Ami 1961 Continental 2 Jukebox-jetson's Space Age & Absolutely Beautiful :
Here are two beautiful machines both were built in l961. Each one is a "leader of the pack" in their own field! The one that is up for sale is the AMI 1961 Continental 2 Stereo Round Sound Jukebox! I acquired this beautiful jukebox from a neat older couple in Oklahoma City that had owned it since l965 and they bought it from the original owner as an anniversary present to each other. When we purchased this jukebox from them it was only because they were downsizing. So I am the 3rd owner and decided to send the amp in and have it worked on. We sent it to Daniel J. Colabuno, who is an expert in jukebox restoration and repair. He rebuilt the power amplifier, reconfigured the power supply & modified for pre-amp conversion plus installed a solid state pre-amp. Daniel is well known in the jukebox world and does alot of work for the Blue Moon Jukebox Company. His labor was $325 & parts plus shipping was $453 with a total price of $778.50 (as shown in my pictured receipt). The sound is outstanding & amazing. This has the round sound stereo & can fill a room with music. We installed a new Pickering NP/AC mag. stereo pickup. The jukebox still operates on coins & works flawlessly. It takes a dime or 2 nickels for 1 play. A quarter gets you 3 plays and a half dollars will reward you with 7 plays! It comes with a thick manual and has the key also. The neat glass space age style bubbletop (flying saucer!) show the records being rotated, picked up and played. The chrome and paint on this jukebox are original and in very nice condition. My friend & Jukebox Tech (Dave) of 35 years has completely gone thru this machine and it is working 100%, from top to bottom!! The jukebox actually looks even better then my 12 pictures. This Jukebox will accent any game or theater room. These AMI Continental 2 Jukeboxes very seldom come up for sale as most collectors do not want to part with them and they were only made for 2 years (1961 & 1962). You will not be disappointed in the quality and condition of this machine. The manual comes with the machine and also 50 records. My wife may want to keep a few of the ones that are very special to her but we will replace the ones she wants to keep with others. SO, don't get rejected and loose out on this neat space age style Jukebox, to a couple of sock hop crazy dancing MONKEY'S!
