That would depend upon what you know about its condition. Does it work? Or is it a core?

Hooked up antenna and speaker, works good light works, changes stations all knobs work, 8 track changes tracks but got no sound.

Here is a general idea of retail although I have seen them go for much less and much more on ebay.

Remove the top lid and check for the belt being broken. No sound unless the tape is moving.

Just pulled the cover off, the belt was dried and broke, put a rubber band on and the 8 track works pretty good, drags just a little but I bet with an original belt and cleaning the head ect... it will work great. Sell here for $300. plus the ride.

Those are not correct. The AM/ 8 track uses the same knobs as any other '67 Cougar radio would.
