    Oh I'm so sorry - that should have gone on the first window... The Gs were made in Germany and the As were made in America as far as I know.

    With feature differences too.
    401G - treadle ready - 401A not.
    Are there others Miriam besides color?

    The maps on the doors are different. Lots of cosmetic differences.
    Check out the stitch length regulator differences.

    The German machines are badged on the lever plate.
    The bobbin winds at the top.
    there are treadle belt channels in the back and square knock outs with space for them to go in the front - the hand wheel is deeper.
    Extra thread guides
    Different shape to the top & doors - a bit different shape to the front nose door
    lots of little differences.

    The 401G was a trash day rescue a few years ago - I had to learn the hard way not to use liquid wrench, anything you spray in... WD40, 3in1 oil - it was dirty, rusty in places and locked up tight - I never really dreamed it would sew or was so special. I worked on that one for two years before I got everything working right. It still could use some more clean up. The motor is cracked. Speaking of motor and electric. The G models take the same foot control & cord as the Singer Featherweight - one plug two cords. The 401A takes two cords with two plugs.
