Atwater Kent 30

Atwater Kent 30

This is a beautiful AK model 30 and is fairly scarce. It is in great condition. This radio is untested but is so nice it probably works but is a battery operated radio and comes without the six 01A type tubes. The gloss you see on the radio is the original finish but it does have one very small amount of corrosion on the bottom of the face plate (see photos). Please email me for more pictures. I have priced this set very reasonably. It does come with my usual 30 day unconditional warranty.  $90.00. (1070096)

 

Atwater Kent 944 Cathedral (1934)

Atwater Kent 944 Cathedral (1934)

This beautiful AK is in original factory finish condition. It is 80 years old and looks great, nothing has been done to the cabinet. I have only dusted the cabinet. It still retains its original grille cloth and silk covered power cord and plug. I think it is a 9+ in appearance. It does have a few very minor blemishes and can send you photos of them on request. The electronics have been restored with all capacitors replaced as well as any resistors that were out of tolerance and with all the tubes tested and replaced as needed. This little beauty plays well and is very selective and sensitive for a four tube radio.  $325.00. (1070106)

 

Philco 38-5 (1938)

NEW!

Philco 38-5 (1938)

This is a very large round top radio. It is quite impressive as a collectable or decorative item. It is also unusual in that it has eight tubes and with the 8" speaker sounds great. The chassis has had my meticulous electronic restoration and plays like it just came from the factory in 1938. This radio also has a "shadow dial" that works and a gorgeous lighted dial with a brighter lighted dial pointer. The speaker is original as are the dial, knobs and escutcheon. All the tubes were tested and replaced with strong ones. The cabinet also has had my usual beautiful lacquer finishing with the nitrocellulose lacquer being polished every few coats. It took about a month to refinish the cabinet to make sure it was correct with the original. This is a big, heavy radio but I will pack it carefully. Don't forget that it comes with my usual unconditional warranty and will be insured for the full amount when shipped but you can pick it up if you want on the coast of Mississippi. Almost 22"H x 18"W x 12"D.  $699.00. (1070119)

Thomas BD-110 Replica Radio

Thomas BD-110 Replica Radio

Here is a a very nice Thomas reproduction radio; I think is from the 1970's/1980's. Both AM and FM work well and it comes with a free iPod connector. I have refinished the cabinet and it looks very nice. The grille cloth is not original and does have a few minor flaws. I have priced it to sell.  $75.00. (1070114)

 

Zenith 2614

NEW!

Zenith 2614

This Zenith is an AM/Broadcast only radio and is in amazing restored condition. I have outdone myself restoring this cabinet to wonderful luster with many hand rubbed coats of nitrocellulose lacquer that has a 3/4 gloss sheen. The AC/DC chassis has also had a ground up restoration including all the old paper capacitors replaced and any out of tolerance resistors also replaced. The tubes were tested and only strong tested tubes were installed. This radio plays great all across the AM/Broadcast band. The ivory knobs are original to this model radio, but if you want a pair of nice brown Bakelite to replace the ivory ones I will do that at no extra charge. I have made a new replacement clear dial cover, replaced the grille cloth and made a back cover to keep little hands and fingers from getting burned and a new electric plug was installed for safety. An iPod connector has been added for your convenience. I always double box and insure my radios so they arrive safely and give a 30 day unconditional warranty to its new owner. Shipping is a flat $25.00 and I pay for any overage shipping costs.  $325.00. (1070118)

"I received the Automatic clock radio yesterday. As usual it was well packaged, plays great, and the housing is excellent. Thanks." -- Dave
"William Skaggs of the Radio Attic has provided me with what I thought had been lost for good. Excellent sales and customer feedback on a recent Bendix tube radio purchase in which the set is far and away better in all ways than it even appeared on his site. A complete restoration of an old Zenith 8 tube A.M./F.M. that had problems only a highly trained professional could identify and fix . All this with constant communication and at a more than fair price, considerably less than other quotes providing less in the overall restoration. A highly recommended source for all your needs, can't say enough good things." -- David
"I received The RCA radio today, and It arrived in perfect condition. The radio is beautiful." -- Don
"The Crosley arrived today in perfect condition. Great looking radio and plays loud & clear." -- Don
