    Red face Thrilled to pieces...

    Hi from the beautiful state of Georgia. I have bought an Husqvarna-Viking machine today. Yay, celebrating! I'm wondering what year it was made. If anyone can help, I'd sure appreciate it.
    The model is 49E, made in Sweden. I am so excited that I was able to purchase this for only $43.oo!! This is an extremely heavy machine... what was I thinking...!?? I am going to restore the cabinet and the machine itself runs quietly! Yay Yay Yay!

    Hello and welcome from Australia. I have a Husqvarna-Viking and it is 41 years old and still sews beautifully. Yes, they are a heavy machine but much better than the plastic ones available these days.

    Thank you for responding. When I turned it on in the store, it ran smoothly and so quietly that I was instantly charmed. May I ask how you learned the age of your machine? I haven't been able to find my 49 Special anywhere except eBay, and that one didn't show a date. Also, it is selling for $602. 00! Imagine my shock upon seeing that price, although mine doesn't have any accessories. I would love to know the history of my model. If you can advise of any resource it will be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome from Central Florida! I don’t have any information for you on the machine, but there is a section here on QB for vintage machines. If you post your question there, you should get some good answers.

    Hahahaha, Now that's one I haven't seen. The Singer is beautiful of course but look at the lettering on the Husky. So classy! Can you send me any more photos and the details of it? Please, please, please?!?! Yours has got to be the oldest I've seen. Do you plan to use it?

    They Husky is a 27-20. I can't find a bobbin case/bobbins for it, but if/when I do I'll hook it to some kind of motor just to lay if nothing else. The linkage on the back side is to lower the feed dogs from a pedal below.
