NOS late '60's Packard-Bell shelf stereo system

I found this late '60's Packard-Bell stereo in a warehouse; but, unfortunately, the box and speakers were ruined from water and rodent damage. Fortunately, the stereo itself was not harmed; so, I took the stereo and left the rest behind. Although not shown, I have the dustcover and the paperwork that came with the unit.

This looks like it will be a decent stereo and uses a Garrard 3000 record changer, fitted with a Tetrad ceramic cartridge.

I have not tested it; but, I'm sure it will need the same type of overhaul as one that's been in constant use would need.

Very nice looking set. Likely very good quality. Does it have a Pickering V 15 installed or a ceramic?

He said in the post that it had a tetrad ceramic cartridge installed, so probably not as high of quality as one might hope out of a unit that looks this nice.

I would love to find a 3000 series changer like that in bronze or black. But can that arm actually be fitted with a MM cartridge? I know the AT-6 can, but I thought that the 3000-series arm only accepted a ceramic cartridge.

The lighter tracking Tetrad ceramic was decent. Philco used their 2 gram tracking competitor to the Zenith/CBS Micro-Touch system in the Philco consoles in that era. Repaired a few such equipped Garrard 3000 changers, they were OK.
