Hi. I have my dads console. Canada anyone tell me what year and or any value? It turns on. The radio works but reception may be sketchy. Didn't have time to check record player.

Basically has next to no value due to the vintage and styling. Looks late 60's, early 70's to me

Ok thanks. Just curious. What about the vintage or styling makes it no value? Just the make and model? Or 3 screens on front? Or the record player? So curious about these things. Thanks.

Its a Mediterranean style cabinet. You often see wrought Iron grills like that on that style. Sometimes a slate top.
Those as well as Traditional and Early American aren't much sought after.

Mid Century Modern (MCM) style such as Danish Modern is really hot right now.

I can't predict the trends, but who knows what the future holds? Maybe this style will become then next hot thing?

Magnavox is a respectable brand, pretty sure that one has four output transistors, two for each channel.
It takes a truck and two strong people to move it, which hurts the value as well as the styling.

The turntable probably needs to be lubed and the tone arm should have a new needle if you plan to use it. Parts are not overly expensive.
