Ok guys. Heres my newest addition to my collection. My second refrigerator. I watched it for about a week in a half on Tucson Craigslist before I came to my wits and called the lady. I am so glad I did. Its a model: HA-92 and the year is 6-22-1951. Its MINT. Very clean and nice. The lady i bought it from said her dad bought it brand new in Benton, Iowa and supposedly he was either a owner, or worked at the IH dealership there. Anyway, it works great and I was going to put it in my shop, but its way too nice so I put in in the garage. Enjoy.

MAN! i guess.i'd put that in my HOUSE!jeff,nice find.:taz::rockon:

Here's another '55.

Came from a diner in mid-town STL who'd had it its whole life. Paid $50.

BTW, it could use a handle, drawer and door shelf trim (see Paul's picts). If anyone's got that stuff shoot me a PM.

I've got the same one except its a deep freeze...Got it for free

Finally loaded some pictures of my 1950 model H-92. Would like to find a drip tray for it. ;)
I think I posted in the wrong thread the first time.:oops:

This one I bought in June 2010 For $50 at a junkyard not knowing if it worked or not... Well it does, and very well.

Don't have a picture at this time, but do have an old IH that I would like to know the real age of. It is a model RHN-12F SN 010481100. I bought it used in 1960 and it has been used in one place or another of my house ever since. Never been repaired because it never needed it. Exterior could use a little TLC, but it runs like a charm and quieter than any of the new ones I have had.

Traded a Kelvinator for this. It's missing a few parts that I'd like to find or make, like the freezer box door, whatever plastic piece is on the back of the defroster tray, a sliding door in the door, the copper rails that hold the eggs in, etc.

You can see there are chunks missing from the plastic trim, and there is rust underneath. Maybe one day I'll fix the rust and find the needed parts. But… I got the Kelvinator for free, and the guy who had this wanted $300, but we traded straight up.

Very cool. Looks like it's only a few years younger than mine. Those strips around the edge of the outside of the door are designed to come off so you could put on one of two or three different color fabrics to "customize" your refrigerator to match your kitchen. I think a lot of people probably got rid of the freezer box door pretty quickly because vintage photos I've seen of that door show that it has "Femineered" in cursive script across it.

I need to take my fridge in to get serviced. It quit getting cold last year, so I think it probably blew a seal. The compressor still runs though. Also, pressing the thermostat button to turn on the defrost element no longer seems to work. Thank god there's an industrial refrigeration company here in town that is willing to work on it.

Thanks. I've been reading threads on fridge restos and found out about being able to put fabric on the doors. I do need to find out what kind of door seal I need since the old one is completely gone. Unforunately I think that most the parts I need are irreplaceable unless I make them. The "diffuse-o-lite" would be the hardest to copy. I'd also like to put a meter on this thing and see just how much power it uses.

Thank you Craigslist.

This last weekend, Mrs JJ and I were able to embark on an adventure. The old shop fridge had finally passed away quietly after many years of faithful beverage service. We had talked about trying to find a suitable replacement (IH of course), and this 1950 model showed up about 2 hrs away in Evansville IN. After several emails between us, I finally spoke to the buyer and a deal was struck.

It turned out that it was the family 'fridge, and had been purchased new by his parents in 1950, and had not been outside of the house since. He talked about how his mom had updated the kitchen sometime in the early 70's, and his dad had painted the 'fridge to match the new decor. His mom had passed away several years ago, and the dad a couple of months ago. The family was in the process of cleaning the old family home out and getting rid of stuff.

It was as promised, plugged in, running, and making ice when we arrived--still in the kitchen. Other than the brown paint, it is in really nice shape. It will require a new door gasket, and we are going to scuff and paint it IH red.

The gentlemen that we got it from was a fleet buyer of trucks, and stated that he had always bought IH's--must have been conditioning from seeing the logo on the door all those years growing up. He watched us drive away...

Just picked this one up from down the street the other night, its not in the greatest shape, but I couldn't leave it for the price I paid.

Cant seem to find any information about it though, wondering about the year among other things.

Here's my new '55.
It just finished the trip from Las Cruces, NM.
It was originally white and it needs door gaskets- it has nothing but clips now.
It seems to work fine, but I had no idea how small they are! I am 6'3"
I also have a '55 Stainless Steel Hotpoint Deluxe that is a beast compared to the IH.

My new "to me" 1950 U-95. Had some funky house paint on it so got it sanded down then rattled on some appliance white. Still need to do the seal but couldn't wait to get beer in there and in the man room!
Had the glass drip tray, but need to find a handle if anyone has a spare....lol.

I'll be picking one up today. Not sure of the model number but the seller states that it is a 1949 model. Says that it works great but could use a new door seal. I've been looking for an IH fridge for a while now. Really happy that I found this one. How many of you have painted their fridge to match your IH truck? Not sure if I should leave it as it is, paint it gloss white, IH red, or paint it to match my Scout.

EDITED: I picked it up yesterday just outside of Portland, OR. Well worth the 4 hours of driving. If you ever have the chance to drive into Portland do a google search for the food trucks. Portland has about 500 food trucks in the city. There are several areas where you can find 30+ different food trucks all on one block. Food from all over the world. I had Moroccan food for lunch yesterday. I usually go for Tai or Vietnamese food. It really is a cool experience and Portland is a very cool, quirky, weird city. Always worth the drive down.

BTW.......I'm really leaning towards painting the fridge IH red. I already have the paint to do some cabinets and my old Gasboy fuel pump.
