This awesome Crystal icebox made in Fremont, Nebraska came out of a cabin up near Pine in Jefferson County. There is no electrical cord - you realy do need to put a block of ice in it. So if you are living off the grid or want to use it out on the patio or want to convert it to a shiny bar valued at $1000 (one for sale on 1st dibs website - all the rage) then this is the refrigerator for you.
It is galvanized metal with curved sides, original hardware, 2 casters attached & 2 need to be reattached with screws. This has seen some rough treatment. I think the guys rolled it around when they found out they were out of beer. Both curved ends are dented (see pics). If you are good at pulling out dents (auto body typo expertise)
then you should have it looking good in no time. You could also encase it in a wood cabinet. However, if you like the well used, shabby look then you'll want to leave as is.
3 wooden shelves on right side for storing your beer and maybe some food; ice tray and drain pan on left. Drain does work just fine.
