“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
If they made'em like that today, they'd last into the next century and still be doing their job. I had a small IH freezer that I gave to my sister-in-law and she'll be able to pass it down to her daughters. The only problem with them was the amount of moisture that the insulation would retain and thereby becoming ultra heavy, but never stopped doing their job.
Yep, that looks like you could save a wife in it. I bet you could even fit in a mistress as well!
I was thinking Wives Saver - I wonder if Kerry has room left in his.
My Dad drew patents (by hand) for International Harvester.

I remember the 1950's "freezer plans". Get the freezer chest for next to nothing, but you had to contract to buy either a 1/4, 1/2 or whole butchered steer at a fixed price every so often. These plans still exist today.
Where does one find such a plan?
I guess a Google search might turn up one.
In the 30's dad delivered milk by horse drawn wagon to the commercial area in Atlanta now known as "Underground Atlanta". One thing he liked was that when his route was completed he could go to sleep and the horse would go back to the barn. They replaced the horse and wagon with an IH truck. He said it wouldn't pull the hat off your head.
We had one of those IH chest freezers until just a few years ago when the compressor finally died. Bought it used in the late '70's.Not very energy efficient, but froze things to 'rock' consistency.
No experience with an IH freezer but I once issued an IH M1 Garand. Aside from an initial cleaning, range time and periodic dusting off, never required more than a patch through the bore. Kept oil-free for inspections, piece simply failed to rust. Even in the humidity of Washington, DC. I wasn't a dinger by any stretch but I managed to qualify with the M1, M14 and M16.
Yeah, That's what parkerizing is all about!
