    Gotham model 4000

    I picked one of these up today at the thrift store for $10, it looks like new. I wish I new how to post a pic, I only know how to email pics. Does anybody know if this is a 60's machine? It sews good, came in a case with the manual and some feet and bobbins. It is very heavy.

    Posting here is easier than emailing. I'll send you a PM with my email address if you want me to post the pics for you.

    The machine in question:

    I was hoping for something black with fins.
    It's still a neat looking machine though.

    It runs real quiet, of course it needed oil.

    I picked up a Gotham about a year ago for $5. It had nothing with it--looking for manual so I can get it going..it is pink...motor works -still needs some tweeking...

    Thanks Rodney for posting the pic for me. Do you know if this is a high shank machine? None of my quarter inch feet will fit it, they are too short.

    It does look like it is a high shank machine. A real beauty. I like the blue color.
