Offered here is an exceptionally clean RCA Victor Automatic Record Player model 45-EY-3 that is in excellent working condition. In February of 2019, I had a professional (who specializes in repairing these 45rpm record players) refurbish this player. He gave it a full top-to-bottom restoration, and polished the bakelite. I cannot recall what electronic components he replaced a tube or two? Rubber parts and other deteriorated vinyl bits were replaced with new.
He installed a brand new correct replacement stylus. Since then, it has seen less than two hours of very gentle use, exclusively with records in very good, clean condition. This record player is ready for many more years of excellent service. It functions very well mechanically and electronically -- as designed -- and sounds very good in its 1950s vacuum tube way. Surprisingly strong and loud at full volume, but obviously this is 1950s low-fidelity monophonic audio.
Cosmetically it is in Very Good to Excellent vintage condition -- not perfect, with only minor blemishes and living marks, but no cracks or chips. The top of the lid has more wear than any other area of the case. Original gold paint on platform beneath platter is amazingly good. Even the handle works as designed -- although I have a hard time with the idea of lugging this 11-pound, 10-ounce record player around by its handle like an old lunch box! No odors of any kind.
Comes with various print-outs of useful information, including the 8-page 1951 "Service Data" document from RCA Victor.
