and you can come a get it one of these days maybe when you come up for my Lac la Biche Garages tour and midnight drive in allnighter on August 2nd! We could even listen to some quad eight tracks!

 Who's buttering up who now...biggrin

I think your Lac la Biche Garage tour sounds like a lot of fun...and I am going to definitely try to make it.

As for the fridge, I think the 66 GP colour would be awesome, with some matching trim would make it a great garage addition.

I can already visualize it.

I would love to have it if you decide not to refurbish it....but if I match my 63 Parisienne........it will look like a.......white fridge biggrin or match the interior and make it black.

Still keeping an eye out for more 8 tracks...going to Record land one of these days to check what they have.

Thanks for the offer Ken.

Just let me kow if you want it and its yours (If I get there before the other 40 guys that called) i still owe ya.

As for Recordland about 2 years ago i spent about 2 hours carefully going though the tottering piles of eight track boxes and didn't find a single quad.  I wonder if he got affected by the flood this summer?

Isn't PEI mostly Scottish (if you get my drift?) so I figure they'd all still be in kitchens being used.

 Yes, Scottish and Irish. Being used for "drinks" as the Scottish and Irish here are known for.

I think that might be the plan for this one as well.  You mean this kind of thing by Drinks I assume.

Here's a home movie of me enjoying my hobby:

Art Deco 1938 General Motors Frigidaire refrigerator

   
View larger image
   
   
Date Listed12-Dec-13
Price$1,000.00
AddressLondon, ON N6E 1L2, Canada 
View map
   
Antique refrigerator, made by General Motors.

This attractive art deco styling refrigerator is a very solid, original
condition, 75 year old antique. It's in great working and decent looking
condition for being 75 years old! They just don't make them like they used
to. Refrigeration unit works fine. Temperature setting inside is at about
the mid-way setting and it maintains just above 0-degrees Celcius, which
is right where your temperature is supposed to be, perfect! These are
simple in design and very rugged. If an engineer designed something this
bulletproof today, they would probably get fired!

How many ANYTHING's do you know of that continue to work great 70
years past their (Frigidaire's in 1938) 5 year warranty, besides good old
things the way they used to be made with pride? I think we all know
nowadays, as consumers, we're obviously expected and required to have
to purchase more than one of each needed (and reasonably priced)
appliance in our lifetimes. Facts I do not appreciate. I do appreciate items
like this good old fridge very much though, still doing it's job, and with unique
style and character, and I actually would rather not be trying to sell it at all,
but I need some other things more right now than I need it. My loss, your gain.
These, made to look like new again, sell for upwards of three grand.

A General Motors fan would probably really get a kick out of owning this!

Exterior dimensions are 46" high x 24" wide x 24" deep.
Interior capacity is 4.12 cubic feet.

With a bit of clean-up and/or inexpensive refinish, it would be excellent
for interior design purposes, with it's cool art deco design, interesting
history, a great conversation piece, or even just in the rec room, garage,
or "man-cave", and will keep things nice and cold inside as well.

$1000.00 or best offer. Pre-1985 vehicle trades possibly considered.
