Except for Brady-Bunch Orange, all the worst late-60s colors in one late-60s GE ad!

Thanks to growing up in North Dakota — where nobody got rid of perfectly-good appliances until they stopped working, exploded, caught fire or got skunked by an actual skunk — I am very familiar with Avocado and Harvest (called “Harvest Gold”* in my neck of the woods). On the other hand, I only have fleeting memories of Woodhue, Frost White and Mist Blue after seeing them here, and the latter two mostly just remind me of those long-expired pastel mints that elderly relatives always had somewhere in their house in a decorative glass container. [shudder]

*I have been informed that Harvest Gold is darker than simply Harvest, but still lighter than the infamous Harvest Black.

General Electric Air Conditioners
…in decorator colors

Woodhue – Harvest – Avocado – Frost White – Mist Blue

Air conditioners in color. What a way to decorate a window!

Bedrooms, compact living rooms, and kitchens can all be made cooler. And more colorful.

The GE Fashionette “6000” even does things for the outside of your house.

inside and out, the colors never chip or peel. They can’t. They’re molded right into GE’s rugged Lexan® molded case. It won’t even rust.

This Fashionette weighs only 62 lbs. And you can install it in minutes (if the window doesn’t stick) in windows narrow to 20 1/2”.

Now where do you want the air? Left? Right? Focus the louvers to suit yourself and forget about drafts completely. There are none because Fashionette directs air up and around, not at you.

Air conditioners in color. Buy a different color for each room. Why not?
