Lionel 195 (1936)

NEW!

Lionel 195 (1936)

Lionel Train fans take note, here's a Lionel brand radio! Now it's a mystery if the radio actually had anything to do with the train manufacturer, but it remains a rare brand nonetheless. This is the first one like it to appear on Radio Attic. The chassis was made in Chicago, at "Plant A" and was used in several different sets. For reference, it uses a Clinton model 195 schematic. It's a neat little four-tube plus ballast TRF set that receives AM & shortwave. Without AVC, the louder you turn up the volume, the stronger the stations come in. That said it plays well across the AM dial with an external antenna attached. Short wave needs a much longer antenna. The chassis has new filter and paper capacitors, tubes all tested good. Tube sockets cleaned as was the volume control. Tuner was cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. Nice proper cloth line cord. Cabinet was completely refinished using spray toners with some minor wood blemishes remaining. New grille cloth. Original wood back cover! Compact at 10-3/4"W x 8"H x 6-3/4"D. $279.00. (1790042)

 

Musimeter 636X (1946)

NEW!

Musimeter 636X (1946)

Uses a Bendix model 636 chassis, this AM Musimeter brand was originally a coin operated hotel room radio. The coin mechanism is long gone, and the coin slot was plugged, but it remains a very stylish, well performing set with its built in loop antenna. It receives all the local AM stations and sounds good with a three-position tone control. There is an RCA jack in the back where an external audio source can be plugged in. The chassis was gone through with new filter and paper capacitors, tubes all tested good. Tube sockets cleaned as was the volume control. Tuner was cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. New polarized line cord. Cabinet was completely refinished using spray toners with some minor cabinet blemishes remaining. New grille cloth. New back cover. 15-1/2"W x 9-1/4"H x 9-3/4"D. $129.00. (1790041)

 

Silvertone 4640 (1937)

NEW!

Silvertone 4640 (1937)

This rare "farm radio" is the first one ever offered on Radio Attic! Marketed to rural areas, it was originally powered by a 6 volt car battery! To bring it up to date, a full AC power supply was hand built from scratch just for this set. It now plugs into any wall outlet just as any modern radio would without compromising the original vibrator supply. Have over 150 dollars invested in the power supply alone. It plays as good as it looks. Receives all the local AM stations (plus Short Wave and the old Police Band) with an attached long wire antenna. With 1V tubes, it plays as soon as you turn it on, no warm up time! The chassis was gone through with new filter & paper capacitors. All seven tubes (including a still bright green eye tube) tested good. Tube sockets cleaned as was the volume control. Tuner was cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. Has a factory "slip clutch" feature for fine tuning. Beautiful mirror dial. Cabinet was completely refinished using spray toners with some minor wood blemishes remaining. New dial cover. Original grille cloth, as well as the Tenite knobs and dial escutcheon (has one minor crack but minimal warpage!). 19-1/4"W x 13"H x 10-1/4"D. $349.00. (1790044)

 

Silvertone 7251 (1939)

NEW!

Silvertone 7251 (1939)

First time on Radio Attic for this model Sears Roebuck catalog radio! Featuring four push buttons that can be set for your favorite stations (the fifth button on the right needs to be pushed in for normal dial tuning), a stylish multi grain wood cabinet, and original cool looking wood pointed knobs! Receives all the local stations with its factory built in loop antenna. A transformer-less set so it takes a few seconds longer to come to life. The chassis was gone through with new filter and paper capacitors, tubes all tested good. Tube sockets cleaned as was the volume control. Tuner was cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. New polarized line cord. Cabinet was completely refinished using spray toners with some minor wood blemishes remaining. New grille cloth and dial cover (the white patch on the dial in the pic is glare from the overhead florescent lights). 14"W x 9"H x 8"D. $279.00. (1790043)
