Below are samples of various styles and makes of refrigerators that were built between the 1920’s and 1950’s. These are a sample of the models and makes that we have for sale, but does not display our complete inventory. We’re constantly getting in more items, so if you’re looking for something specific, let us and know and we’ll check our storage stock to see if we have one. If not, we receive countless emails from folks all over the country, everyday, people who have taken possession of an appliance and don’t know what to do with it. Before sending it to scrap metal, then send us pictures to see if we’re interested in buying or if we have an interested buyer.

Full Restoration Included In Pricing

Our Unrestored Antique Refrigerators are not for sale “AS IS”. Once you purchase an Unrestored Antique Refrigerator from our unrestored inventory we restore it to your specs. Therefore, All Prices Include Full Restoration. Items marked “New” are new to our inventory only and have not yet been restored.

Early Philco refrigerators had a metal tag with the model number either on the back side of the refrigerator or down by the compressor, visible if you remove the bottom tip-out storage drawer. Post war 1946 to early 1950's was usually on the back of the refrigerator.

About Our Unrestored Antique Refrigerators

Philco Refrigerator 1968

  1. This number can be multiplied by the age of the refrigerator to determine its worth based on how long it has been used. Refrigerator Model and Desirability Some claim that simply working out the age of the refrigerator does not do enough to accurately work out its value.
  2. Starting in 1937, Philco changed their numbering scheme to include the last two digits of the model’s production year. So, the “new” models for the 1937 model year were 37-10, 37-610, 37-89 and so forth. Philco kept this scheme up to the end of radio and television production.

Our refrigerator inventory is a selection of various manufacturers and styles that covers a wide range of decades. Many are absolute works of art, as well as those that offer really cool features and practical functions. During our restoration process, we are modifying all original door closures and latch mechanisms so that the finished restored appliance meets USCPSC safety codes according to the Refrigerator Safety Act (Codified at 15 U.S.C. 1211-1214, under public law 84-930, 70 Stat. 953, August 2, 1956). As every manufacturer produced different door closure designs and even those varied from year to year and decade to decade, we take each refrigerator restoration on an individual basis to determine the most effective and safe method of modification for that particular refrigerator.

In most all post-WWII production models, we will be modifying from a closed latch mechanism to a magnetically sealed door that works with a custom made magnetic door gasket, or by fitting the cabinet to work with custom fitted “super magnets” around the doors perimeter. For models built before WWII, many of which used more of an “ice-box” style, exterior mounted latch, these units can be fitted with a push button, glow in the dark release button on the inside of the cabinet that pushes through to trip the exterior mounted handle. At Antique Appliances, we are dedicated to the safety of all our customers and their families, so we are taking this step in our restoration process to insure your restored vintage refrigerator is safe and functional for many years to come.
