In fall of 2016 while traveling back to the midwest, I found this Magnavox console at a "permanent" garage sale in Kimball , NE for $10.
Managed to cram it into the "trailbreaker" and brought it eventually to my old buddy in southern Illinois.
Back then I took notes of the cans before I left town and mailed replacements to my friend which he since replaced in the amplifier section...

He's about to start work on renewing the tuner/preamp section and wondering if the tuner/preamp literature I have for a "symphony" model
would suffice for cap/resistor values?

Otherwise I'm wanting to find out what the correct photofact or service literature is for this model, I believe it is a "concert" series judging by one of my past posts on the "symphony series" and the helpful info everyone provided at that time....
Here are 2 photos of interior of console my friend sent me, unfortunately the cabinet is buried at the moment in his carport...
Thanks all,
Kent

For Magnavox it is best to get the chassis number.

Johnny's right, you need to get the stamped number off the chassis. I'm not aware of Magnavox using 4 digits so I'm assuming that's a 1ST-615 which would be a 1961 Concerto in American Traditional style with a cherry finish? Is this what it looks like?

A 1ST615 should have the 88 series amp chassis and the 59 series tuner, probably a 59-24-XX. Sams 454, maybe?

Thanks Larry and Greg for the information,
I haven't heard back from my friend yet if he's checked stamped chassis number on top of main amp?
Needless to say, if my memory isn't all gone from hauling it 500 miles 2 yrs ago, I believe it is the "Concerto american traditional/cherry" version though the cabinet had faded to a dirty blonde in the wildcat hills high altitude dry air of western Nebraska/eastern Wyoming.... $350 was a lot of change for a good quality budget console in those days for a ranch family, I'll check into that photofact 454 and see if it seems similar to what I recall looking at
