For sale, Kuba tv/record player/ world band radio system. Before replying to this ad, I suggest you take some time and research this very unique and rare piece of history. The tv and top speakers are gone but everything else is original. The sail is in good shape finish wise and the tv glass is in place. The base unit lights u when plugged in but I have tried nothing further. There are some cracks in the lacquer but is in overall good shape. I'm looking for something over $1000 us and if you did your research, you will agree thats a resonable price. This will make a great focal point to any retro style living space.
