1950's Amplified Thorens Music Box With Disc For Ice Cream Good Humor Truck:
This listing is for a 1950's amplified Thorens music box. It appears to be complete and have good teeth. This was found in an old building and we have been told it was used on a 1950s ice cream truck like a Good Humor truck. The sound would carry through the neighborhood and since it was before common use of tape and since a record player would be difficult to use while driving, it makes perfect sense. I am told it would be powered by either 6 volt or 12 volt batteries depending on what vehicle it was made for . Please look at the pictures closely so that you are happy with your purchase. It has no cord and I have not attempted to do anything with it, so it will certainly need gone through before using.

I have been told this is probably from a Mr. Softee or mistersoftee truck. In 1956 they started using a speaker on the roof of their trucks that played a music box tune, and this is probably the unit used to do that.
