You're probably right.  A curb find in Kansas City.   ;)

Thank you, Chris.

Awesome Gregg!  I'm really glad that you found one and it is a great looking unit.  It took awhile but the hunt is over. 

Chris is probably right that they'll be popping up all around you.    ;D
It wouldn't hurt to have two or three would it?  One in the living room, one in the den and one in the bedroom.

I bet Gregg feels like a little kid on Christmas Eve.

When are you making the trip?

Now is not the best time to mention more than one.   ;)

We'll be heading to the UP sometime around the 10th of July, give or take.

I don't want to get our little conversation moved, so I'll just say this.  I have been looking online and can't find a video of anyone restoring a Stereo Theater, every nut, bolt and wire.  This one may be the first.  A kid at Christmas did not look three years for the goodies.   ;)

I'll start a restoration thread in "Magnificent Magnavox" so we don't get on the wrong side of the moderator team.  I'll need lots of help on this project, so you guys feel free to jump right in.   :)

That is a 1963-65 Astro-Sonic Magna-Color instrument.  $1250 new.  How can it "work perfect" with that big cataract on the CRT?  Nice otherwise.  Solid state stereo with a tube TV.

Greg, glad the hunt is over and you found the stereo theatre you were looking for.  Please start a new thread on the restoration project when that gets underway.  This thread is hereby locked.....
