An associate will facilitate the sale. This jukebox is considered the "holy grail" of jukeboxes.
This WURLITZER PEACOCK is fully restored. The cabinate was refinished, all plastics were buffed, new veneer in certain areas, rebuilt the mechanism, all the electronics rebuilt and all the castings were re-chromed. With that being said, one must keep in mind that this jukebox was manufactured in 1941. Therefore, there might be a minor issue that surfaces from time to time.
This jukebox along with others that I own are serviced at least once a year to keep them running in top form. You also have to keep in mind is the fact that jukeboxes do not like to be moved. Transporting a jukebox from one location to another might result in the jukebox needing some sort of re-calibration. In my experience, about 85% of the time the jukebox arrives in tip top shape ready to be played.About 15% of the time, It has to be fine tuned. The front door is made from 2 high quality woods with the upper part manufactured in blond veneer. Ninety-eight percent of the interior mechanics is original. This was the first jukebox to use an electronic selector.
It features a very large cabinate. The coin mech accepts 5 cents, 10 cents and 25 cents.
It presently set to free play. There are 2 short bubble tubes towards the center of the front door with illuminated plastics throughout.There are 2 motorized wheels behind the PEACOCK providing color animation so that it appears that every feather changes colors. It has a 24 play 78rpm record mechanism. It stands 66" tall, 39" wide and 27 deep. The jukebox weighs 410 lbs. In short, this jukebox is a collector's. It was a very difficult decision to sell this "masterpiece". This jukebox is expensive for sure but as the old saying goes" you get what you pay for" I hope it ends up in a good home.
