Date this furnace...she's a hottie!

I could barely read the info off the data tag on this furnace.

Fedders Gas Furnace 60,000 BTU

What I thought I saw was Mod# GU06001T SN# CB108647

I can't find that SN or Mod in either the Prestons Guide or my Carson Dunlop guide.

I think it may have been a Mod# GUC60C1T which makes it 1967...pretty darn close to the age of this apt.

I was hoping to cross reference with the SN# but haven't had any luck.

Any help?

From the sound of it, just too damned old to rely on anymore. [:D][:-dev3][:D]

Yeah I know, I'm a lot of help.

I just had this on a house yesterday (old unit, tag was gone). I told the lady it was working fine today, but was already beyond average rated life, etc., etc., etc., it could go out for good tomorrow. I know you're trying to be exact (good for you), but past a certain point it really isn't that relevent. Texans are just stubborn. [;)]

November '67?

I'll go with that. Thanks Jim and Brian.

Yeah, I had already told the lady it was time to put this little soldier to rest. I just like to add the date if I can find it. Besides, this was my personal best, the oldest gas furnace I've ever inspected. Broke the old record of '69.

The sad thing is, this furnace looked better than the two 1990 rust buckets I inspected yesterday!
