1959 (or 1960?) Motorola 3 channel stereo console with a cabinet made by Drexel.
The 1960 Motorola model SK-32 was part of a line of fairly good quality Drexel furniture called 'Declaration'. This one actually has some value due to furniture collectors' desire to have all of a specific line. The Declaration line seems to be one of Drexel's more collectible. It is also intresting in that it is a 3-channel model with a stereo pair of upper frequency single-ended EL-84 amps and a combined L+R low frequency push-pull EL-84 amp to power that enormous 15" woofer mounted behind the vertical slats.
Original Price in 1959: $550

This is all tube amplifier and that needs some restoration (new caps?). Scratchy volume control. The darker cabinets were made to hold record albumns and have been sold.
