We were told this machine was purchased new in Italy and hitched a ride to America in the belly of a US bomber returning home. Of course we cannot confirm or deny that allegation. What we do know is that the previous owner loved this machine, and it appears to have been very well taken care of over the years. It includes almost all of the original Necchi brand accessories (pictured), many which you do not see very often anymore.
The motor has been replaced at some time in the past. The newer motor is plenty strong and will out sew most anything else sold under the household moniker, but the internal light and the motor speed control were removed during the repair process.
This machine is overall very quiet and produces an amazingly precise stitch in both straight and zig zag options.
Cabinet Pictured is Available separately.
