I have a family member with a 40th birthday coming up, and I thought it'd be great to give them a restored fan from their birth year: 1979. Any ideas on good models from that year?

Maybe a later Hunter 16" with the OSHA guard and wood grain badge? I'm not sure of their exact year though. Or a Galaxy/Lasko or Panasonic fan with the clear blue blades? A Patton floor fan with blue blades could also be of that time period.

This, honestly, is not an era I've much of an interest in, so I'm at a bit of a loss. I spotted this Standard fan on sale locally. It fits the description of the Panasonic or Galaxy/Lasko. I'm thinking this would for the bill? They're asking $25. It looks like the white plastic has quite a bit of yellowing.

I don't know the brand - it's probably from Taiwan. They were sold with many different names in the 80s. $25 is upper end for the price. It's better than a modern oscillating fan but I think a Panasonic, Lasko, or Patton would be better.
