"Antique Victor Victrola record player and phonograph from the 1940's. Perfect working condition. This is a 2 part unit with the music playing portion in the upper cabinet and a separate lower cabinet that stores records. Each piece is designed to fit together where the feet of the upper piece locks into the molding on the top of the bottom cabinet. Very good vintage condition with only a few scratches. Beautiful piece of history! Measures: 18 ½"W x 21"D x 41"H. Must pick up."

For $100, it might be worth it.

Yes, they make you think there are two separate pieces. It doesn't look like it's been cut in two. Looks like a good buy. Jerry

The guy obviously thinks it's a tabletop and an aftermarket cabinet...

Looks to be American Walnut, that's always a plus in my book.

That's what I figured. I'm wondering if the one he has pictured is the one he's selling?

I spotted a few others on the site that may be worth looking at, for those who live in the area:

It looks like one, solid unit. Since it is Walnut, not a bad price.
