We've had this gem for over 20 years and is our "daily driver" still in use. It was purchased from an estate in excellent condition and had seen little service. Many holiday dinners for family gatherings were prepared over the years with excellent reviews! It is currently operated with natural gas. We had the thermostat professionally rebuilt for the oven by Repco a few years ago. Aside from that, we've simply used it as it was intended to be.
It has been brought to our attention that in order to pass codes in several locales, a safety valve will need to be installed. We've always used the stick lighter with zero issues but this needs to be taken into consideration. We have a complete set of 4 burners, stove top and oven grates, and knobs included as spares.
This stove is 100% Original! There are a few pencil eraser sized chips in the porcelain, but cosmetically it is a stunning survivor that is mechanically and structurally sound and Clean! The ceramic tile riser is included if desired. It raised the unit about 4" and was an ergonomic improvement.
Shipping / Pick up will be the responsibility of the buyer. Great access to it and 2 sturdy men can move and load it on a pick up.
My wife and I are hoping this will live on for many more years and be appreciated as we have - it is a Beautiful piece of American manufacturing history.
Granted, you can find stoves for less but I can't stress enough the Fine condition of this unit. We will entertain reasonable offers.
