Hello,

I have owned this for almost 50 years, since I was a child. I listened to Nixon resign on that radio.

I have been told it is out of a '70 or '71 280 SE Coupe or Convertible, I don't know for sure.

My father had it made for me when I was about 5 years old. It was a in car stereo store that had a dozen dashboards stacked up on their walls, each one featuring the latest after market radio. My father bought this one and had it professionally mounted on legs as you see it here. He also acquired an MB seat somewhere and had that mounted on a stand as well. The radio worked when I was a kid and was wired to speakers on my wall.

It's been in storage for some time. As you can see the seat has seen better days but used to slide back and forth on the tracks as if it were in a car. I doubt the radio/8-track works either, but who knows?

Some people have told me there is value to the parts. If you are going to chop it, that's fine, just please don't tell me. I can tell you as a car nut, and the son of a car nut it was one of the coolest things to have in my room growing up. It was in front of a window looking outside and I would sit there and pretend to drive while I listened to the radio.

I live in Europe now and shipping it here will never be in my future, so time to let someone else enjoy it. It would be cool in any car collector's man cave, garage, or office, or any young boy's bedroom.

It's presently located at my friend's house in San Diego. Local pickup only, or I can probably have him drop it at some kind of shipping place if you like.

Asking $2500 for both the dashboard and the seat.
