Can any one identify this old Sears Silvertone Stereo. It would have been new in the early '60s. The chassis label has what looks like a model number 88-4339-0 but Sears I don't think that is a typical Sears number - don't they usually have 3 digits before the dash?
The tubes are (2) 50C5 and (1) 12AX7A. The stylus arm has a label "Cartridge #57-5823 Needle #575824D"

That number is the part number for the label itself. That appears to be a model 3274 from 1963.

These type players were the coolest looking phonos out then.... but worst sounding (in most cases). :D

Thanks for the info, Rocketeer. That's really cool! Is there any chance for finding a new cartridge, and tubes? I can get sound from the right speaker, but it's garbled, and I think the tube for the left speaker is dead. My daughter would like this unit to be operational, appearancewise, and doesn't care about the actual changer and electronics. Failing the repair of the actual electronics, can anyone help with removing the changer?

They didn't sound that bad when they were new. The challenge is to get them to sing like they did when they were new.
