Interesting old amplifier FORD branded ONKYO
9 Attachment(s)
I just spend $20 at a deceased estate sale. It was a job lot of old amplifiers and such mine was the only offer/bid.
Amongst the amplifiers was this old ONKYO amplifier with a FORD logo.
opened up is is an ONKYO NCBC-094 main board
and a very strange arrangement of inputs.

Anybody tell me anything about it?
Is it worth anything to a Ford collector do you think?
I intend to list it on ebay whether working or not, the speaker selector switch is broken but don't know whether to start at 99cents of twenty dollars.
However any body from DIY audio can have it cheaper if they come and collect

It could as well be branded VW...or even Ferrari.

Isnt the Ford logo just pasted on the front panel with some glue..??...

Of course.
But brand collectors will collect "ANYTHING" with the logo on.
I still haven't even plugged it in to see if it powers up LOL
I am still going through some of the stuff I may want to keep. There were 5 amplifiers in this lot.
Also a Luxman T-1 tuner

I have sent it to eve el-bay and asking $20- for parts.
The Luxman tuner is nice but none of the amps are worth repairing or stripping for any parts except the heatsinks and trannies

My guess: Onkyo Integra 725.

This was clearly not official. You can even see where whoever did this scratched the markings off the back to hide the name.

Actually that was the owners ID.
Onkyo serial number is inside the case
It was the driving licence number and name of the deceased ( removed by the family ) all of the equipment was etched by the previous owner, this is the common practice here.
Whether it was a limited run done by a local dealership or a Ford sponsored product I do not know but the Ford logo sits exactly where the Onkyo logo usually sits in this model.
