Aquired this set with what appears to be factory hanging brackets. He front dash appears precision made as well, sadly all that remains. Rare as the Masterpiece is, this qualifies as unique.Continue

Remote Controls

For those fortunate to possess the remote control hand unit, some questions. Are the buttons “positive” ie as an on/off switch, momentary ie you hold choice down till motor tunes, or electrodynamic ie press and release ? Further, are there any inherent problems (contacts etc), with the hand held device ?I’m on the hunt to acquire the above for my 39 AM BOL. See More
