I have never seen a Penncrest belt drive before. I'm sure someone else has one. If you have one, post a picture of it here  :up:

This must have been JC Penny's attempt to compete with the Sears Homart. The Homart fans looked like this around this same time period. That Penncrest is really cool and great you have the brochure and sales receipt. That was a significant chunk of change in 1969.

Probably between $300/$400 in today's money 💰. Still waiting for someone to post a picture of theirs...:eyes

I HAVE THE KENMORE VERSION AND THE FRAMING, PANELS AND ESPECIALLY THE SHAPE OF THE PANEL HOLDING THE KNOBS IS A RINGER FOR THE KENMORE SO MAYBE THE FRAME WAS USING SIMILAR DIES (THE LOUVERS ARE DIFFERENT) WITH A DIFFERENT MOTOR AND BLADE AND GRILLE, BUT EVEN THE V BLADE STAND IS SIMILAR. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE 2 SIDE BY SIDE. I DO HAVE THIS FAN IN A COUPLE OF MY VINTAGE PENNEYS CATALOGUES

Interesting thread here! I'd been familiar with the Kenmore and always considered it a typical Homart Cooler with an updated cabinet.

The Penncrest is eerily similar to the Kenmore but with different pulley and more rounded blades (different rivet pattern on the blades?) and a "GE motor." Got me wondering if that's the same as the Craftsman 1/6 hp in the Homarts.

It's a nice fan, not that much different from the sears kenmore version. I'm really surprised that nobody else has one. They must have been at least somewhat competitive with the Kenmore. I have owned a few of those, including a new old stock one still in the box. I'm still keeping this thread alive hoping someone will post a picture of theirs here
