This absolutely gorgeous Torch Red 1947 Singer 221 Featherweight has been completely refurbished. It is the same color as a classic 1955 Thunderbird original paint color.
Original 1955 Ford Thunderbirds came in three colors - Raven Black, Thunderbird Blue and Torch Red.
The machine is as gorgeous as it looks in the photographs. What a great present for yourself or a deserving someone.
This machine runs very smoothly. It sews a nice stitch. A sample of the stitch accompanies the machine.
The photographs are of the listed Singer 221 Featherweight.
THE 120 VOLTAGE MOTOR OPERATES SMOOTHLY. THIS TORCH RED 221 FEATHERWEIGHT WILL OPERATE IN THE USA AND CANADA.
NO VOLTAGE ADAPTER IS NEEDED. The sewing machine is ready to just plug in and play.
The serial number of this Featherweight is AH212035. This dates the machine to August 19, 1947.
The original 221 Featherweight case is in excellent condition.
The stitches from this Featherweight are straight and tight with good tension and no skipping of the stitches. A sample of the stitching will accompany the sewing machine. It has been serviced and tested so that you can quilt, sew or proudly display the Featherweight upon its arrival.
All of the Featherweights that I sell have been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, lubricated and tested. The testing consists of the machine going through a final 8 point checklist before being listed. The checklist is given toward the end of the listing description.
Featherweights are notorious for being damaged while being shipped. It is very important that they be carefully and properly packed. It takes over an hour to properly pack a Featherweight for safe shipment. I have packed and shipped many Featherweights and have the experience to provide safe shipping.
