other than the replaced PT is this thing straight? and what is the ballpark for these with a replaced Transformer?

Back cover panel is a newer aftermarket replacement, all the original capacitors are gone (plus several resistors), IEC power receptacle (probably with the mounting hole hogged out), a few pots replaced, and also toggle switches. Not bad other than that. The box looks nice. I'd say it should be more like $17-1800.

Interesting that a '69 English-market amp would have a stand-up power transformer. I guess Marshalls just used up whatever they had available at the moment.

As the man said, all the original signal caps raped for whatever purpose :evil:
The electrolytics and the odd resistor typical for servicing, the switches and IEC for modern gigging, lamp is wrong and may have had the front panel opened out to fit it - a genuine replacement is pennies - if you can be bothered.

In the UK that would struggle to get several hundred pounds in this market.

If you're capable of doing the work maybe $1000. Then you can source original parts to replace the ones missing except for the PT which is hard to find. The amp is spoiled unfortunately.
