E.F. Johnson Messenger 123A CB radio

Dating from around 1975, this is a 23 channel radio, made in the United States, for the Citizens Band. I bought it from the local Goodwill store, during their monthly half price Saturday sale, and only paid $2.00 for it. I plugged it in and tested it, it works! It is going to need some TLC, but what else can you expect for a two dollar, forty year old radio?
