Frankenroid- Stitching together and resurrecting Polaroid one sale at a time! This is a super rare Polaroid camera. This Transparent 660 Sales Demonstration was manufactured in extremely low numbers and only for point of sale demonstrations.That means this camera was never intended for the general public and never offered for sale to the general public. Designed to be used at camera stores sales counters to demonstrate to customers how the 660 worked. What makes this particular 660 transparent model unique is Polaroid incorporated a solid body so the camera can actually be used to make photographs. The full transparent model cannot be used to make photographs because of light leak from the body, so Polaroid incorporated the solid body so the sales person could show off the internal mechanics while actually making photographs for customers to watch develop. Another rare aspect of this 660 Transparent is the lack of a name plate on the flash housing. This is intentional because behind the flash housing is a red LED that flashes when the photographer lightly presses the trigger. All 600 box cameras have this light but the faceplate and dark housing hide it. Because of the extremely low manufacturing number these 660 Transparent have become one of the most sought after instants. Transparent flash housing and face plate are unique to this particular model and. The 660 Transparent is a true head turner. People will stop to admire this camera and ask many questions. This beautiful 660 Transparent even allows you to attach a tripod for steady crisp clear images.
This Polaroid 660 Transparent Sales Demo Camera is in superb cosmetic and perfect operational condition. The rarity and the history behind it means this 660 Transparent Sales Demo Camera means it will only appreciate in value. This camera is one of the finest in my collection. It is worth every cent!
