eBay watch: Giant Coca Cola can hi-fi system

Not as old as most things we feature in this spot, but you can see why we are flagging up this giant Coca Cola can hi-fi system – and that’s before we get to the current modest price.

It probably dates from the late 1980s (the seller says ‘very 80s’, a giant Coca Cola can housing what used to be called a music centre, hi-fi system or stacking stereo. You know the kind of thing. Oh yes, the speakers are also built into the sides.

Close the door and it looks like a huge can. Open it up and play your music. Or some of your music, at least. There is a small problem with this, the CD drawer not opening. The seller claims it is ‘easily fixed’, but you can make your own mind up on that. Until it is, you’ll have to make do with digging out your old cassettes and playing them or sticking the radio on.

It comes with a remote (which might need some attention) and the original booklet. How much? Right now it is £2.20 with five days to go.
