Appears to be missing the light attachment. Also, seller notes that it doesn't work and there may be missing parts. Located near Trenton, NJ.

Someone should save this machine. These are pretty scarce. Save it from becoming a bar or a storage cabinet.

Who knows what this means... "Has a few of the victrola components still, but is not a working player."

The question is WHAT parts? It is obviously missing the light post attachment, which might not be hard to make, but the guts are important...

The arm was generic - Heineman - and probably the spring motor. The cord on these was only for the lamp.

I would go for it if it wasn't so far away. Hope someone on the forum saves it. Here are the only pictures posted on craigslist.

We have restored many of these Moderola's and currently have 8 in the collection. We would love to bring this phonograph back to it former glory. Wish we had a way to get it to Florida. I was in Lawrenceville on vacation last month and probably drove by this house. Wish It was up for sale then.

I had seen it listed last week and when contacted was told it was no longer available.
