Quoted from- http://www.philcoradio.com/history.htm
"Philco began a downward spiral in the fifties, culminating in being purchased by Ford Motor Company in 1961.
The Philco name survived for a time as Philco-Ford, but Ford sold Philco to GTE-Sylvania in 1974. "

White Consoldiated purchased numerous other major appliance competitors during the 1970s, including Philco, the Ford appliance division in 1977 and Frigidaire from General Motors in 1979.

I lived near the Philco-Ford plant in Philly when i was younger, alot of my buddies and their parents worked there. Really hurt the area when they closed down.

I had a Philco-Ford refrigerator. One of the two side by side door models. I can tell you that it was built! that thing weighed a ton and lasted forever. I had to move it times, and nearly killed myself everytime. The last time did it for me, I had to bring it upstairs, and took 4 people and an appliance dolly. After that, when the compressor went out and it was going to cost $500 just to replace the compressor, I decided it was time for a new fridge. The people that installed the new fridge cussed me out the entire time they were carrying the onld one downstairs!! I'm glad I set the fee with them carrying the onld one down BEFORE they did it!

Lightbulb Ford Refrigerator

Ever hear of a Ford Pinto Refrigerator? NO, NOT THE CAR, a REFRIGERATOR. If someone has, let me know. I have a friend who OWNS one, and is looking to sell it. If it isn't worth squat, than he'll just trash it.

I would think it would be worth a pretty penny these days purely for nostalgia value - not to mention rarity.

GM made products too.

The products generally are higher quality for ford and GM appliances.

And like said earlier, ford designed some guns, as well as many many other things.
He was a very smart man.

I have a old motor on a sander I restored that was a delco 120 volt . They were bought out by GM if I remember. I have a lot of the old philco stuff I need to look into . I got a lot of it from the old repair guys. I started out as a repair tech myself. As far as ford goes back in the old days of wood being used in the car frames Henry Ford had a lot of left over wood scraps. So he wanted to come up with a use of it so he came up with a charcoal kit he sold in model Ts or As if I remember correctly . It is what now is known as the kingsford charcoal company. He sold it out after they quit using wood.
