    Every thing on it looks original, cords and belts. The finish is in wonderful shape, including the decals. I want to read the manual, clean it a little bit and oil it. The woman who owned it died at 93 years. She probably was the only owner. I found her name in the manual, so I named her Ruth , after her owner. Her manufacture date is 2 days after I was born. We were ment to be together.

    She looks so good my husband thinks I should have her put in a clear plastic case and displayed in the livingroom. Of course you can guess what I think of that idea.

    How wonderful - certainly seems Ruth was meant to be yours. Congratulations - you will enjoy sewing with Ruth. FWs are so cute and so much fun to sew on.

    Oh Good...I am so glad it is a happy ending! Ruth found a home! That is a great price for the condition you described. I actually spent 300$ on mine but it is a centennial model in pristine condition...not a scratch on her...all accessories and case as well..Her name is "Prissy"
