    Does anyone know how much a 1954 M-85 Refrigerator weighs? Thank you!

    I agree regarding price. If it was pristine, or maybe restored, I could do that.

    Otherwise, too far from me either way. Probably for the best.

    Thanks for sharing the find.

    Randall,

    On one hand, thanks for sharing. Fine looking fridge, hope one of us gets it.

    OTOH, why do all these IH fridge's and freezers have to be off in BFE? And Randall, you're down here (somewhat) close , just east of me in Louisiana, down off the south coast, unless some one is feeding these to you, I'm kind of in awe you're turning these up on the opposite side of the country.

    Ha!
    It's the power of the internet.
    Nothing good is for sale around here so I have to expand my radius.

    That is some pretty significant radius expansion !

    IH all,

    A couple years ago I found an IH fridge in the ditch. I salvaged the interior freezer door and two shelves. They are available to you at no cost -- other than shipping. The outside and inside of the freezer door are separated, so if you only need the metal part or the plastic insert I'd be happy to send you that part and save the other for someone else's project. If you need everything, then, of course, I'll send you everything! I would be happy to take measurements or provide additional photos. Please PM me if you are interested.

    Best Regards,
    Kyle T.

    Moderator: I've posted in this forum first, but I'll move it to the classifieds if no one on the fridge watch list needs it.

    Items have found a new home! I'll leave the images here for future reference.

    Looking for feedback and comments on this deep freeze:

    https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/atq/d/haltom-city-1951-international/7148128895.html

    Wayback Machine link - for when the above one disappears in a week.

    https://web.archive.org/web/2020062...altom-city-1951-international/7148128895.html

    IH kitchen appliances don't frequently appear in my area, and this one just popped up, roughly 30 miles from my house.

    They want a lot of money for it - $500 USD - and maybe that dollar amount would be OK if it were in pristine condition, but from the pics included, I don't feel like it is anywhere close to pristine. To make matters worse, it appears that the owner has recently broken it, so it is no longer functional.

    I have no refrigeration repair skills, and I don't know anyone who does. Right now, my gut instinct on this is its worth somewhere between "I'll haul it off for free" and maybe up to $100. Honestly, I'm somewhat feeling that because the seller is asking such an overprice amount, I'm probably dodging a bullet here.

    Am I way off base? Is someone else seeing something I'm not that would value this broken unit @ $500, or even somewhere close?

    These pics are for my post (above). The wayback machine does a great job of saving text. Image saves are iffy.

    Good storage. Id offer to remove it an flip him a $100 bill. But take your own helpers. Them damn things are heavy. I have 1 for parts. You may spend up to a few 100 fixing it.

    Good Luck. Please share after you've see it, which ever way the deal goes.

    I've waited a long time for an IH kitchen appliance. Based on feedback (or lack there of), I will probably wait a bit longer for something functional with a bit more realistic price.
