I came across this page, and others, while researching my Tappan Deluxe, and thought I'd post my story, now that I have it up and running. I bought it from a friend two years ago here in Dayton, Ohio, who said it was a 1954, but now it seems to be of earlier vintage. It's in beautiful condition, missing only the burner covers and manual. It's a Tappan Deluxe CP model (series 60?). Model # AV667 3, serial #19334. It has the red knob rings, the two Vycor glass grate inserts, three chrome drawers in the left compartment (but none have the word "crisper" on it), Telechron clock in the center of the backsplash and the Visiminder timer to the left. The oven walls are chrome. Everything seems to work well after some tinkering with the wiring, and it looks great in my old kitchen.

    GORGEOUS old Tappan!! I'd love to see more pics (of its insides, and/or how those rectangular dial-things on either side of its back work?) if you'd be able to add another post?!

    [and for the record, you've got me thinking "bad thoughts" by showing it off...it just so happens there's half a fleet of one of my boss' collections of old ranges (mostly Chambers) residing (unused) at the shop where I work...plus the perfectly designed original space for one of 'em in my own (1954) kitchen...nothing wrong in the slightest with my current (modern) Kenmore range, but mebbe I really *should* "appropriate" myself a Chambers...?? <LOL>]
