A CM Stereo prototype that survived the great Austin Texas factory fire...
Here we have Paul Cortese newly purchased CM Stereo Console it has 2512C as the model, this is one your will not find online. Paul sent us some nice pics to share.
It has a Collaro Conquest turntable a very early 60s model.
It has the superb workmanship in the wood like all the early models of this era from Curtis Mathes.
This stereo is one of the Holy Grail for a Curtis Mathes Collector, looks like one of the famous missing prototypes that survived the great Austin Texas factory fire that destroyed most of the 1960 line of production.
You will not find this online, only a hand full every made it out of the factory. A few of these models got to the Showroom floors before the Austin fire ... and the were make with a great chassis, as you can see ...
