◄█exceptional Iconic Weltron Pop Art Spaceball- Am/fm Stereo 8tr All Work Nr█►:
Here for your consideration is an EXCEPTIONAL Iconic Fleetwood (Weltron) POP ART Spaceball with AM, Stereo FM and 8 track tape player like the one Austin Kutcher has on Two and a Half Men! What sets this one apart from the others you see on is everything on this one works!! When other sellers say „I don’t have any 8 tracks to test it.“ That means the player doesn’t work!! THIS 8 TRACK PLAYER WORKS! When other sellers say „ I didn’t try it on batteries.“, that means the battery box is all corroded, and won’t work! THIS SET WORKS ON BATTERIES OR 110VAC!! This Spaceball is an Ivory Fleetwood Model IT 1335 originally sold in Canada. It is identical to the Weltron 2001(25 Transistor and 13 Diodes) sold in the USA in the 1960s. These Ivory cases tended to yellow bad from sunlight exposure, and I’ve seen sellers trying to sell their very yellowed ones as Yellow- they are not. This one had been in my collection for over 25 year- out of the sunlight, so it is still a nice Ivory color with only slight yellowing. This 11“ diameter set stands 12“ tall. As I stated earlier, the 8 track player in these NEVER work. That is because the drive belt disintegrates and glues itself to the rollers. It is a dificult surgery to clean the rollers of the old belt and replace it with a new one. Ask my Tech friend Tom. It took him two hours to do the task on this one!! While he was there, he cleaned and oiled the capstan roller to give this set another long life. OK, see if anyone else says this about the Spaceball they are selling: AM plays well- picking up many stations across the dial. FM STEREO works well- picking up many stations across the dial. FM Stereo Indicator light WORKS. I forgot to pull it out in the pictures, but the antenna extends out 30“ for good FM listening. These are broken off on 90% of these sets sold on . Balance control Works, and gives good seperation Right to Left. Tone control works- Hi to Low. Volume control works- Min to Max. As I stated earlier, the 8 track player WORKS WELL, and I’ll include the Supertramp Breakfast in America tape with the set, but hopefully you have more 8 tracks to play. Now, others may state that their 8 track player works, but I suggest you ask some questions. This one plays well at correct speed with no drag. The four channel program button changes channels well AND all four track indicator lights work properly! As I stated earlier, this set works on AC or with batteries. The battery box in 95% of these sets is corroded beyond repair. This battery box had slight corrosion, but I cleaned it up, and the set plays great on 8 „D“ cells (not included). Just to cap this off, the battery level indicator meter on the front panel WORKS!! The handle works well, there are no cracks in the case. There are a few very minor nicks and scratches. It is over 50 years old. You could pull dents out of your car with the suction cup on the bottom of this set, so it will surely stay where you put it! This wonderfully designed set needs to be in all good Midcentury collections. I DARE YOU TO FIND A BETTER ONE!! Don’t miss this one!!
