I have been running a radio repair & restoration business (Radio Revival) for twenty years.  I am the son of an old time Radio & TV repairman and grew up helping in the business.  I am still using a lot of his inventory.  Every radio that is saved from the land fill and put back to work is a piece of American History!  My collection has gotten out of hand and it is time to thin the herd and share the wealth.  Click here for my seller's terms and to learn about my restorations.

My Terms of Sale

Prices listed do not include shipping.  If you value the radio you just bought, please insure it.  I ship by USPS (my wife is a Postmaster!) and you will pay actual shipping costs to your location.  I do not charge for safe packing and handling.

I accept PayPal (preferred), personal checks, or money orders.  I will wait for checks to clear before shipping, otherwise I will ship as soon as I get your funds.  If you don't pay after five days, the radio will be relisted for sale again on the website.

I will ship to US addresses only unless a prior arrangement has been made.

Radios are as described and photographed.  Buyers are encouraged to ask any and all questions about my radios.  If the radio does not suit you upon arrival and use, I will accept a return within seven days.  It must be sent back in original packing and in the same condition that I sent it to you.  Buyers are responsible for return shipping and insurance costs.

I have been packing and shipping radios for twenty years.  Depending on weight and size, they will normally be wrapped in bubble wrap, boxed, placed in another box surrounded by peanuts at least 1"-2" on all sides.

Refinishing and Restoration

"Professionally refinished" in my descriptions means that I have had my radios refinished by refinishers that have been doing radios for me for many years.  The cabinets and knobs (if wood) have been stripped.  The cabinets are repaired and veneer replaced if needed.  The wood grain is filled, color matched as close to original as possible.  A matte or semi-gloss finish is used depending on the radios.  Original grille cloth is used if good, otherwise a older replacement or reproduction is used.  Dial covers are replaced if discolored or cracked.

"Electronically restored" in my descriptions means that I have checked all the tubes and lights and replaced them if needed.  I replace the filters, high voltage and audio capacitors, and out of tolerance resistors.  The controls are cleaned and lubricated or replaced if needed.  Speakers are repaired or re-coned if needed.  The cord and plug are checked for safety and replaced if needed.  I align the sets as well.  I do not restore or repaint the chassis or remove original parts mounted on it.  I repair radios for sale the exact way I repair them for customers that come in the door and for my collection as well.
