These parts came out of Provincial console early 1960s model.


People do this to sell the parts, and turn the beautiful cabinet into a quilt holder ore something.


These parts are  in good working condition. To me it is rather sad to see a model cannibalized this way.

The stereo radio and turntable are in wonderful shape ... Everything works. The only thing missing is one, of the labels on the turn table.


It is rather sad to see this done to a beautiful piece of American history and a masterpiece of art.


The hand made speakers, and the made in Texas chassis are all there, stripped from their  Provincial console cabinet ... 

I guess if you need some parts for a model you are restoring this is a wonderful way to find what you are needing ...

But still it make me sad to see a model stripped down like this. Even the vacuum tubes are removed for a easy sell.

They just do not make these beauties anymore, they are masterpieces of American technology and know-how.

So if you have one keep her intact and watch her grow in value over the coming year and don't turn her into a storage unit for blankets.  Let her continue to play sweet music as she was made to do, and be a joy to everyone.
