Automatic Radio SEP9800

 

       
This 1971 8-track player by Boston based Automatic Radio was picked up in a junk shop in upper New York state for $5. It needs a new belt and various other bits, and will always be a 'workaday' exhibit due to the awful staining of the case, espefcially the cream trim. When found it was caked in dark brown tarry layers and while nowhere near perfect, it is at least presentable now.. Thanks to Greased Lightining spray and several rolls of kitchen towel.....
