It's a nice example, in great shape, and certainly complete, but it won't be particularly spectacular in performance. It's part of a long series of radios, all built on the same basic theme, and none were outstanding.
But they show well.
I sold them, and their brethren, at the Duty Free Shop in Montreal. This one sold in 1969, and the military-style radios were right around the corner ...

I feel bad for the original owner; all that time and effort for layaway and the radio just sat in a closet..

I have the similar-looking TFM-8000w, in working order but in need of restoration. Anybody know someone who works on these?

I'm not a fan of "new in box" vintage radios. Usually, they end up costing much, much more than a great used working example without the box. So if you spend crazy money for this radio and you actually use it----you immediately devalue it significantly as it becomes "used" instead of never used. If you buy it to stare at it, you've probably paid too much----it goes from their closet to yours.
