    I picked one up on Craigslist with the Twin Towers Skyline...plays all my 45's
     
  3. OK here are a few I've restored and a coke machine also. I used to really be into finding and restoring jukeboxes and other antiques. I was also into pinball machines. I sold the pinballs and kept the jukeboxes.

    Here's a Seeburg "G" we picked up yesterday. Got it from my grandmothers neighbor who we've known for 40+ years.

    Price was right.....free!!

    I purchased a 1953 AMI E 120 Jukebox at the James Dean Run last year.

    When I purchased it, the lights and light mechanism works, turn table spins (a little to slow), and the mechanism that picks up the record doesn't move correctly. I hope to get around to get it running or find someone in Indiana to fix it.

    Sneaky--

    I think your AMI "C" model is from 1949, because I've got the same exact one, and I think they changed them almost every year for a while... I love it. Mine is still set up to play 78s, and that's what I collect (Blues & Hillbilly) and rotate in the machine.

    Wow, that looks like a nice original. I like the "flame" color cylinders. Kinda hypnotic.:eek: I've owned 3 of these beasts over the years. Congrats on a nice find.

    I just picked up an electric selector adapter to put into my Wurlitzer 800 so that I can connect a wallbox to it. Now, I have a 780 E juke that has the same electric selector, but the jukebox was basically built to have one of these selectors in it.

    What I'm wondering is if anyone knows how to mount the pin selector drum to the mech on the mechanical 800, and what the split sprocket attaches to on a mechanical selector machine. On the 780, it's on the same bar as all the selector fingers would normally be on, but on the 800 that actually has the mechanical selector fingers, I don't see any room to attach the split sprocket.

    I guess if you've been there, you will know what I'm talkin' about.

    Pics of Selector below.

    I have a question hopefully someone can help me w/ and I thought I'd bump this and see what else is out there.

    I just got an 1100 Wurlitzer and trying to change one of the long bulbs on the side and not wanting to tear anything up, thought I'd ask if someone could give me a pointer????

    Here's the 1955 Wurlitzer Model 1800 that resides near the soda fountain in The Hot Rod Grille garage. The remote selector wallbox on the middle of the counter and the wall speaker above the juke are hooked to it. I also have a Wurlitzer 1015-OMT with 45's in the corner that is hooked to the other wallbox closest to the wall. I still have the Seeburg V200 that I played as a kid that is awaiting restoration.

    I have the same thing. Funny story when I bought it, it was stored in a storage container for many years. The owner wanted $250.00 for it, it sounded like a good deal but I had no way of seeing if it worked/played because there was no electricity at the storage location. So I told him, I will give you 250 if it works and 100 if does not. So we loaded it up on my trailer and drove over to the convenience store across the street. We plug it in, nothing happen, the guy laugh and said, " you are the new owner of this juke box for 100 dollars that does not work". When I got it home, we push it into my garage and plug it in, and guess what it work. I call the guy back and said that I owe him another 150 dollars, he said to forget it and enjoy the machine.
