Introducing the Rock-Ola Tempo 1 120 Model 1468, a vintage beauty launched in 1959 by the renowned jukebox manufacturer. Among the two versions released that year, the 1468 stands out for its impeccable design and functionality. With 120 selections from 60 records, this jukebox offers a nostalgic journey to the golden era of jukeboxes.

Crafted with precision and attention to detail, the Tempo 1 is the epitome of 1950's automobile styling. Its chrome fins and distinctive chrome 'V' on the front speaker panel pay homage to the classic Cadillac emblem, embodying the spirit of an era defined by elegance and style.

This jukebox is not only visually striking but importantly also sounds incredible! Playing 45rpm singles, it delivers a rich, authentic sound quality that will transport you back in time. Witness the magic as the mechanical arm delicately selects a record from the carousel and places them on the turntable, adding to the overall theatrical experience that only listening to vinyl on a jukebox can create.

One of the interesting features of the 1959 Rock-Ola Tempo 1 is its eye level title strip assembly, unique in that it is organised by musical styles, allowing users to navigate through genres with ease. Simply press one of the top category buttons to illuminate an arrow, guiding you to the corresponding section of title strips for your chosen category.

At The Games Room Company, we take pride in our meticulous restoration process, ensuring that each jukebox, including this 1468, is brought back to superb condition both inside and out. With our expertise, this vintage masterpiece will not only look stunning but also perform flawlessly, promising endless hours of musical enjoyment.

All of our vintage products are sourced to order and restored in our workshops in Surrey by our talented in-house team. 

We offer a grade A1 restoration as standard. We do not use a 'restoration checklist' as every component is checked and refurbished as part of our uncompromising refurbishment process.

We are thorough and comprehensive throughout and are striving to deliver a machine that is near to how it came out of the factory. All of our restoration work is guaranteed by our one-year on-site parts and labour warranty. 

Music and Title Cards Pricing

Music itself is an important part of our business, as reflected by our treasured music library, so we are able to help you source and create the perfect playlists. If you’re a bit stuck for choice, we are only too happy to help!

The charge for vinyl records is £15 + VAT per record, this covers most records however some are highly collectable for which we have to pay a premium and are charged at a higher price. The title card service is £180 including VAT.

It is quite an involved process to supply records as we buy them in from dealers or collectors, they will only guarantee the "A" side, so often many records do not pass with us because we always supply records with playable "B" sides as well as the "A".

The centres are then cut (big hole centres) which also leads to some breakage as some of the records split due to their age. Finally they are hand washed and then played both "A" and "B" side on a gramophone for sound quality, only then are they fit to go on the Jukebox. The final check is again playing "A" and "B" side as you would hear it on your Jukebox.

It's all about delivering good quality sound for our clients and if you are investing in a vinyl jukebox the standard of the records have to demonstrate the high standard of our restorations.
