The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
I just posted four photos of my pre-"B" Model 800 RF chassis.
I messed up the photo/album thing so if possible could the Mod please move all 4 pics into the one album?
I am told that they only made 150 of this model, then switched to the Model 800-B, of which they made 10,000.
Note the non-standard FM frequencies.
I am also told that the Serial # 17 is the lowest yet found and that there are only 4 found to-date, this being #4.
I do not have the matching amplifier or power supply and am told they are rare as well.
I have not yet decided what I will do with this. Restoration is not my gift, nor do I have the time or funds, so it will likely be sold or traded to someone who would like to do the restoration.
Enjoy the pics!
If you are interested in selling, please let me know.
I have an Export Receiver, along with a Scout 800 with the separate FM dial. So, this set would fit nicely in the progression: Export Receiver, 800, your pre-800 B, and then the common 800-B.
One of the other members here bought mine & I presume will be selling his.
He said mine appeared to present a little less restoration work.
