I am not finding much at all about this. I did find one post that says that you may need to look at the back of the radio or turntable to find the date there. Other than this they don't have any other information except a pamphlet that is not for your model. I would suggest that you join a few stereo/radio forums online. These people have been collecting and restoring these units for years. Hopefully someone there will give you a bit more information about your unit. The closest information I can find is the approximate date it was made was in the late 50s to 60s which seems right because that is when these units were the most popular in homes.

The history of the manufacturer was first 'Electrical Products Mfg. Co. Ltd.'....and then later became 'Fleetwood Corporation; Montreal.'

I wasn't able to find your exact console, but this console is similar to yours, and is in good condition. It's selling for $100. They range from $100 on up.

Not really sure what you mean when you ask for information - do you plan to restore this for personal use or do you plan to sell?

This is almost an unknown company and looks like it was rarely sold outside of Canada. This particular model appears to have been made between 1975- 1979 judging from other model numbers.
This one has an 8-track which 'dates' it to about that time as that is about the heyday period of the 8-track.
Do you know if it is working in any capacity?
As to value - your area will have a lot to do with value as these cannot be shipped so it would be for pick up only. Most areas are not into these as they are large and difficult to move and the world is into 'pack up and move' and do not want large pieces to move.

This unit sold for $150 in 2018:

The brand of record player will have more to do with value than anything else about this unit - especially if it is working.

If you want to know more about the unit or need help checking it out, you can try asking questions on some of the forums.
