Hi and welcome,

Looks like a Philips F5G62A from 1957 or theraabouts:

https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/philips_g62a.html#

Behind the rectangular opening near the lower middle of the back there's a metal plate which will confirm the model number. The record deck has been replaced by a Garrard unit from roughly the early '70s, maybe a MkII or MkIII SP25.

Philips or Stella from the 1950's, I agree the turntable looks like it's been changed, that looks more 60's/70's.

... and probably a whole lot easier to get to work reliably than some of Philips' own contraptions

... and should sound very good once some restoration work is done on it. What are your plans for it?
