This old kegerator - turned beer fridge



So back a couple years ago now I saw a 'vintage' GE fridge for sale on Craigslist for $15.00 or something like that. It seemed like the perfect kegerator fridge. So I picked it up, took it apart to get it in my basement, and there it sat. Then somewhere along the line I saw this cute little Philco fridge that my buddy had. It had the same basic internal dimensions but overall, it was much smaller. I told him that if he ever decided to sell it that I wanted it. The GE continued to sit in pieces in my basement and the Philco sat in his garage. Then one day he decided to sell the Philco. Since winter was approaching and I wanted to paint the Philco we let it sit for another year in his garage. In the meantime I decided to put the GE back together, replaced the door panel to make space and cleaned it up with a little rubbing compound and wax. The chrome was in decent shape and it makes a great beer fridge. Here are some pics. It still has the original ice trays, and accessories. I have saved the door panel in the case I ever sell it to someone who wants the original parts.
