1952 GE Refrigerator restoration

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I was looking for an old frig to store meat in while brining and came across a 1952 model GE that still worked. After researching the serial # I found out that these are worth quite a bit of money when restored.

 

So guess what.? My free little refig is now undergoing restoration along with a snazzy patel green paint job.

 

I'll post some pictures soon..,

 

PS: I'm still gonna use it for the meat anyway hahaha (and beer)

Thanks, I was lucky find.

I traded the guy 1 lb of homemade pastrami (Bill Als recipe, thanks), and a bottle of Canadian Mist.

This is the truth. !

Lets hope I get a few years of use out of it.  I might have a total of $75 in it. The sausage and brining bags now have a new home.

I've been thinking of getting a fridge like this for awhile, and I found one for $40 this morning so I went and bought it. It's not old enough to be cool though! Just old and functional. Woohoo more room for curing meat!
