Up for sale is one (1) "Electrophonic" Stereo AM/FM Receiver and 8 Track Player that is in good condition having just been serviced. This unit has it's own integrated amplifier so all you have to do is hook up some speakers and you're ready to go. This unit will be guaranteed to operate as described for a period of 14 days after the confirmed delivery date. The winning bidder may return the unit ONLY 'IF' defective for a refund of the 'purchase' price ONLY. ( RESERVE SET AT $55.00 )

NO bids will be accepted from persons with three (3) or less 'Positive' feedbacks. Sorry......But I've had too many 'Non-Paying' bidders lately.

Depending on what type of unit & accessories are being sold it is my opinion that a person should never have to pay over $70.00 for a serviced 8 track unit and my prices reflect that. I feel my feedback speaks for itself. There are some 'sellers' that put a whole lot of pictures of the inside of the unit trying to impress potential bidders and then charge anywhere from $100.00 to $200.00 for a serviced unit. Just because the unit is called 'Vintage' doesn't justify the prices that some 'sellers are asking. To me 'Vintage' just means 'Old'.

THE GOOD: This unit has just been serviced. The head was cleaned, demagnetized, and aligned to insure there is no 'crosstalk' between tracks. All rotary or sliding control 'pots' were chemically spray cleaned using 'Radio Shack' aerosol contact cleaner/lubricant. All burnt out indicator lamps were replaced as needed. A NEW drive belt was insatlled. And lastly the cabinet was refinished. After the servicing was completed all functions were tested and found to be operating as designed. If the unit is found to be defective, the winning bidder/purchaser will have 14 days from the 'confirmed' delivery date to return the item for a refund of the purchase price ONLY. ALL shipping costs are the sole responsibility of the purchaser of this unit.

THE BAD: Nothing other than it's not free.

THE UGLY: This unit will ONLY ship by one of the following services. USPS Parcel Post, USPS Priority Mail, or UPS Ground Service. If UPS Ground Service is desired there will be a $4.00 fuel surcharge that MUST be added to the final total cost. It's a 56 mile round trip to my nearest UPS shipping facility. If UPS is selected and the fuel surcharge is not added to the final cost the unit will be shipped using USPS Parcel Post service. Insurance is suggested but is not mandatory if you feel like taking a chance. The unit will leave my premises in the condition stated in the listing. That being said I will NOT be held responsible for any damage that may occur during shipping. That's what insurance is for. I do NOT charge inflated shipping costs. Use the calculator shown in the listing to figure your actual cost to have this item shipped from zipcode 75472-Point,Tx. to your zipcode/adress. The packed carton is 21" x 15" x 5" and weighs 13 lbs. 11 oz.

The winning bidder will have ten (10) days from the auction closing to complete the transaction. If not completed within that time frame a 'Non-Paying' bidder alert will be filed with E-Bay.
