I recently purchased it from the original owner who’s wife bought it for him as a birthday gift in 1967. It’s model # is 106.173640 & the first mention of it I could find was in the 1972/1973 Sears Craftsman Power & Hand Tool catalog on page 111. It was listed there as being stock # 17364N (it’s model # minus the 3 digit manufacturer identifier). It was also listed again in the 1973 catalog on page 24 with the same item, or stock #, and again in the following year’s catalog 1974/1975 on page 33. I’ve enclosed a few photos for you to note the quite different labeling attached to it, as well as the fact that unlike other Sears Craftsman air compressors I’ve seen—this didn’t come with a Craftsman motor, it was equipped with a 2hp model 6K773AB 115/230 V Dayton capacitor start, compressor duty motor from the factory. I also included copies of the pages that featured it in the Sears Craftsman Power & Hand Tool catalogs that I earlier referenced. Any help at all regarding this wonderfully maintained vintage air compressor would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks everyone!
