Although it's painted in the Ford Motor Company's signature vintage colors, this Ford sewing machine is a straight-stitch machine made in Japan in the 1960s and, so far as we know, has no connection to the auto maker.
As with most of the machines that came out of Japan in the middle of the last century, it's a high-quality machine with plenty of power and nice features.
The stitch-length control has that nice click-click-click detent sound as you adjust your stitch from short to long or to reverse. It features the instant-release Patch-O-Matic foot pressure adjuster and the easy, bed-mounted feed drop that make this a fine machine for quilting or all around sewing.
It uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins, available anywhere sewing supplies are sold.
Besides all that, it's a really pretty machine. The unique styling and color scheme really make it stand out.
See and hear it sew in the video we've made. See how to thread it and wind the bobbin, see how to drop the feed and release the foot pressure for freehand quilting and sewing, see it sew Thick Stuff! It's entertaining and educational.
It's just come off the restoration bench here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine Restoration and its running and sewing like a new machine.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is restoring beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the styling, the quality of the materials, and the workmanship that went into these great machines, which just can't be duplicated today.
You, seriously, cannot buy a machine this good, new.
So we search out the best of these fine machines, the ones that are very lightly used, and open them up. We disassemble the tension, the motor, the bobbin case, take off the faceplate, the gear cases, the hand-wheel, the slide plate, the bottom plate, and the back access plate and get down to where the old dried-on oil and grease are. We clean out the packed-in lint and dust, remove the thread-jams, inspect the hook and the needle plate, and generally look for potential problems.
We use high-quality lubricants in all the right places, getting into those spots that aren't as obvious to the average user, and clean out the old hardened grease from the gear cases, and we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best.
After all of this, each machine is carefully detailed, to bring out it's original beauty. These are some of the finest examples of mid-century styling that you'll find, and we want each machine to be the very best that it can be.
Because we believe in these wonderful, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, we offer this free Lifetime Guarantee:
If you ever have a problem with one of our restored vintage machines, just bring or send it back to us and if we can fix it, we'll do so for free. You, of course, will pay for any parts or shipping.
