This is the 1946 AMI 'Model A' jukebox that my dad bought about a dozen years ago for his 1950's party room. Dad's gone now, but his jukebox still belts out the tunes.
It was the first jukebox after WWII to use a huge amount of plastic and became know as the "mother of plastic"
It plays 78 rpms and has a big rich sound which is at 'eye level....or should I say, ear level?' because the speaker (just one large speaker) is mounted at the top of the box rather than below like most jukeboxes.
....and yes there is one of the colored light tubes (right side) that I need to replace.
