Crosley 124 "Play Boy" Cathedral (1931)

Crosley 124 "Play Boy" Cathedral (1931)

Here's a classic early 1930s cathedral you can add to your collection. Radios with this type of iconic cathedral styling are the very identity of what "antique radio" means to many Americans. In the depths of the Great Depression, sales of Crosley and Philco cathedrals were one of the few signs of prosperity. This radio has an eight-tube superheterodyne chassis and has been fully restored to like-new operation with all new capacitors, a strong set of tubes, a new antique-style power cord, and a full RF and IF alignment. Its 8-inch speaker has been rebuilt and sounds great. The refinished cabinet will look sharp on display. 17-1/4"W x 17"H x 10-1/4"D.  $350.00. (1310058)

 

Heathkit AJ-31 FM Tuner (1962)

Heathkit AJ-31 FM Tuner (1962)

Are you looking to put together a vintage tube Hi-Fi system? This Heathkit FM tuner can be part of it. The five-tube chassis has three IF stages for good sensitivity. Two outputs are provided: one for mono, and one for an external stereo multiplex adaptor (not included). Restoration included replacement of electrolytic and paper capacitors, replacement of out-of-spec resistors, a new rectifier diode, and new dial lamps. A full RF and IF alignment was done with sweep generator, so performance is excellent, probably better than new (considering this was originally a kit). The front white bezel has a few scratches that are visible; otherwise the unit is cosmetically quite good. Relatively compact and light, so shipping will not be expensive. 13-1/2"W x 5"H x 6-1/2"D.  $95.00. (1310057)

 

Philco 46-1201 "Bing Crosby" Radio-Phono

NEW!

Philco 46-1201 "Bing Crosby" Radio-Phono

This is the Philco "record in slot" radio-phonograph known as the "Bing Crosby" because he featured in Philco's ads for this innovative product. To play a 10-inch or 12-inch 78rpm record, simply insert the record into the slot and close the door. The record starts and shuts off automatically -- it works like a charm. The attractive reverse painted glass dial is lighted. Both the radio and phonograph have been fully restored and work like new. All capacitors and out-of-tolerance resistors have been replaced. The radio has had a full RF/IF alignment, the tubes are strong, and a new polarized power cord has been installed. The unreliable mercury switch shut-off in the record player has been replaced with a microswitch, and the entire mechanism has been cleaned and lubricated. A replacement high-output cartridge has been installed, so sound quality and volume are good. The cabinet isn't perfect: blemishes in the photofinish have been colored to match the pattern, and a clear coat has been applied to keep it stable going forward. The sides have been repainted. Overall, it looks quite respectable. 16"W x 11-1/2"H x 14-3/4"D.  $395.00. (1310059)

 

RCA 6-RF-9 AM/FM (1953)

NEW!

RCA 6-RF-9 AM/FM (1953)

Here is the less-often-seen maple cabinet on this RCA AM/FM table radio -- much lighter in color than the more common mahogany cabinet. The big brass bezel is a striking example of 1950s styling. A well-designed radio with a nine-tube chassis, this set has outstanding FM sensitivity, and sounds great due to its 8-inch speaker, tone control, and 6V6 output stage. Chassis restoration included replacement of all paper and electrolytic capacitors, new resistors where needed, a strong set of tubes, installation of a fuse (for improved safety), a new polarized power cord, and a full RF/IF alignment with sweep generator for both AM and FM (hence the great performance). The transparent clear plastic dial ring is edge-lighted by two dial lights, providing a nice effect of illuminated dial numbers floating over a black background. The back is original, and this radio has a factory phono input which works perfectly with an iPod if you'd rather listen to your own program material. 17"W x 10-1/2"H x 9"D.  $350.00. (1310060)

Shipping overseas is possible, but the customer must be willing to pay for shipping services with delivery verification and insurance. All radios are shipped double boxed, insured, with delivery verification.

  • A packing charge of not more than $10 may apply. In many cases, I will have suitable packing materials and boxes available free of charge. If I don't have suitable materials, then I will ask the buyer to pay the actual cost for boxes and packing materials, up to a maximum of $10.

  • All radios and televisions are electrically restored by me. I have many years experience and have restored hundreds of vintage radios, TVs, phonographs, and stereos. If your radio or TV arrives dead or fails within the first 60 days of normal use (and no internal modifications made by the buyer), I will repair for free. Shipping costs for U.S. and Canadian customers for repairs in the first 60 days are split (you pay for shipping to me, I pay for return shipping to you). After 60 days, normal repair and shipping fees (both ways) will apply, although my charges are very reasonable. For customers outside the U.S. and Canada, the customer must pay shipping both ways for repairs, even for those within the first 60 days.

  • If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will do my very best to make things right.
