I purchased this Kelvinator fridge today here in San Diego. The gentleman that I bought it from stated that the building it was in was an old 1920's ice packing company. So when I brought it home I decided to do some research to see if I can find the year and model. The only numbers on the item were on the back which didn't appear to look original (CSX6R and 1126590). So looking at some vintage Kelvinator ads, this fridge appears to range from the late 1930's to early 1940's. I personally would love to know the exact model and year it was made with any additional info. HELP!!
Some additional info: The "freezer" box inside is small, square, and centered on-top. The bottom grate has horizontal lines running across that protects the compressor. The handle is vertical and broken but still usable.
My idea for this wonderful old vintage refrigerator is to turn it into a kegerator like the last picture. But, if this somehow happens to be a rare item, then I will restore it. Thank you for looking at this post and if any questions arise, please ask. Thanks again.
