VINTAGE SEARS SEWING MACHINE PINK - MODEL 35, 158.353 Kenmore Heavy Duty VIDEO. This is a very rare - Sears Kenmore Model 35 158.353. This is a very heavy machine- it weighs over 33 pounds. It's been stored in a sewing cabinet and I just took it out of that cabinet today when I bought it from an estate.
Also there is a video link to see this machine working below. From what I can see, it does appear to be working and running ok. This is a collectible, it is old.
It hasn't been used in years. It needs to be serviced. It can become a daily use machine but it will need to be serviced first. Even if it's just a tune up and oil, I would still have it looked at. The power cord has some electrical tape wrapped around it like it's been repaired.This will need to be addressed if you plan on using this machine and not just using it for decoration. I had it running and powered on just fine, but I would still have it looked at. Also this machine is meant to be in a sewing cabinet or case with a base for the bottom for it to rest in. Just a heads up, if you plan on sewing with it you will want some sort of case for it to sit in. You can see the video of the sewing machine at the following YouTube link.
