Default Free of charge - Sobell Radiogram

Is anyone interested in a Sobell SG 679 Stereo Radiogram? Free to a good home!
It was purchased by my grandfather in 1964 for seventy two pounds and nine shillings. I have the original sales invoice. It was gifted to me as an engagement present back in the early 80s and so I would like it to go to someone who will appreciate and look after it rather than use for spares. It is in good condition and I attach a couple of photos of it. (I am advised that it has 8x5 speakers and shares a chassis with the GEC G979 and the McMichael MS208). Anyone who would like it will need to collect please; I am in Sheringham, Norfolk.

Hope you find a taker, it's a very nice, typically 60s piece.

A quick look at the Bank of England's inflation calculator shows that 72 in 1964 is equivalent to 1,470 in 2019.

The OP has informed us that this has gone to a new home, so I'll close this thread.
