Arvin 65RO3-1 Pocket Transistor (1967)
Very pretty Arvin seven-transistor radio in bright red. Perfect crack-free cabinet. Near perfect condition and working very well with 9-volt battery banana clipped in. Takes "206" battery, therefore will need buyer to tack in a modern 9 volt for daily operation. Or purchase a 206 battery @ $20.
Bendix 526MC Catalin (1946)
Posted is a perfect Emerald Green Catalin Bendix. No Cracks, no Chips, nice sharp edges with beautiful green/yellow swirl. Chassis has been serviced and hauls in the stations with great clarity and rich, room filling sound. Has original back also. A true classic. I've had it in my collection for about 20 years. I will send more photos upon request.
Motorola 5J2U "Jewel Box" Portable (1951)
Posted is a seldom seen Motorola portable with a beautiful swirled Jade green, Chinese influenced grille. Portables of this design always have cracks in the cabinet in and around the hinge area. However there are none to found on this set anywhere. Replaced Selenium rectifier with heavy duty modern diode and paper caps. Gave radio a tune up on the IF's and now has loads of sensitivity and room filling sound. Beautiful matching swirled Jade green knobs.
restoration philosophy has been to leave these classic radios in
their original condition as much as possible. I prefer not to
refinish or repaint a set unless it's absolutely necessary. When
this is necessary, I use a professional person for refinishing &
repainting. I have always tried to obtain the nicest original sets
and although some may not be working, they will be a clean platform
in which to begin a solid restoration. Radios will be listed as
working originals, working electrically restored or non working
originals, "as is." Any repairs that have been made, and any
cosmetic flaws associated with the radio, are completely disclosed.
I have been collecting radios since getting out of college in 1986.
I have a fairly vast collection spanning all eras of radio
evolution. Please contact me for any "wants" that you may
have; I may have it! Thank you.
All radios are tested to make sure they are playing prior to
shipping. A lot of jostling in shipping can make tubes loose and
connections become unconnected. These are some of the unforeseen
results associated with shipping. I have no control over how the
shipper treats the package. If you purchase a radio and it is not
working and playing when you receive it, I will offer several
suggestions to help it work. If those suggestions don't solve the
problem, you are welcome to ship it back to me for any repairs that
are necessary. The radio will be shipped back to you at my expense,
or your purchase price will be completely refunded if the set can't
I want you happy with any radio you purchase from me. If for
any reason, you are not satisfied with the radio you bought in the
condition stated in the original ad, please contact me within three
(3) working days to begin discussing any issues you have.
I pride myself as a "quality" packer and realize the importance of
delivering the radio to the customer without damage. We probably all
experienced the eBay radio purchase where upon opening a single
flimsy box with marginal to no packing material and find a broken
radio we couldn't wait for.
