Description


An original Rockola Rocket Jukebox from 20th Century Props. Jukebox was originally bought from this Hollywood film prop company when they closed a couple of years ago. This Jukebox was used as a prop in films and television shows. This jukebox sports one of the coolest science fiction designs of the 1950s, as it is made to look like a robot, reminiscent of Robbie the Robot, or the Robot from Lost In Space. The Space Age is clearly the theme - having the name Rockola Rocket and featuring a Rocket Ship logo. These machines were set up to play either 78 rpm or 45 rpm records. It is probable that 45s were last played in this machine, as the record choice ‘play labels’ have bands like Johnny Cash and Three Dog Night- so this machine may have been used until the early 1970s. This machine would be graded as a 3 or 4 out of 10, as it has many flaws and imperfections; it is also untested mechanically. It needs a plain black plywood back cover; the thin center chrome strip on the front; and may need other little bits or replacement tubes etc. It is a great looking machine, beautiful when lit up, it's a real conversation piece.
