Have 1974 RCA floor console Model VST230s3364.  Is it worth anything.........?


It is strictly a piece of sound equipment meaning no TV unfortunately,  Cabinet is in pretty good condition but needs some waxing.  Has record player, 8 track and AM/FM radio.  Do not know what to call cabinet,  think maybe traditional.  Front shows three arched panels.

    A lot depends on where you live... I mean it can't be shipped anywhere as that would be too expensive...but if you live in a larger metropolitan area it might be worth something as a piece of furniture...You'll have to contact local people about that and see whats available in your local area...and who might be interested.

    As a piece of furniture, depending on it's condition, it might be worth a few bucks.

    The audio gear in it, even if working, is very unlikely to be of interest to anyone. One can imagine someone using the cabinet, with crafted modifications, to hold some newer audio gear. But, that wouldn't be me.

    It’s worthless junk. 

    You have nothing to lose by trying to sell it on eBay as someone is often interested, but  potential buyers usually lose interest when they realise the shipping costs will far exceed the item value. But if you strike lucky it might be of interest as a non-functional set dressing for a period-piece TV show or movie shoot.

    The only real bit of potential interest to enthusiasts is the 8-track player, but that almost certainly no longer works as the rubber pinch roller by now has either turned to sticky goo or has gone further and the goo has turned to powder. Spare rollers and other parts are remanufactured for a very limited range of 8-track players but those tend to be for a few higher-grade automotive players.

    That’s not worth a painting of a whale and a dolphin getting it on

    Is this a TV, a stereo, or a TV/stereo combination? 


    What condition is it in? 


    Does it need electronic and/or mechanical service to be fully functional?   


    What is its furniture style (traditional, modern, Spanish, etc.) ? 


    Midcentury-modern style is quite popular these days, 

    with people rehabbing and restoring that type of architecture. 

    Many owners also furnish them to fit that era.   

    [See "Atomic Ranch" magazine for examples.]


    All those factors and others, too, 

    will figure into the potential value of your console.
