Launched in 1959, the Rock-Ola 1475 Tempo I 200 is one of two versions launched by the iconic jukebox manufacturer in that year. This model offers an impressive 200 selections from 100 records whereas its stablemate, 1468, only holds a modest 60 disks with 120 selections. It plays 45rpm singles and has a wonderful, rich quality to the sound.
Like all our vintage jukeboxes, 1475 has undergone a thorough restoration and is therefore in superb condition inside and out. As you might expect, she plays as well as she looks, and no one can deny that she looks stunning. The design of the Tempo 1 draws heavily on cars from the 1950s, with striking chrome fins extending outwards and a dramatic chrome ‘V’ dominating the front speaker panel, strongly evoking the classic Cadillac logo from the period.
As with most jukeboxes of the period, one can enjoy the theatre of watching the discs being selected from the carousel before being lightly placed on the turntable by a mechanical arm.
