My Canonet smells

I bought a Canonet off eBay to find out how I felt about manual focusing a rangefinder. When it arrived I noticed it smells pretty horrible.

I've removed the old light seals completely and replaced them, so it's not the light seals that smell. I'm wondering exactly how to clean it, and where the smell is likely to be coming from. Anyone have any ideas?
