Age and Value of a Magnavox Record Player and Radio

Could someone tell me about this Magnavox automatic 400 record player with am/fm radio? I am interested in how old it is maybe and what it's worth.

From what I am seeing on eBay, they are from the mid-twentieth century and are worth in the $200 to $300 range

Hi,

I would say that this is from the 1960 era. I have seen them on E bay for $250 and up. This is a beautiful vintage record player and stereo. This brings back memories!

Blessings,

Robyn

This brings back lovely memories!! The console turntables were popular from the 50s-70s.

I think this one is from the very early 70s (if it is the original turntable) and based on the spool style decorations on the front) if the turntable is the original one. It is possible the cases is older and a newer turntable was dropped into it. Do you have any history on the piece?

They, sadly, fetch very little where I am. The most I have ever seen one sell for is $35 at a flea market. Most sell for much less. If you were in a place with a high demand and low supply for this, you may fetch much more.

The types that seem to fetch more money are those that are tricked out with the turntable, 8 track, and TV, where everything is in tip top working order. Those can fetch between $100 and $200.

Now, that said, some people take ones like yours apart and sell it off by the piece and get double or triple the "as is" value. This means the turntable, the arm, the motor, the needle, the case all pieced out, can fetch more on their own.

It is a strange dynamic, that frankly makes me sad since these are neat-o items!

Post back if you sell it and what you fetch for it!
