Maguire 500-D (New in Box) (1946)

Maguire 500-D (New in Box) (1946)

This one is for the true radio purist. A rare find. Packed at the factory 61 years ago & unopened until this year! Stored in a dry mold/smoke free environment it still retains its "new radio" smell-no kidding!! Ivory painted Bakelite cabinet with ivory Plaskon knobs. It would be a plain jane if not for that illuminated "bubble" dial with wonderful blue accenting. Nice back & bottom label. The original box, packing materials & sheet instructions are in superb condition as well. Electronics need servicing & can be for an additional fee. Additional photos available upon serious inquiry only. A beautiful radio with a unique history! 10"W x 5-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D.  $495.00. (0250167)

 

Zenith H615 (1951)

Zenith H615 (1951)

Eames era style in unpainted ivory Plaskon without cracks/chips but plenty of shine. Big bold glossy jet black Bakelite dial pointer/control knobs are excellent too! Neat gold diamond mesh metal grille sits on maroon grille cloth & is surrounded by an undamaged gold-tone dial scale. The top front center ruby "jewel" power indicator gives a nice glow! The top rib wrapped carry handle is sharp & undamaged. Comes with a nice original back & 90% bottom label. The six tube AM only chassis plays well. This beauty will be a standout in your collection or mid-century decor! 12-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D.  $265.00. (0250163)

Arvin 950T (1955)

Arvin 950T (1955)

Sharp angular Eames era cabinet is without cracks/chips! Though this glossy Bakelite cabinet appears jet black under all but the most intense direct light, it is actually a dark chocolate brown with subtle black swirling. The unpainted tan control knobs are excellent. The gold patterned foil center of the tuning dial is perfect! The station numerals & distinctive Arvin logo are crisp & complete! They sit nicely on a checkerboard cutout grille. The five tube AM only chassis plays well. Comes with the original Masonite back in great condition. 10"W x 6"H x 5"D. Very cool!!  $275.00.

Emerson 543 (1947)

Emerson 543 (1947)

This bright & glossy ivory Plaskon cabinet is without crack/chips or those stress lines common to Plaskon!

The spring loaded unpainted black Bakelite retractable handle & black control knobs are all excellent as is the dark red dial pointer that accents the overall look nicely. The five-tube AM only chassis plays well. The illuminated dial scale numerals are clean & crisp as is the Emerson logo. Nice original back cover.

The restored & exceptionally fine radios I offer are not intended to be at bargain prices.  The radios you see on my page represent multiple hours of my time making sure they perform & look their best.  Premium radios demand a premium price.  Nearly all radios I have are in the upper 5% of their cosmetic condition and from my personal collection.  I'm very particular & know few who go to the extent I do in performing a restoration.  My sales go to those who appreciate this fine detailed attention to restoration.  Many of my radio sales go to repeat customers who appreciate consistency and quality.  My prices are usually no more costly than what you would pay to purchase a radio as-is, then pay to have it properly restored.

When you purchase one of my restored radios you can count on it being "top shelf" and ready to "play & display!" Ask yourself these questions then decide if you are looking for low cost or a good value.
  • Do you expect an accurate radio description and clear photo representation?

  • Do you expect professional workmanship and good performance when you purchase a restored radio?

  • Do dust, grime and dirt on the inside of the cabinet and perhaps the outside disappoint you when you receive a "restored" radio?

  • Do you find chips, cracks or other damage not mentioned by the seller upsetting?

  • Does it matter that the knobs or other cosmetics might not be correct or original to the radio you purchase?

  • Do you expect your purchase to be packed well so it survives the rough handling of the shipping process?

If you answer yes, you'll like dealing with me.
