Lustron Brochures

More eBay Finds
A recent eBay acquisition brings us back to the realm of Lustron.  Here we have two brochures that address questions that potential buyers would have about the Lustron home.  I'm not sure about the year, but as they are only touting one model, it would stand to reason this is from the "first run" of the company.

Some highlights:

Lightning - "Imagine a self-contained lightning rod!"  ...They obviously didn't run that phrase by the marketing department.  Who wants to live in a lightning rod?!?

Fireplaces - "Sorry, no fireplace."

Basement - "None needed--ample storage space!"  ...Sure.

Photos for your viewing.  Enjoy.


  1. I always thought it would be great to live in a Lustron home until I realized the interior walls would be like the exterior of a refrigerator. That cured me of the metal house idea. Could be great student or rental housing though.
