1949 Wurlitzer 1100 Restoration

Before                                                         After

 

resize01465.JPG     resize01751.JPG

This 1949 Wurlitzer 1100 jukebox sat in a basement in-operable for years. We replaced the entire lighting circuit, all the plastic, re-chromed the metal, replaced the wood veneer, finished the cabinet, rebuilt the mechanism and the electronics. This is a classic jukebox restoration

 


 

Jukebox Mechanism Restoration 

 

Jukebox mechanisms not having worked for years, may require extensive disassembly, cleaning, machining, plating and/or parts

resize01469.JPG  resize01596.JPG  resize01598.JPG

  • All jukebox mechanisms are completely disassembled by hand 
  • All metal parts are yellow zinc plated
  • All castings are chemically cleaned
  • We install new bearings even in areas the factory did not

 

resize01597.JPG  resize01601.JPG  resize01605.JPG

  • Assembly of the mechanism begins
  • Mechanism boards are refinished or replaced
  • Visible parts (like tone arm post and records tray parts) are re-chromed
  • We re-flock the turntable

Jukebox Cabinet Restoration

Rockola Jukebox Restoration

Jukebox cabinets are completely stripped


 

resize01463.JPG  resize01642.JPG  resize01646.JPG

Grand America Jukebox has tackled some of the most difficult problems with jukebox cabinets! Problem areas are cut out and replaced with solid wood, then the edges are tapered with filler and sanded to a smooth finish by hand


 

resize01652.JPG     resize01747.JPG

New hard wood veneer is applied by hand and molded to the cabinet making sure all edges are straight and solid. We then hand sand, stain and clear coat the outside of the cabinet. We paint the inside and back doors to the original factory colors


 

    1100Cabinet122resize.jpg  1100Cabinet222resize.jpg

Sometimes, the jukebox cabinets need much more. Just the base and top are all that was left of this Wurlitzer 1100 cabinet. We used the original wood as a template to make new sides. We repaired the base and refinished it


 

1100Cabinet33resize.jpg  1100Cabinet4resize.jpg  1100Cabinet5resize.jpg

We assembled the new sides and the original back then installed the original top to this Wurlitzer 1100. We applied new Walnut veneer and the cabinet is now ready for the paint booth.  Having been made much more structurally sound

 


 

Manufacturing Parts

 

 

resize01141.JPG  resize01312.JPG

In most cases Grand America Jukebox can re-engineer parts that may not be reproduced any longer. Previously, the buttons and marquee for this jukebox were nonexistent. Therefore, Grand America Jukebox manufactured the items

 


 

Jukebox Amplifier Restoration

Grand America Jukebox completely rebuilds jukebox amplifiers. A complete jukebox amplifier rebuild includes all new capacitors. On 1930's and 40's jukeboxes, the metal frame is repainted and correctly decaled

This Wurlitzer 600 jukebox was a complete restoration. The wood cabinet was stripped, repaired and re-veneered with Walnut. On Pre 1942 Wurlitzer models we are able to clean and polish the original pilaster plastics. Yes, the red, yellow and green plastics are the originals just polished. The Wurlitzer marquee, selection number and coin plastics are all brand new. We re-chromed all the castings, rebuilt the amplifier, restored the mechanism and detailed the entire machine. We have restored many Wurlitzer 600's

Before                                                     After 

 1015BeforeRightResize.jpg     1015RightAfterResize.JPG

This Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox really shows what we are capable of.  Almost any old jukebox can be restored. In fact, we have had some jukeboxes arrive to our shop in pieces and multiple boxes. This Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox underwent a full restoration. Every bit of the cabinet was taken apart and repaired, then re-veneered with Walnut veneer. New mirrors were in-laid into the side of the cabinet for a flush look. All new plastics and bubble tubes were installed. All the castings were re-chromed

 

Before                                                    After 

1015Open1Resize.jpg    resize1216.JPG

You can see here, the speaker fell off the door. This Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox was in rough shape! After rebuilding the cabinet, we installed new color wheels, animation motors, light bulbs and grill cloth

 

resize01217.JPG

  We repainted, decaled and rebuilt the amplifier, then added new tubes and wiring.  You can see here the speaker re-attached with new speaker bushings. All the metal parts on the interior have been sandblasted and repainted. Everything is highly detailed

Rock-ola Jukebox Restoration

1939 Rock-ola 39 Master Restoration

Before                                                       After

resize01139.JPG     resize01314.JPG

This Rock-ola 39 jukebox arrived in our shop as a pretty nice original to start with, even though it had sat neglected for many years. We completely restored it. We polished the original plastics, replace the wood veneer, refinish the cabinet, rebuild the mechanism and all electronics, and replace all wiring and lights. The original buttons were missing so we manufactured them

 


 

1948 Rock-ola 1428 Jukebox Restoration 

Before                                                  After  

1428BeforeLeftFrontresize.jpg     1428FrontAfterresize.jpg

 Many people believe the Rock-ola 1428 to be a Rock-ola version of the Wurlitzer model 1015. This Rockola 1428 jukebox was a fairly nice original to start with, however it was missing some parts. Most of the missing parts have been reproduced. We completely restored this jukebox. All new plastics, grill cloth, color wheel, animation motor and light bulbs. All the castings were re-chromed

 

 

1428FrontLeftAfterresize.jpg     1428FrontRightAfterresize.jpg

 Here you can see the extent of our cabinet refinishing. The cabinet on the Rock-ola 1428 is unique, in that it is not veneered like the Wurlitzer jukeboxes. The front door and mechanism board are metal. Only the side cabinet and back are made of wood. The factory finshed the cabinet in a decal that resembles a wood finsh, but these decals scratch and damage very easily. To restore the Rockola 1428 jukebox, we paint the entire cabinet to look like wood, resembling the original factory finish, but having much more durability. Yes, take a good look, that is all hand painted to look like wood

 

Before                                                After 

1428InsideBeforeresize.jpg     1428InsideAfterresize.jpg

Inside the Rock-ola 1428 jukebox before and after. The speaker, cash box, back door and a mechanism selector cover were missing. We replaced the cash box, back door, and mechanism cover with reproductions. We located an original speaker and had it re-coned. We rebuilt the mechanism and the amplifier. We replaced the jeweled back drop with a reproduction that was an exact copy of the original. You can see here how much detail work goes into one of our restorations

 

 

1428MechAfter.jpg

 The front glass was missing and the original plastics were cracked beyond repair. The NEW front glass has the original frosted pattern etched in it

We can fully restore your Rock-ola model 1428 for $12,000.00 est

1485LeftBeforeresize.jpg     1485RightAfterresize.jpg

This Rock-ola 1485 jukebox arrived in our shop missing the entire front glass dome. We quickly located an original from a similar model, and had it shipped to us for the "Before" photo

The 1960 Rock-ola Tempo II Jukebox is a great marriage of technology and vintage appeal.  It featured Stereo sound (having just been introduced a year earlier.)  And it still featured a viewable playing mechanism (something that disappeared just a couple of years after this model.)

The best of both worlds

We can fully restore your Rock-ola 1478 / 1485 jukeboxes for $10,000.00 est

Or, we can tune up your Rock-ola 1478 / 1485 for $3500.00 est

1951 Seeburg B Jukebox Restoration 

Before                                                After

BBefore1resize.jpg     BAfter1resize.jpg

Most 1950's Seeburg jukeboxes originally had a decal applied to the cabinet that resembled a wood finish. The original decal damages very easily so these jukebox cabinets are often found painted over. We cover the entire jukebox cabinet with wood veneer. This will show the original beauty and provide much more durability than the factory finish. We covered this Seeburg B jukebox with tiger strip teak wood veneer

 

BAfter2resize.jpg

 A Seeburg B jukebox after one of our complete restorations. The 45 rpm record was introduced in 1950. This Seeburg Select-o-matic B jukebox was the first Seeburg model to play 45rpm records. Note the 45 rpm decals on the glass dome

We can fully restore your Seeburg model B for $10,000.00 est

Or, we can partially restore your Seeburg B for around $3500.00 est
