Vintage Survivor 1961 Ami Continental 2 Jukebox Juke Box Coin Op Record Machine For SaleDescription
Have you been looking for that survivor quality 1961 AMI Continental 2 jukebox? This is a nice original survivor that is from a Midwest family. This machine was in their house for 40 years where we picked it up from. These machines are scarce, especially in this shape.
Please scroll down and enjoy the 70+ photos. If you cannot view all the photos, please click here. AMI came out with this machine in 1961 and is considered one of the most collectible machines AMI produced.
Mechanically, it does cycle but doesn't select the song. The wheel spins but never punches a selection. We can manually select a song and it will play. The amp sounds fairly good but probabl7y will need a rebuild from age and it needs a new needle most likely. We suspect the pulse convertor is probably why it doesn't select which is very common. Note the coin slug rejector is gone but these coin units are around as they fit from different more AMI models.
Cosmetically, it is a phenomenal survivor. The sides appear to be original although there is some discoloring as you can see. The patina is superb! The photos do a great job documenting the condition. We could not find any reproduction parts on this box. Note the phenomenal shape of the original grill, trim and dome. It even has the locks and keys for the cabinet.
In short, this is a phenomenal original and would make a great addition to the collection. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer jukebox for the money and when you look at the age. Best of all, there is . We will let the market determine the value on this RARE piece. Best of luck in the sale.
Because of it’s age and the above, it is sold strictly as-is-as shown. That being said, please see my response and offer with confidence. If you have not owned a jukebox before, these are not CD players, and being 50 years old can be temperamental and are not meant for continuous use all day long. These are meant for occasional use and not for continuous or bar usage. In addition, there are scrapes and scuffs on the box as you can see in the photos. The good news is that they reproduce most of the jukebox in the event of a problem, and there are many people that repair them. The most likely time of trouble is when they are moved. This example would make a great addition to anyone’s rec room, bar room, media room, or arcade.
