Found this recently at an online estate auction. It is said to be non-working, and it looks a little rough. Is it a good buy at its current bid?

For yourself, maybe. To flip sometime in the future, no. French provincial stereo consoles tend to not be good sellers. I would suspect that the tubes are worth more then the entire console itself. At least the FM tuner is true MPX stereo. It all comes down to why do you want it.

Appears to be made by Wells-Gardner.
I wish I had a dollar for every one of those BSR changers I had to unstick.

Smaller sets are of more interest to me, so I was looking at it as a possible flip. It sounds like losing money on it is a real possibility. I'll let someone else take it.

Looks like a 1964 or 65 model, the BSR record changer is not original, would have had a VM changer.
