Default Necci Elna Miracle

Leonf saw a Necci Elna Miracle at an estate sale today. We cannot find anything online about it. Does anyone here know anything? It looks like a late 50s, early 60s machine and has a strong Necci flavor. Janie, A picture will be forthcoming!

LOL, I have been drumming my fingers anxiously awaiting a picture.

So what to do - what I usually do - test my "google-fu" and I came up with a bunch of links (Not affiliated with links) about the Necchi Elna Miracle sewing machine.

Picture - https://picclick.com/Necchi-Elna-Mir...619410980.html
Manual - http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals....923877337.html
General info about Necchi machines - https://freenecchisewingmachinefiles...model_list.pdf which says it is a 1955 machine made in Italy??

There were some others, but ... you will have to find them yourself.

So I went back the next day and the price had dropped. I am guessing I may have been the only one interested.
I got it, oiled it up, and turned it by hand. Curious machine. Externally, it was messy and had a motor and a control pedal of different colors. It was indeed made in Spain Europe ( what? in case someone didnt know whre Spain is???)
I am about ready to replace the snipped cord and do the sizzle test.

It still doesn't have the corect power block, but it runs and stitches. Case smells bad.

I personally like Dial Gold or Irish Spring bar soap to leave in case for a while.
