In 1969 Dodge made a car called a Swinger.Back then I remember thinking that is was the coolest car ever.
This Swinger is a 66, sometimes easy to mistake for a 201. The bobbin case retainer extending off to the right is the give away clue. As is the white tip on the stitch length lever almost hidden on the front of the machine.
Anybody seen Rain's blog? He has info on how to ID a bad CL ad photo machine: http://vssmb.blogspot.com/search/label/find%20%27em
this one DID come from the bottom of a river...
and the worst part is I WANT TO BUY it... (I am not, but I want to....)
i have to say that what bothered me the most is the idea that in order for it to look like that it had to be in a fairly anaerobic state... either buried in REALLY dense silt, or in a river with a VERY low oxygen levels...
if the price was more like 50-75 I would take up the challenge of restoring that baby...
here is a beautiful two tone... just under $40 right now.
