1962 Frigidaire Stove and Refrigerator, Turquoise
The stove is a turquoise 1962 Frigidaire Electric Range, Custom Imperial Model
RCI-39-62, and includes the Use and Care instructions. The stove is functional.
fridge is a turquoise 1962 Frigidaire Frost Proof Refrigerator-Freezer, Imperial
Model FPI-13B-62, and includes the Use and Care instructions. The compressor
does not work and the insulation needs replacing. Also, as the freezer
was to be opened by foot, when the pedal stopped working Grandpa

that it has sat for some time, unplugged and closed, and so it smells of
old rubber and plastic. That can be remedied, but both the stove and refrigerator are probably most useful as props or decorations.
Both appliances need some TLC inside and
outside, but the turquoise exterior on each is mostly unmarred. There are a few
stains which I do not want to scrub too vigorously for fear of damaging
