I do not have a way to test it and do not know if it works. One wire in the back is snipped so it would obviously need some restoration. The ORIGINAL interior components all seem to be present, which are very difficult to find. The core of the unit is clearly marked as a Motorola 7M on the side of the chassis and on the top circular piece (see 6th picture). The face place appears to have been altered because that part does not say Motorola on it.
The radio has some obvious cosmetic wear from age but is structurally well intact. Comes from a smoke-free home.
