Click on any image below for a closer look.  All shipping costs are paid by the buyer.

All radios work when shipped unless ad states "not tested, or not working."  I will use USPS unless buyer has a preference.  PayPal or money order are the payment options.  I go to great lengths to make sure the set is operating fine when shipped.  If you have an issue, then contact me.  I will refund payment received, less shipping costs, if you are unhappy and the radio is returned.

My website has a little info about me, but basically radios have been a hobby since I was about 13, off and on.  I also volunteer for Maritime Historical Radio Society and repair receivers and transmitter equipment at the National Park Service, Bolinas and Pt. Reyes, California.  I do collect sets, but need to pare down.  I prefer "boat anchors" and have a number of very nice sets from the 1920's to 1960's.  I have a first class FCC license for various classes of equipment, but let it expire years ago.
 

 

Ballantine's Whisky Eight-Transistor Radio

Ballantine's Whisky Eight-Transistor Radio

A really nice novelty radio that works fine. These usually have the labels in poor condition; not this baby, it's grand. Label, "cap" and seal area very nice. Plays well. Uses four "AA" batteries (not included). Interior view shows it is clean and not corroded or water damaged. Add $12.50 for shipping to CONUS.  $80.00. (1400094)

 

Bendix 111 (1949)

Bendix 111 (1949)

This brown 1949 radio is stunning with a brass dial escutcheon. Bendix Aviation, as it was still called, made quality radios after WW2. I got this set already electrically overhauled and he made a new dial for it. I inspected the work, which was a quality job, and "tweaked" it a bit. Plays well, no hum, lighted dial, great Bakelite case, no cracks/chips. Original paper label on bottom, which I coated to preserve it.  $195.00. (1400096)

 

Crosley 51 (1925)

Crosley 51 (1925)

Crosley made a ton of inexpensive radios that worked well and had some clever cost cutting ideas. This little two-tube regen uses a pair of coils that slide together with a front panel control for the regenerative coupling. All connections are on the front. Batteries, antenna, ground, head phones. This one is in very nice condition with serial number tag under the lid, a pair of 201A tubes and original throughout. It is untested.  $185.00. (1400089)

 

Crosley VI (1923)

Crosley VI (1923)

Crosley made a ton of inexpensive radios that worked well and had some clever cost cutting ideas. This little two-tube regen uses a pair of "book" condensers for tuning. All hookups on the front panel for batteries, antenna, ground, headphones. This is in very good original condition with warranty card, serial number card, hookup diagrams in lid, Dept of Radio Engineering Approved tag on back. Untested.  $285.00. (1400090)

 

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

This is an unrestored Neutrodyne TRF six-tube set, vintage 1926. Missing two lower knobs and all tubes. Otherwise in good condition. Both tuners work. So crack out those 01A tubes and get her going! Nice sloped front. Heavy so shipping will reflect that. 19"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $75.00. (1400070)

 

Motorola C34G Clock Radio

Motorola C34G Clock Radio

Very nice condition set. Are you tired of all the fancy clock radios that are hard to set, shut off and operate? Want a pleasant journey back to the 60's? This baby is it. 12" long, sleek and a really good performer. All cleaned inside and out, clock lubed, radio checked, new tubes where needed. No hum and a good set.  $50.00. (1400091)

 

Stromberg-Carlson 1500H (1951)

NEW!

Stromberg-Carlson 1500H (1951)

Looks like the Philco "Hippo," but is not. S-C made quality radios and this is the same age as me! 1951. All tubes checked/replaced as needed, most capacitors and resistors replaced, new IF transformer, cleaned inside and out, tuning lubed. Case has no cracks or chips, no rodent damage inside. There is a little paint missing on a dial number, and I don't think the knobs are correct, but a lot better looking than the originals. Plays well and if you string out the included wire length for external antenna, does really well. Schematic and alignment data included. Original full paper label still on original back. Deal of a price!  $90.00. (1400098)
