Motorola SK36M

Happy to have found one of these models nearby in decent overall condition. Came out of the 3rd floor or a house slated to be demolished. 3 channel stereo unit, phono only made in 59 for the 1960 model year. Instead of the typical V-M record changer it uses a Motorola branded BSR.

No chance, the scratch on the companion speaker looks fresh. This is the first Drexel declaration model 💰

You could find appropriate legs for it they are just little stubby things nothing really special

Re: 1959 Zenith SF2560

Not a keeper. Found it on the wrong coast.

It uses their push pull 6BQ5 amp, 12" woofers and 5" tweeters. The fancier cabinets had horns

1959 Zenith SF2560

Found this guy out west. Restored via our radio club.
Purchased by some "drunk guys" who heard it play all day at the antiques/street fair and didn't want to leave without it.

Great looking, kind of rare, and blonde. What more could you ask for. I would love to hear this one. You may have mentioned it before, but is it going to be a keeper?
