Open it up, it could be filled with 2A3s.

LOL yeah, those 2A3 transistors. Hmm, now I wonder if anyone ever came up with a solid state 2A3 sub….

That rusty hunk of junk doesn’t even have the headphone port…

ya its rusty. something tells me there's is a vintage IH tractor owner that would like to have it. Perhaps I'll save it from the dump. I'll remove all the 2a3's in there first!

Good thing it's water resistant, looks like it was exposed to some!

I serviced dozens of those back in the 70's! Were always packed solid with wheat in my part of the state. Always took a Jensen 6X9 coaxial speaker as a replacement.

We sprayed the exposed side of the speaker cone with tent waterproofing in a spray can. Water rolled right off.

Yea case looks pretty darn ate up, or I would have said, sandblast it down to bare steel and repaint to match popular tractors or machinery. But free parts is free parts. Like there is probably someone looking for the knobs, etc. for a resto.
