RCA Victor 45-EY-3 (1950)

This is a 1950 RCA VICTOR phonograph, model 45EY3 that I restored. I had to replace the Cam, Idler, Motor mounts, Turntable mounts, Needle cartridge. Checked all the Tubes, Recapped it, Painted the Deck and Lubricated it.
The record is the first 45 RPM ever released to the public on March 31,1949, it’s serial #48-0001. The A side is TEXARKANA BABY and the B side is BOUQUET OF ROSES, both huge #1 hits for EDDY ARNOLD.
