Airline 62-715 (1939)

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.  $265.00. (1640039)

 

Crosley 124 "Playboy" Cathedral (1931)

Crosley 124 "Playboy" Cathedral (1931)

Here we have a large, beautiful original finish cathedral by Crosley. It is an eight-tube superhet, BC only, using a 24, two 27's, two 35's, an 80 rectifier, and two 47's for strong performance. Older restore, but plays very well, picking up many stations across he dial with only a short wire antenna. It has been in my collection for fiveor six years. All original except replacement new grille cloth which is era correct. A heavy radio; 17"H x 17"W x 11"D.  $395.00. (1640048)

 

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)

 

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.  $229.00. (1640003)

 

Majestic 461 (1933)

Majestic 461 (1933)

Here is a beautiful, original finish, chrome grille and hubcaps (escutcheons), correct original wooden square knobs. Known as the "Master Six," it has illuminated dial, six tubes, and tone control. Front panels are book-matched burl walnut. Really is a show piece and plays very well. Recently recapped and restored. Fluting sides and top. About 17"H x 13"W x 8"D.  $425.00. (1640045)

 

Motorola 59T2 (1939)

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)

 

Philco 89 (1934/35)

NEW!

Philco 89 (1934/35)

Here we have a very nice, recently restored Philco cathedral, model 89 which was probably Philco's longest lived model series (five total). As near as I can tell this is version #4 with the more ornate cabinet grille cut-outs which makes it a favorite to me. This is a single band, nice clean chassis that is ready for play / display. Also attached is the original factory warranty tag in good condition. About 16"H x 13"W x 9-1/2"D.  $265.00. (1640050)

 

Philco Jr. 80 Cathedral (1932)

Philco Jr. 80 Cathedral (1932)

Nice Philco Jr., model 80. It is an older restore that plays very well and shows well with the beautiful two-toned finish with proper toning. The Jr. was introduced in 1932 as a price leader in the industry. It was very aggressively priced at $18.75 which made it one of the least expensive on the market. Philco was accused of trying to start a price war, but as documented, was using it to lure customers into stores to help introduce more expensive models. Surprisingly, many, many Jr. units were sold. This one is a nice survivor and plays and displays very well.  $235.00. (1640049)

 

Stewart-Warner R-110-A (1934)

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 61-H (1935)

Stromberg-Carlson 61-H (1935)

Here we have a beautiful two-band, seven-tube, high quality and highly collectible, original finished Stromberg-Carlson with the lovely octagonal multi-colored lighted dial. Even the grille cloth is original as are the wooden knobs. Plays very well on both BC and SW. Direct from my personal collection and ready for play/display. Top shelf item; no flaws from my view. About 20"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $425.00. (1640046)

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.
