Yowza, reader and epic retro researcher Jason — who constantly sends us tips about vintage goodies coming up for sale — has done it again, uncovering yet another amazing vintage find. This time it is a New Old Stock Westinghouse range for sale by ebay seller pedro4 in Waltham, Mass. The stove, he says, rescued from the basement of a Westinghouse repairman’s home, where it had sat unused for 60 years. The stove is a beauty indeed, shiny, clean and oozing retro charm — and it also has a few unique functional features — like the built-in fryer basket that sits directly in the stovetop. Neato!

Up for auction is this once in a lifetime find. An unused Westinghouse DD-74 Electric stove from the 40’s or 50’s. This unique find came from a Westinghouse distributer/repair man and has been stored in a dry basement for over 60 years. It is unused and most likely never even plugged in. Look at all the pictures to see what a beautiful 60 year old electric stove this is. As stated it is unused, and is in tremendous shape. Look at the picture from the inside of the oven. It shines like the day it was manufactured. This may be the only one of it’s kind in this shape. All draws are perfect, they are clean and shiny. The front, top and sides have a beautiful enamel shine. It also has a very unique deep frying basket and burner with cover. It is very cool. There are a couple of minor blemishes, but they are minor and can be touched up. These blemishes are on one side of the stove where there are 2 small places where the enamel came off. A little enamel paint and it will resolve the problem. Also there are couple of small scuff marks but not dings or dents. The only other thing is the chrome needs to be polished. As stated this is probably the only unused stove of its type in existence unless it is in a Westinghouse Museum. It weights probably 225 lbs and measures approx. 40″ by 27″ by 44 inches tall.
This stove seems like a museum worthy piece indeed — though it would be a dream to have in someone’s vintage kitchen. Mind you: Be sure to have a properly licensed professional check out your vintage appliances — even if they are New Old Stock. Mega thanks to Jason for yet another great tip and to Ebay seller pedro4 for allowing us to feature the photos of this rare New Old Stock Westinghouse stove.
