Assuming that my apparently dead 1970s Cuisinart food processor doesn't revive, is there anything I should get instead of the current version?

(I imagine I'd want the Pro Classic 7-cup.)

Be sure to work all of the repair options for your old Cuisinart. The materials of construction are significantly worse in new machines. And although repairability isn't a word it is something that is not designed into new machines.

I would definitely try to have it resurrected. It will be orders of magnitude better quality than new.
re size, I have the same size as yours and use it very infrequently since I acquired this Osterizer attachment that chops everything from meat to nuts in realistic quantities. It's much better than any of the stand alone mini food processors, simpler to use, wash and store. I have one at home, one in the country and have given a half dozen to friends who've lusted after mine.
It's not my circus,
not my monkeys.

This is going to sound like an incredibly stupid question, but how do you even find a food processor repairperson?

Fix the old. Still own a 1976 Vita Mix that works just as well as the 2014 model - and it was repaired some five years ago.

Really? Even if I almost never cook for more than one person?
Well, if you end up having to get a new one, yes.
It sounds like when you do cook, you often cook for more than one; it just gets eaten as leftovers, instead of at the time you prepared it.
But - fix the old one if poss.

Just get a commercial unit and forget about that annoyingly small food intake and flimsy construction.
