Pictured above is our really nice Montgomery Ward sewing machine. It is made in Japan and obviously has the same degree of quality as their good automobiles. We bought it at a great outdoor flea market in York, PA for the huge sum of $5.00 in 2006.
It is one of Jim's favorite machines. It is in like-new condition as seen in the picture. Perhaps we should have removed the blue tape before we took the photo, but the machine was in use and the tape was marking a seam allowance. The machine is all metal, very heavy and smooth running. It also has a built-in adjustable zigzag feature controlled by the two sliding levers on the top side. The operation of the forward/reverse lever may be backwards to some people.
SN 750099, Sewing head model URR-785 also has SN 55X; Portable Case Model No. URR-100.
