It looks great! I wouldn't buy it, nor would I have mine painted that color. However, it probably looks a lot better than it did before the paint job. From a profit point of view, it's better than if it had been repainted black. It also beats being recycled or made into a parts machine.

There is another one like it also on ebay, but the colors are better. I have black 301a, not sure I would have gone for this color scheme at any price... but if the same machine was done over in a peach or aqua, might have worked. Regardless, I love seeing them fixed up...

It's beautiful but $995? Yikes. Can't imagine paying that. Love my black and tan 301s.

Beautiful machine, for sure. I went over to seller's other items and they had a copper/cream 301, too. Too pricey for me.

Just another niche market. There are so many people painting FWs now that someone was bound to start painting the 301s. Very pretty, yes, but too rich for my pocket book.

I agree. I hope s/he can sell it for that price.

I'd like a sewing machine painted to match my car!
