This one has the original side and top plastics. The corner caps were replaced many years ago. The plastics have some shrinkage but still fit between the metal castings. The color cylinders are missing but the original motors & brackets are there. Replacement motors and color cylinders are readily available as reproduction parts. The coin mechanism assembly is also missing so it is wired for “free-play”. The cabinet is solid and complete. It has a new lock.
As of January 2013 - The record changer is working. Lubricated it and checked adjustments. It is still running at 78 rpm. Installed a new cartridge & needle. The keyboard and selector coil bank is in good working order making all 20 selections. It has the correct amplifier which has been re-capped and has a new power cord.
With some elbow grease, it can be a nice original machine or it will make a great restoration project.
