What is the value of an Ironing Board with folding leg from a '62 Safari?

I have some interest in a Ironing Board with folding leg that I have from a 62 Safari. The problem is I don't know the value. Can anyone help me? You can email at r_whiten@hotmail.com
Thanks,
Rick

Wise guy answer: $0. I believe in wash and wear and only use an iron when I need to glue Formica onto something.

Whatever someone is willing to pay for it...I too am of the wash and wear school. (much to my wife's chagrin)

ironing? is that a golfing term?

for us, 'wash and wear' is also so of misleading.


when we on the go it's pretty much 'wearin' and mighty little 'washin'

the same goes for 'eatin' and 'drinkin' vs 'workin' and 'thinkin'

happy trails!!

It's pretty cool...usually the sort of thing that gets separated from the trailer - like this one has or is about to. With only one leg, it must have been built-in or attached to a cabinet or something. But I have to agree with the other posters, I rarely iron at home and do so even less on the road.

"Back in the day" when ladies traveled in cotton housedresses, men in slacks and homemade baked apple pies & Jello-salads or Spam casseroles were the norm at an Airstream Rally potluck dinner, I'm sure an ironing board in your trailer was a "necessity". Now, I'm sure the audience is much smaller - it would be a great find for someone doing a true restoration and missing theirs...otherwise, not so much. I would think the best place to reach the broadest audience for this item would be eBay...it could also be something used in other makes/models of vintage trailers. Somebody will want it...don't just throw it away without offering it up for auction first.
