The entire input circuit would have to be rewired. This would not be the one to do it with. I'd reccommend the later one with the RP 190 changer over this one because the tone arm is much lighter.
You'd have to add more wires for the second channel, ditch the cut off switch, and, andd another shielded cable. Plus, a suitable stereo cartridge.
If you are planning on a higher powered amp, there could be other problems, as you might pick up hum from the unshielded motor, plust, No shielding for the cartridge, which could be added.

Not that age. That is a 1949 model.

Sorry, Ken. Not arguing with you. Yes, it could be converted, but, due to the weight of the metal tone arm, most cartridges would be destroyed by it. No all, mind you.

And, sorry Bill.
I've got a 45J, same as that model, and equipped with a Pickering magnetic cartridge tracking at a mere 4.5 grams.
Of course it's bridged for mono, use since those changers have too much rumble for listening in stereo.
But for casual enjoyment of 45's, it's fine.

And, sorry, repaair tech, but, I know someone who took an RP-190, and, completely wired it for stereo. No rumble.

It's amazing what you can do with an extra set of ball bearings properly placed, two new tires, and, proper greasing, lubrication.
