Sun Test Equipment Wall Cabinet

We haven't run across one of these unique cabinets before, and decided to bring it on back with us.

The Diagnosis Cabinet was built around 1948-1951 and allowed the mechanic to tuck away their Sun Test equipment.  It came with a writing desk in the center and a top illuminated glass display.  We love the curved cast metal end caps.  Below is the original catalog ad from 1950.

This is not a small unit.  Measuring in at 13 feet wide, 17 inches deep, and 7 and a half feet tall.  Here is cabinet as found in its original mechanics garage.
