Kind of looks like it could be a similar design to my Sansui 1000A

Or even more like the Sansui 500, I think. Also quite similar to the Japanese-made Radio Shack and Lafayette receivers of the mid-1960s.
One may peruse the former at www.radioshackcatalogs.com (look around 1964 to 1966). Some of the Lafayettes of that timeframe were made by Kenwood (TRIO); others... who knows?
I think some of the inexpensive Japanese receivers of the mid-1960s may have been made by Rotel/Martel.
Nice pickup for five smackers; it will need some attention "for best results"
EDIT: ooh, yeah! Take a look at the Radio Shack "Realistic" branded STA-30 receiver on page 9 of http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/catalogs/1966/ I think that's the same receiver with a different name on it; what do you think?

Now that's a nice score. I often think about scouring such places in case I get lucky
