Found this dumped in our woods, it has all the parts with it. It does not work, but is restorable. The only place where there is surface rust, is the back, and one side.

    Very nice........there were not many of these made since they skipped very badly. You need to do some research on-line.............

    Great Find !!! I have one of these mounted in my '57 ford wagon and it works perfectly !! Whats odd is the record plays upside down in that model and the model you have!! That was to supposed to reduce the skips.....and it does !! I also have the face off of one mounted in my '49 Lincoln to "Hide" the A/C blower box.

    never seen one of these! How does it work? Does the front door drop down for the record to go in?

    @ junkmanjoe...I'm not trying to steal chevy59 thunder of telling you how his machine works....hope he dosn't mind !!......The door opens up ^, the record loads in "Upside down" and plays. you can load maybe 4-6 records at the time.....when it finishes or 'you can reject it" it falls down in to the so-called tray that is actually the frame of the machine and lays there...when the record drops down its like it is falling about 6+ inches and looks bad if you watch it....kinda poor design. But it worked well in its time !! You have to wire the player into your exsisting car radio and tune it to a certain frequency & it will play thru your car speakers !
