Default Help with info on this beautiful machine

We’re in New York cleaning out my husband‘s grandparents home as it has just been sold. There’s a beautiful sewing machine that my husband remembers his grandmother using as a child. It’s a singer machine but it says “modern rebuilt singer machine” across the top and the brass plate and number plate have both been painted over so I’m assuming that’s part of the re-build. If anyone has any information on this, that would be very much appreciated.
photos to follow.. for some reason I can’t upload in this post.

It looks like some of the bobbins are not for this machine.

That is a rebuilt Singer model 66. A couple of threads about rebuilt machines are at Great Eastern Rebuilt Singer and refurbished or electrified sewing machines from 1930s and 1940s and there is a manual for rebuilt Singer machines at https://www.sil.si.edu/DigitalCollec...ch-results.cfm

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5” Birthday Swap
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

Thank you! I’ll work on doing that. We have to be out of this house on Wed so I’ll to my eyeballs in amazing furniture and knickknacks : )
I’m going to call a local sewing machine shop tom. I really wish we could bring it back to Fla with us. So sad to see it go..
