Atwater Kent 84 Cathedral (1931)

NEW!

Atwater Kent 84 Cathedral (1931)

Beautiful large AK cathedral from early depression area. Very nice lighted dial, original knobs and grille cloth in great condition. In working order (older restore), but plays well with short wire antenna. The sides appear to possibly have been refinished, but nicely done and matches the great looking burl front which looks to be original finish. Cloth cord and just a nice example all over. 19"H x 15-1/2"W x 10"D. $429.00. (1640071)

 

Crosley 66TA "American Overseas" (1946)

NEW!

Crosley 66TA "American Overseas" (1946)

Excellent brown Bakelite (good mottling), two-band sis-tuber; no cracks, repairs or scratches. Large clear original dial and cover with original knobs and full factory back plus beautiful wrap-around grille areas. Recent restore and plays great. About 13"W x 9"H x 8"D. $199.00. (1640068)

 

Emerson AT-172 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

Emerson AT-172 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

I'm tempted to say "Let the pictures do the talking," but I'd better say a little something about this truly rare "humpback" Emerson in an obviously Ingraham cabinet. BC and SW both working. The radio has been professionally restored both electronically and cabinet wise. Even the correct decals were applied and really give it a complete look. It maintains the correct Emerson speaker as well. The chassis is rust free and is also in wonderful condition. The radio is designed with "Teledial" tuning along with a more standard knob control. Contained within is a six-tube super-het chassis that offers both Broadcast and Shortwave. The tele-dial has ten pre-sets, but those if used will have to be set for stations in your area. I will include paperwork instructions how to set... rather simple. Plays and displays unusually well and a really super specimen. About 19"W x 11"H x 10"D. Weighs approx. 16 lbs. $579.00. (1640057)

 

FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)

FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)

Here we have a beautiful yellow with red trim Catalin "Temple" with a timeless design. There were two variants, one with grille and this one without. I do believe this was a later issue. It maintains a beautiful shine and luster plus plays very, very well all across the dial. There are no cracks, repairs nor reproduction parts... all original except possibly the grille cloth. It has a full factory back and even has most of the two factory stickers on the bottom. Great looker and great player. $699.00. (1640062)

 

Fada 1000 Catalin "Bullet" (1945)

NEW!

Fada 1000 Catalin "Bullet" (1945)

Here is another very nice Catalin from my collection that screams of that industrial design of times long gone, but maintains its eye catching ability to be the focal point of most any decor. Hard to ignore something of this beauty even if it is the lone radio adorning a simple bookshelf or mantel. This beautiful maroon/wine colored with butterscotch trim is free from any cracks, scratches, or repairs has been electronically restored recently and plays clearly across the dial. No reproduction parts: all original. The only flaw as I see it, is obvious (cardboard back is only half, but the loop antenna is complete). Radio Daze dose sell a repro back if that is a concern. Super shiny, thus near impossible to take pics without the reflections (sorry). Complete and very nice factory label on bottom. One screw missing on bottom as is on most of these sets either because of the common shrinking or to alleviate the possibility of too much tightness which potentially could cause fractures. 10-1/4"w x 6"H x 5-1/2"D. $849.00. (1640070)

 

FADA 1000 Catalin "Bullet" (1946)

NEW!

FADA 1000 Catalin "Bullet" (1946)

Here is a true classic in that Deco industrial design from the 40's. The "Bullet" or sometimes called The Streamliner, is highly desired by collectors, particularly in these radiant colors of butterscotch with red trim. No cracks, repairs or repro parts; all parts are original, including the back with loop antenna. This one is straight from my personal collection. It is an older restore, but does work. Eye candy for most any collection. Excellent in every way. $879.00. (1640067)

 

Garod 6AU1 "Commander" (1946)

Garod 6AU1 "Commander" (1946)

Here's a gorgeous example of this streamlined artsy Catalin, model 6AU1, burgundy case with butterscotch handle, grille, and knobs. All parts are original, including full factory back. There are no reproduction parts; there are no cracks, repairs, nor stresses, nor major scratches. The perfect spring loaded handle works perfectly. Recently restored, with new caps, resistors where needed and plays very well. I would have to grade this one as at least a 9.5 out of 10. This is the way I found it and have had it displayed as "eye candy" in my collection for a few years. $899.00. (1640063)

 

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" Cathedral (1930)

NEW!

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" Cathedral (1930)

Here is a great specimen of that Art Deco West Coast manufactured Jackson Bell from the 30's. It is in great condition having been recently restored and plays very well. It maintains its beautiful contrasting wood tones, original knobs, speaker (Lansing), and likely grille cloth. It is a six-tuber, driven by a strong 45! It is ready for play & display. Straight from my collection to yours. Very nice! Rather small as cathedrals go at about 15"H x 13"W x 8"D. $729.00. (1640066)

 

Sparton 410 "Jr." Cathedral (1930)

NEW!

Sparton 410 "Jr." Cathedral (1930)

Unusual Sparton cathedral that seldom comes along for sale. Great styling with arched top, finials, fluted columns, and base molding and four original factory feet. It also has the original repwood grille and what appears to be original grille cloth. The cloth does a dark spot that may or may not show in pics; hardly worth mentioning, but it is there. Certainly not that detracting. I did not try to clean. This radio was manufactured in Jackson, Michigan by the Sparks-Withington Co. It is an older restore and does work with short wire antenna. It appears to be original finish. 19"H x 16"W x 10"D. $429.00. (1640069)

 

Stromberg-Carlson 61-T Tombstone (1935)

Stromberg-Carlson 61-T Tombstone (1935)

Beautiful pre-War tombstone by Stromberg-Carlson with its unique octagon dial (only Stromberg has). The dial is backlit with two pilot lights which really make it pop. This is a seven-tube, two-band radio. The cabinet shows very well with its factory two-toned finish and original grille cloth and factory knobs. The cloth shows minimal wear, but still nice. It is unrestored, but does play across the dial with a hum. Factory stickers are still on the inside of cabinet. About 19"H x 14-3/4"W x 10"D. $249.00. (1640064)

 

Zenith 6-S-439 (1940)

Zenith 6-S-439 (1940)

Another beautiful black dial Zenith tabletop, with awesome finish. Solid woods as well as two-toned veneer wrap-around which really accents this beauty. It is a pre-War working BC/SW radio from my personal collection. This is a six-tube Zenith in about as original as one can get, including, knobs, push-buttons, grille cloth, factory back, factory paper sticker on the bottom. The brass escutcheon has not been stripped or polished and maintains the near perfect patina. This is an older restore, but still plays strong across the lighted dial. About 15-3/4"W x 9-1/2"H x 8-3/4"D. $249.00. (1640065)

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.
