I couldn't get a decent picture with my phone. The room in the basement it is in has no lights and my flash stinks.
Here is the best pic I could get:
The rust was just on the surface of the enamel and I was able to rub it off with a little spit on my finger.
Here is a better pic of the same fridge (other than the color):
Best I can tell is it is a 1928 Frigidaire AP-5 and fully restored is worth a lot of money according to this site: http://www.antiqueappliances.com/pro...idaire_ap5.htm
This one is obviously not worth that much as it has been sitting in our basement for lord knows how long. We've been here for 3 and a half years and it was down there when we bought the place.
It would make one sweet looking kegerator if it still works but I'd had to drill a hole through the door of a fridge potentially worth thousands.
Anyone ever have a similar situation? Any thoughts/ideas?
