'50's Olympic consolette AM radio/record player

Yesterday, a friend found this circa 1957 Olympic AM radio/record player at a flea market for $20 and after calling to see if I wanted it, he brought it to me. The chassis is basically a glorified AA5-tube chassis; but, at least is had more than just a single 5" speaker and it has an EQ switch on the control panel for LP and 78 playback. The most interesting thing about it is the Admiral record changer. Over the years, I've not seen many of these and the ones I saw were in Admiral products. Very rarely do these turn up in other brands.
