...AND it HAS BIDS! :shock: it looks like a cut down tambour door with a luan plywood face, and half a dozen Home Depot wood appliques slapped onto it.

Ugh, all one wants but the beast is over $100 and there is less than 2hrs left at the time of this post...

There has got to be some appeal to this, not quite sure what it is, because it was a boy scout project or the weird look.

Could start a trend, great way to move on an orphan chassis...

Appears the on/off/ volume control is mounted separate from the chassis. Looking around for my Lincoln logs, mount a chassis and controls in the roof of a log cabin.

The volume control was on the opposite of the radio from the tuner. They also mounted the chassis slanted in the log version, the same way they were originally mounted in the plastic case. (Note angle of the interlock connector.)
