Default Murphy 146C "batwing"

Just spotted this in a charity shop in Leamington Spa (re-useful centre)
Good overall condition,but non functional.
I was tempted,but I don't have space,alas.

I can't find it.

All I see are pages about Covid precautions, climate change, volunteering and bicycles.

I agree.
A wasted mouse click without a lot number and auction date.

The link points to the shop, not the item. And it doesn't appear to be an auction house.

I think the points being made was that the link doesn't take you to pictures of the set just the seller.

It also doesn't tell you which of the Murphy floor standing "Baffle" sets it is (I dislike the term Batwing its not how Murphy described them)

There are three as far as I know the 146C OK but nothing special but good looking.

The 188C fantastic set amazing volume and performance loved this set.

The 272C a rather average set in a console cabinet but with VHF my least favourite.

20 years ago I owned all three I was only sad to see the 188C go.

So any prospective purchaser probably needs to know which one.

I have added some pic of the 3 models hopefully the OP can identify which it is.

Cheers

Thanks Mike for identifying the set,it's the first photo.
Action 21 is a charity shop that specialises in encouraging people to recycle rather than dump stuff.
I often pop into the shop to explore for goodies,and I was pleased to see this gem,as I remember my Aunt had one many moons ago.
I thought a local(WestMidlands) enthusiast might be interested?
