This was no cheapie at all in 1967!! I have contacted repair shops in my area. The previous owner only used the Radio Only? Also, assuming the record player hasn't been swapped out in the past, that's a good way to check.
Discontinued as they sold slowly post 1962, their peak sales year. The Wood don't have a scratch on it!! Hope this is what I need but I do have one question and appreciate any more info that you can give. If the console has a built-in 8-track tape player, its likely from the 1970s. Thanks again and have a great holiday. As much as I would like to do myself, I do not want to damage this machine. I contacted a repairman in my area and he came to my house the last week in October. Just a picture of the record changer can give some great clues.
I have pictures of the dash with the radio removed if i … t will help. This is a must if the unit is to go on giving good daily service. Great bass, although the high frequencies had a bit of fuzzy distortion that seems typical of most solid-state units from that era. Manual is from our family tv and radio repair shop that closed in the early 90's. Some of these capacitors are getting harder to find and more expensive. The Weight is about 20 Pound's!! I also realize that I won't repair this unit myself. It does look like a nice console though, enjoy it.
On the rear of the unit, in the center of the particle board cover that hides the components, you will see a tag, usually white in color, that says Philco-Ford, Model and Serial Numbers. I want to keep it all Original!! I mainly want it for the record player and it works just fine except I have to replace the needle. Please report harassment as such so that we can investigate. I can make out the regular paper caps there and the resistors, but I'd like to know what the other components on that board are before I start replacing them, so I can do them all at once. As far as the cap, the numbers I saw on the one that was removed were as I stated and this is what the repairman stated also. .
It probably needs some other service as well while it's there and they will go over that as well. Many of these websites have a way to contact the creator, and the people are usually very helpful. I've never seen one just about 7 Foot Long!!! I will try to see the other numbers on it. Unauthorized copying, distribution, and purchasing of copyrighted materials is a serious legal matter.
