favorite this post vintage J C Penney Am/Fm/Cassette/8track, w/speakers excellent! - $120 (Port Angeles) hide this posting unhide


condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: J C Penney
model name / number: 683-1783

Nice clean unit...circa 1974 or so...model 683-1783. (Quickdraw McGraw replica lunch box not included...)
All functions work, but not sure of backlight for tuner. The light that is behind the tuner indicator works fine, but I think there is a "general" backlight that isn't working...
AM/FM pulls in stations perfectly.
Cassette plays great!
8 track works fine.
Has a "timer" function and a "sleep" function so you can set it at night to turn off when you drift off yourself, and has a very nice clock as well.
Two sets of RCA jacks for both an "aux" and the "phono", so you can play that old vinyl all you want on your very own turntable (not included).
Service manual is included with the stereo, which has schematics for all components, including one for the (at that time...I dont have it) BSR turntable which was available with the full system. (The original speakers are, alas, not included since I don't have them...) but...
Also included is a pair of Teac bookshelf speakers, working great!
Thanks for looking!
