This is my 4th. I saw the ad this morning and 30 minutes later it was in my trunk. It was 15 minutes from my house and only $45. It cleaned up real nice, the tank was black and you couldn't see any of the silver stripes on the black paint when I got it. Plus the wick is almost new. I love these heaters! Model 1710

Nice job. I think that's my favorite Perfection model.

So far, I've seen one of the glass chimney ones, decent condition, at an estate sale: $500. Two really rusted out metal chimneys with the diamond window: $275 and $150. I guess folks that have Perfections for sale out here have big dreams.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I too have seen some crazy pricing yet there is a house down the street from me with two perfections sitting in there garden for decorations. The founts are rotted thru and and holes in the body.  they brought home for $5 each.  No real logic to it.

Gotta love those Perfection heaters and the Firelights in particular.  As their catalog description used to say, "As cheerful as an open fireplace but handier and more efficient."

That's a really nice one. I have a handful of perfection heaters, but not that exact model.

That’s a slick looking heater, Duane! And, great deal with it being right around the corner.

Just sprayed it with Simple Green and rubbed with 0000 steel wool. It was filthy but it was oily dirt that came off easily then shined it up a bit.
