Goodyear 749 (1938)

NEW!

Goodyear 749 (1938)

Goodyear Wings from 1938. I seldom use the word "rare" with old radios but in 30 years of collecting, I've never seen another one of these. The cabinet had been refinished with period correct toners and clear lacquer with new grille cloth. The seven-tube chassis has new capacitors, checked resistors, new dual output tubes, and power cord. The 8" speaker provides plenty of sound. 18"W x 10"H x 8"D.  $425.00. (1550031)

 

Grunow 470 Tombstone (1935)

Grunow 470 Tombstone (1935)

Small Grunow tombstone from 1935. The four-tube chassis has been restored with new capacitors, checked tubes and resistors, and alignment. The walnut and birch cabinet has been refinished with lacquer toner and semi-gloss clear. I believe it has the original grille cloth. Receives local stations well with long wire antenna. 14"H x 12"W x 7"D.  $225.00. (1550018)

 

Homemade Treasure Chest

NEW!

Homemade Treasure Chest

This is a homemade radio using a 1939 RCA model 9TX21 chassis and I'm guessing an old jewelry box. No dial scale, just a window with the original RCA pointer underneath. The chassis has been restored with new capacitors and checked resistors. Plays well with a long wire antenna. 10"W x 7"H x 7"D with lid closed.  $150.00. (1550033)

 

Homestead R44

Homestead R44

Painted Bakelite Homestead two-band. Plays very well on both bands, AM uses the internal loop and shortwave needs a long wire antenna. The six-tube chassis was restored with new capacitors, checked tubes and resistors, and alignment. The case has a crack on the lower left side of the front which was repaired before repainted. New grille cloth. 11"W x 8"H x 6"D.  $125.00. (1550016)

 

Philco 42KR3 (1942)

NEW!

Philco 42KR3 (1942)

This Philco was designed with a slightly curved bottom to match the top contour on the new 1942 Philco refrigerator. The wooden cabinet has been repainted, and has a new decal and dial lens. The chassis has new capacitors, checked tubes and resistors and plays very well with an internal loop antenna. 11"W x 7"H x 6"D.  $225.00. (1550035)

 

Philco 46-421

NEW!

Philco 46-421

This is as close to new that you may ever find a 1946 Philco. It was returned by an unhappy customer for a refund within a few weeks of purchase and left in the box until I bought it about 15 years ago from a retired Philco dealer. Original photofinish on cabinet with slight crazing on lacquer. The chassis has been serviced at some point, tube numbers are written in marker on the chassis and one tube is a Sylvania. All original capacitors. I replaced the broken end on the power cord. It still plays but should be recapped before use. Comes with original box and packing material. 14"W x 8"H x 7"D.  $225.00. (1550032)

 

Philco 60 Cathedral (1934)

Philco 60 Cathedral (1934)

Philco cathedral from 1934 with restored chassis and cabinet. Plays very well on long antenna with new capacitors, checked tubes and resistors, and alignment. Cabinet has been refinished with lacquer toners and a semi-gloss clear. New grille cloth and cloth cord. 16"H x 13"W x 9"D.  $250.00. (1550015)

 

RCA 40X54 (1939)

RCA 40X54 (1939)

Hard to find RCA treasure chest model from 1939. Cabinet has been refinished with toners and a hand rubbed semi-gloss lacquer. The rope handles, grille cloth and back plate are original but the glass dial lens is a reproduction. The five-tube chassis plays perfectly with new wax/paper capacitors, tested tubes and resistors, alignment and new power cord. I don't believe the painted Bakelite knobs are original to this model. Its a small radio, only 10"W x 6"H x 6"D.  $425.00. (1550008)

 

RCA 65X2 (1946)

RCA 65X2 (1946)

Repainted in a Lexus three-stage pearl white, this five-tube 1946 RCA has an iridescent metallic glow that is difficult for the camera to capture. The chassis has been restored by replacing all wax capacitors, checking tubes and resistors, new dial lamp, and an alignment for peak performance. Plays very well with its internal loop antenna behind a new back cover. 12"W x 7"H x 7"D.  $175.00. (1550027)

 

RCA R71 (1932)

RCA R71 (1932)

Very impressive RCA tombstone from 1932, restored to stunning condition. The eight-tube chassis is AM band only, has all new wax/paper capacitors and a new cloth power cord. All resistors were checked and replaced if necessary, and the set was aligned for peak performance. The original speaker cone has been modified, I assume to increase flexibility for sound improvement. The cabinet was refinished with lacquer toners and a semi-gloss clear then hand rubbed, and the grille cloth was replaced with a close original pattern. This is a very heavy radio to ship.  $550.00. (1550003)

 

Silvertone 6 (1952)

Silvertone 6 (1952)

Five-tube Bakelite radio from the 1952 Sears catalog. Originally white but repainted diamond white pearl with automotive three-stage paint giving it a pearlescent appearance. The color is 2002 Cadillac 800J. It's difficult for the camera to pick up the depth of the paint. The chassis has been restored with all new capacitors, dial lamp and power cord. Resistors, tubes and the alignment were checked. Plays great with internal loop antenna.  $220.00. (1550021)

 

Sonora RBU-175 (1946)

Sonora RBU-175 (1946)

This 1946 model five-tube Sonora was originally white but has been repainted in Saturn homecoming green using automotive basecoat/clearcoat paint. Its a great player after all wax capacitors were changed, tubes and resistors were checked and the dial lamp was replaced. Alignment was checked for peak performance. Local stations are received well with an internal loop antenna. 10"W x 7"H x 7"D.  $175.00. (1550030)

 

Trav-Ler 5061 (1950)

Trav-Ler 5061 (1950)

This five-tube Trav-Ler from 1950 still retains its original ivory paint. The chassis has been restored with new capacitors and dial lamp, tubes were checked and any out of tolerance resistors were replaced. Alignment was checked for peak performance and the power cord was replaced. Plays very well and receives local stations with an internal loop antenna. A lead in back is for an additional long wire antenna. 11"W x 7"H x 7"D.  $175.00. (1550026)
