Airline 62-486 (1937)

Airline 62-486 (1937)

Awesome two-band Airline waterfall with slight wrap-around design with Deco flair. Totally original finish and what appears to be original grille cloth as well. This is a battery set that plays very, very well off a power supply built from an old computer power supply. Look at the brightness of the eye tube which works very, very well as it should. Eye tube is rather rare for a battery set. This is a true classic all the way around and plays great on both BC and SW bands. Notice it still has complete factory sticker in top inside of cabinet and factory inspection cardboard tag attached. Extremely nice. Play/display from my collection to yours. Thanks for looking.  $299.00. (1640019)

 

Airline 62-715 (1939)

NEW!

ON SALE
until
December 17

Airline 62-715 (1939)

Very neat and unusual tabletop/tombstone radio with unusual cylindrical dial and thumbwheel tuning. This set is an older restore as it has been in my personal collection for a few years. Preset push buttons work, but would have to be reset for your local stations. Strong green tuning eye as well. Strong player. Three things that may be considered as flaws: 1) small stress in clear dial cover, which clearly shows but does not detract; 2) approx. 3-1/2" stress in veneer on left front which I have tried to show in photo, (since it is original finish, I have elected to not fix accordingly. It actually follows the grain); 3) although I call it all original finish, the top may have been refinished at one time; cannot say for sure but wanted to point it out. Overall a great radio and seldom seen. It also has the original factory sticker on the inside of cabinet. 16"W x 14-1/2"H x 9"D; weighs about 18 pounds.  Was $265.00, now $225.00. (1640039)

 

American Bosch 640 (1936)

ON SALE
until
December 17

American Bosch 640 (1936)

Here is a very nice, clean, recently restored deco American Bosch with factory tags. This is a two-band, six-tube, low profile 1936 model that plays well on both bands with short antenna wire. Of course, most short-wave is evenings nowadays. The back lighted tri-colored dial shows so well and the vibrant colors and red pointer really make it "pop;" pics don't do it justice, but the pics should be considered as part of the description. About 19"W x 9-1/2"H x 8"D.  Was $235.00, now $199.00. (1640016)

 

Arvin 441-T "Hopalong" (1950)

Arvin 441-T "Hopalong" (1950)

Great old radio in working order. Includes a Hoppy Comic Book in wonderful condition, a hard back book from 1943 in very good condition and all pages, and a good legible operating booklet (repro) to help complete this wonderful collectible from days long gone. Please see the last photo for the extras that compliment the working Hoppy radio. It has the original back. The paint is in overall very good condition with very few imperfections that should show in pics.  $495.00. (1640005)

 

Bendix 526C Catalin (1946)

Bendix 526C Catalin (1946)

I am offering a great looking green and yellow marbled Catalin at a cheaper than normal price as this radio is not working. It does light up, but hums. If you can work on or know a tech, this would be a good one to buy. Optionally, I can re-cap it and service for an additional $75. I can get it playing and guarantee it, but if you like to work on 'em I'm sure you can do it cheaper. As you can see in the chassis photo it has not been mucked with as evidenced by all the old original wax caps, etc. This beautiful cabinet is free of any breaks, repairs, etc. Thanks.  $575.00. (1640036)

 

Clinton 135 (1935)

Clinton 135 (1935)

Beautiful inlaid two-toned wood small set. It is a four tuber, older restore, working as it should with attached antenna. It is outstanding in that the factory wooden knobs are detailed to match the great looking cabinet. I have never seen this particular set, but believe it was likely made along with or by Climax in one of those Chicago Factory A or Factory B in early 30's. Model is really not known for sure, but the Serial number is B11254 on factory attached tag. Only weighs 6 lbs., 10"W x 8-1/2"H x 6"D.  $245.00. (1640028)

Emerson 157 "Clockette" (1937)

Here is an A-1 specimen of a somewhat hard to find bi-colored (Ivory Plaskon and Black Bakelite) Emerson "Clockette" with NO repairs nor cracks nor scratches; near perfect case. The case is actually three pieces. Plaskon front, Bakelite back and top. Even the little red lighted jewel works. Original factory knobs.

Emerson AW-55 (1932)

ON SALE
until
December 17

Emerson AW-55 (1932)

Here is a very unusual trapezoidal shaped, Emerson. I cannot find in any of the books, thus must be rare and not even 100 per cent of model and year? It has all the factory brass tags and has been recently restored by previous owner. It does play well with the attached antenna. It is not perfect, but quite a conversation piece because of the shape alone. The back appears to have been home made, but looks good and does serve the purpose as you can see. Please reference all the pics, and consider them as part of any description that I may have left out.  Was $189.00, now $159.00. (1640035)

ON SALE
until

FADA 209 (1941)

Beautiful Deco, small FADA Bakelite table set with pumpkin Catalin handle. No cracks nor repairs and plays very well. Factory back with factory prints. These normally came out with no handle or with a tortoise shell one. This is only the second one I've seen with Catalin. Like other parts during this era, the factories simply used what was available to them. Plug and play. Small at about 10"W x 6"H x 4"D.  Was $169.00, now $139.00. (1640021)

 

General Electric C422 (Canada, 1940)

General Electric C422 (Canada, 1940)

Here is an excellent small beetle plastic CGE, model C422. It plays well; it is a one-band, five-tube with factory back in excellent condition as well as factory tag on bottom. There are three extremely fine and difficult to find stresses. I almost missed two of the three myself. This is fairly common with this material, but usually blend as in this case. I have tried to show in pics, but they are so fine it is difficult, and probably won't show just wanted to mention. One is near the left knob and you must look very closely. The other is in pic #4 and is also difficult to see, but it is in the very middle of the case left end. You can barely feel with fingernail. Great little GE (made in Canada). Great play/display. 9"W x 6"H x 5"D.  $159.00. (1640034)

 

General Electric K-51-P (1933)

ON SALE
until
December 17

General Electric K-51-P (1933)

What an awesome set. Very unusual Deco design with Repwood doors depicting Christopher Columbus. This should be in a museum somewhere, I suspect. The doors open and slide inside the cabinet revealing an awesome radio with original grille cloth, knobs, etc. Actually the radio is all original, including finish. It truly is a unique and awesome piece. Plays very, very well. All my radios are from a smoke-free home.  Was $495.00, now $339.00. (1640011)

 

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Absolutely gorgeous and seldom seen 1942 Gilfillan tombstone with original finish including the top and bottom photo-finished bands. Although the photo doesn't show, the eye tube works correctly and is very green (not the blue tint as shown) and opens/closes as it should. It is really eye-catching and really makes the radio "pop." The switch on the side is factory, but no idea as to the function. Notice the original factory "Gilfillan" tag between knobs and factory wooden back. The original clear dial cover has slight separation in corner, but hardly noticeable but did want to point it out. It has recently been capped and all tubes, etc., checked/replaced where needed. Great sound and volume. Six tubes and two bands. Nice addition to most/all collections. Plug and play/display.  $275.00. (1640003)

 

Motorola 5T12B (1959)

NEW!

Motorola 5T12B (1959)

Very clean inside and outside and ready for play/display. Plays very well receiving many stations. Very unusual steering wheel knobs. The on/off/volume control is push/pull for on/off, very cool. Also vivid silver Motorola logo on top plus full factory tag on bottom as well as a silver "kick stand" foot in rear. Hardly worth mentioning, but there is a extremely small hardly noticeable "chigger bite" on the right hand side edged; may not even show in pics, but wanted to mention anyway. Cannot even measure it is so small. This set only weighs a couple of lbs. and is 12"W x 7"H x 4"D.  $139.00. (1640041)

 

Motorola 59T2 (1939)

NEW!

Motorola 59T2 (1939)

Here is a rather rare, completely restored Motorola 1939 World's Fair five-tuber. Really a neat, compact, clean and ready to play/display jewel. Beautiful lighted convex dial that works very well. All pushbuttons work well. but need to be preset for your area's stations needless to say. Really neat thumbwheel dialing that also works well. It is small at 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D and weighs only 10 pounds.   $229.00. (1640042)

 

Motorola 79XM21 (1949)

Motorola 79XM21 (1949)

Here is a radically designed and very collectible "mod" looking mid-century AM/FM Bakelite/chrome accented by those factory red knobs. Plays strong on both bands.

Stewart-Warner R-110-A (1934)

This is the largest and finest tombstone radio made by Stewart-Warner. The radio is ten-tube count model and it is designed as a three-band receiver. You seriously don't see this model for sale very often. This particular one is rather stunning with the original factory finish with new grille cloth which is era correct. Factory tags are mostly intact on chassis. The radio is an outstanding playing set, with great volume and a highly selective tuner and just recently restored with new caps, etc. 17-1/4"H x 15-1/2"W x 12-1/2"D.  $429.00. (1640043)

 

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

Beautiful little two-toned wood, mostly original finish with the normal scuffs for a 78 year old radio. Look closely at all the fluting and step down top which water-falls down the front. Recently restored with all tubes and caps replaced as needed. Plays very well all across the dial. Nice lighted dial as well. Weighs approx. Very clean and rust-free chassis as you can plainly see. Really a nice and seldom seen S-W. 12-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D; weighs about 11 pounds.  $235.00. (1640026)

 

Stromberg-Carlson 130-H (1936)

Stromberg-Carlson 130-H (1936)

This is a complete recent restore. A fine example of how Stromberg was built for performance as well as beauty. This is a very strong playing three-band (BC & SW & Police which is now defunct). Absolutely gorgeous lighted tri-colored dial as you should be able to see in pics. The knobs are original and the crinkle painted chassis even shines & rust free. It is 20"W x 11-1/2"H x 10"D and weighs 20 lbs., so shipping will not be cheap.  $435.00. (1640029)

Truetone D-725 (1936)

Here is a beautiful wood Truetone with large black dial and tri-colored lettering. Gorgeous when lit. Plays on both SW and BC when attached antenna extended.

Zenith 5-R-337 Chairside (1939)

Zenith 5-R-337 Chairside (1939)

Here is an excellent small Zenith Chairside with attached magazine rack. Near perfect and plays well. The preset buttons are factory, but would need to be changed for your local stations. Chassis is very clean and the factory sticker is still intact. This is a small five-tube set and is only about 17-3/4"W x 21"H x 11-3/4"D and weighs only 22 pounds, so shipping should not be a problem. I cannot tell for sure if it is original finish, but if it not it is a great refinish job. Great little radio.  $335.00. (1640038)

Tom's Terms:

Goal: My intent is to sell quality radios that are clean and complete, and in nearly all cases working.  I try my best to accurately describe my radios and provide close up, clear photographs to show any defects if present.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.  If they came from my personal collection, chances are they are either "recent restores," "older restores," "unrestored but working," or "unrestored & not working," all of which I will make notation in my descriptions.  Also, pictures should be considered as part of the description.  Very few radios are museum quality and very old, so they are not perfect.  Of course, beauty or perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, but I am picky myself.  Having said that, I think my prices reflect the rarity, condition, quality, completeness, etc.  I want satisfied customers so they will become return customers and even tell other collectors about me and my radios.  Although selling for $$ is important, this is still and always be a hobby for me.  Saving radios from the dumpster, bringing them back to life, collecting, and in this case putting them up for adoption is more fun than the law should allow.  Please ask questions before we make a deal.

Packing and shipping: Prices listed do not include shipping or insurance costs.  Unforeseeable things can happen in shipping and given fragile nature of antique electronics, I am not responsible for shipping damages.  I prefer sending through UPS, but USPS and FedEx are also available.  I strive to get the radio to you in the same condition as it left here.  Proper packing is important.  I personally package all radios and use plenty of packing material to make sure it gets to you safely.  This may cost more and take more time, but it's worth it to get the radio to you safely.  Also, I insure all radios in case there is damage or it gets lost in shipping.  This is not my first rodeo for packing & shipping.

Payment: Once a buyer agrees to purchase a radio through email, I will hold for five days until payment is received.  If still unpaid after five days, the radio is once again for sale to other viewers on the website.

1) Money Order or Bank Cashiers Check.
2) PayPal funded from your checking account or PayPal balance only.  No credit card payments.
3) Personal checks (must clear prior to shipping; usually 5-7 working days).
4) Cash (in-person local pickup only)

Returns:  I want you to be satisfied with your radio.  I will take returns, but these conditions must be met.  You must contact me before returning it, and it must be shipped within four days after you receive it.  It must be returned as packed and arrive in the same condition as I sent it, thus please hang onto all packing.  Return postage is at your expense and shipping charges are not refunded.  Once I receive the radio back in good condition, I will refund your money.

Note:  I will not ship outside the CONUS. Sorry, Lower 48 only.  I will not ship to P.O. boxes.
