Arvin 254T (1949)

NEW!

Arvin 254T (1949)

A very nicely preserved example of a little five-tube Arvin that's big on sound and style. Beautiful chocolate swirl cabinet that is in nearly flawless condition with no cracks or chips. Original molded burnt orange knob and dial are also nearly perfect. A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed so you can plug in to your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio. I offer a quantity discount on my radios priced at $119. Take any two radios for $220, any three for $300 (shipping is not included). 8-1/2"W x 6"H x 6"D. $119.00. (1790107)

 

Crosley 148 "Fiver" (1932)

Crosley 148 "Fiver" (1932)

1932 was the height of the Great Depression, and radio sales were way down this year. To compete, Crosley came out with this popular mini cathedral known as the "Fiver" (five tubes). Small, compact design, yet high on style, right down to its unique green "cat's eye" dial scale. This example was painstakingly traced out, component by component and every single capacitor and resistor was replaced for optimal performance. A strong tested set of tubes was installed, controls were cleaned and lubricated. The original cloth line cord is still soft and pliable, so it was left installed. It receives all of my local stations with a long wire antenna attached. Since the set has no AVC, the volume control is part of the antenna circuit, so the louder the volume, the stronger the stations will come in, but it will blast if you go from a distant station to a local station (both hands are needed on the controls as you tune!). The cabinet was completely stripped and refinished using rich color spray toners and topped off with a light coat of clear enamel for durability. A new exact pattern grille cloth was installed. 14"H x 11-1/2"W x 9"D. $219.00. (1790102)

 

Emerson 541 (1947)

NEW!

Emerson 541 (1947)

Beautiful example of this iconic and popular five-tube Emerson. The cabinet, designed by Raymond Loewy (French born American industrial designer) sometimes called the "Moderne," has been refinished using spray toners and topped with a light coat of clear enamel for durability. The marbled faux wood grain finish on the bottom panel is still in very nice condition as is the usually hopelessly yellowed dial. A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. Sounds great with its built-in loop antenna. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed so you can plug into your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio. I offer a quantity discount on my radios priced at $119. Take any two radios for $220, any three for $300 (shipping is not included). 12"W x 7"H x 8"D. $119.00. (1790111)

 

Emerson A132 (1936)

NEW!

Emerson A132 (1936)

Unique six-tube plus ballast compact table model Emerson with a Repwood front panel that's pressed in the color you see and is still in remarkable condition. The outer shell of the cabinet has been nicely refinished, and the original wood back cover is still present. A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord and antenna wire installed. Receives all of my local stations with ease. Be sure to check my other listings as I offer a quantity discount on my radios if you purchase more than one. 12"W x 8-1/4"H x 7"D. $129.00. (1790112)

 

Philco 40-115 (1940)

NEW!

Philco 40-115 (1940)

Six-tube, AM & Police Band compact Philco was one of their budget sets in the 1940 line-up, but there's nothing cheap about the styling of this multi-toned wood cabinet with gold inlay stripes and a unique grille lattice work. Receives all the local stations with its built-in loop antenna. 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 line cord. Original Philco bullet knobs. Cabinet has been refinished using spray toners and topped with a light coat of clear enamel for durability. New Philco pattern grille cloth, & a new clear dial cover complete the restoration. 12"W x 8"H x 6"D. Be sure to check my other listings. I offer a quantity discount if you purchase more than one. $129.00. (1790103)

 

Philco 41-226 (1941)

NEW!

Philco 41-226 (1941)

Introduced as part of Philco's line-up in the fall of 1940, the unique throwback Art Deco inspired cabinet was quickly dubbed "The Sled." The cabinet on this example was stripped and totally refinished using spray toners topped with a light spray of clear enamel for durability. The original Tenite grillework is still in nice shape with only minimal warpage. The original back cover is still intact too! This AM/SW set is a strong player across the dial with its powerful built in loop antenna. The Short-Wave band is more active at night. Pushbutton presets work, however the original off/on pushbutton (first button on the left) was beyond repair, so a brand-new volume control was installed with an off/on switch in place of the original volume only pot. Good-tested tubes, new capacitors, tested resistors and new line cord complete this restoration. And it is Bluetooth or MP3 player compatible with a 3.5mm cord installed so you can enjoy your favorite music through the radio by plugging into your device. Be sure to check my other listings as I offer a quantity discount on my radios if you purchase more than one. 13-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D. $149.00. (1790106)

 

Philco PT-6 Transitone (1941)

NEW!

Philco PT-6 Transitone (1941)

A completely new Philco Transitone for 1941, this popular chassis would remain in production in various cabinet designs and with different model numbers for 1942 and again for a few years after WW2. This was the first and only year for this unique wood cabinet with beautiful multi grain veneers. This example sports all original finish that is still very nice save for two minor stress cracks in the veneer around the radius' on either side of the (beautiful) glass dial scale. Original grille cloth, Philco decal, and back cover too! A true time capsule from the year of infamy. A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. Plays loud and strong across the dial with its massive internal wood-framed factory loop antenna. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed for another listening option beyond the standard AM broadcasts. You can plug into your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio. I offer a quantity discount on my radios if you purchase more than one. 12"W x 9"H x 7-1/4"D. $129.00. (1790110)

 

RCA 10X (1940)

NEW!

RCA 10X (1940)

A very nicely preserved example of this popular five-tube "2nd Little Nipper" RCA that's big on sound and style. Beautiful swirl cabinet that is in nearly flawless condition with no cracks or chips. Gorgeous glass slide rule dial against a purple background really shines at night in a dark room! A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. Sounds great with its built-in loop antenna. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed so you can plug into your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio. I offer a quantity discount on my radios priced at $119. Take any two radios for $220, any three for $300 (shipping is not included). 10-1/2"W x 7"H x 6-1/2"D. $119.00. (1790108)

 

RCA 65U Radio/Phonograph (1946)

RCA 65U Radio/Phonograph (1946)

Five-tube AM radio & 78 rpm (only) Victrola record player. If you've got a bunch of old 78's and no record player to play them on, this is a nice unit. It has been cleaned and lubed and a new ceramic mono cartridge with 3 mil sapphire needle especially made for 78 rpm records installed. The record changer works (it doesn't always trip at the end of a record); however, it's not advised to play a stack of records due to how brittle they have become with age. Using it as a single play is best (photo of records on changer for illustration only). The chassis was gone through with new filter & paper capacitors, resistors checked & changed as needed. Tubes all tested good. Tube sockets cleaned as was the volume control. Tuner was cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. New line cord. Receives all the local stations with its factory built-in loop antenna. The cabinet is all original finish with some minor wear, scratches and paint specks as to be expected after 76 years. 17-1/4"W x 10-1/2"H x 17-1/4"D. $149.00. (1790101)

 

RCA Victor 66X12 (1946)

NEW!

RCA Victor 66X12 (1946)

This great sounding six-tube RCA Golden Throat is a true survivor. The cabinet sports its original painted finish and is in nearly perfect condition with only a few tiny speck blemishes that are barely noticeable. Nothing was touched up or painted, it remains as it left the factory in 1946 right down to the grille cloth and beautiful side-lit glass dial that really pops in a darkened room. This AM set is a strong player across the dial. Good-tested tubes, new capacitors, tested resistors and new line cord complete this restoration. And it is Bluetooth or MP3 player compatible with a 3.5mm cord installed so you can enjoy your favorite music through the radio by plugging into your device. Be sure to check my other listings as I offer a quantity discount on my radios if you purchase more than one. 13-1/2"W x 8-1/4"H x 7"D. $119.00. (1790105)

 

RCA Victor X-5EJ (1954)

NEW!

RCA Victor X-5EJ (1954)

First time this model has been offered on the Attic, and this example is a true time capsule. It is about as close to a new radio as you can get. The two-tone molded white & dark grey cabinet is in nearly perfect condition with only a few small superficial marks that are hardly worth noting. Nice mid-century modern designed six-tube AM set that's a strong player across the dial. Good-tested tubes, new capacitors and tested resistors complete this restoration. And it features a built-in RCA jack in back so that you can play your Bluetooth or MP3 player through the radio using an RCA to 3.5mm cable. Be sure to check my other listings as I offer a quantity discount on my radios if you purchase more than one. 11"W x 7"H x 7-1/2"D. $119.00. (1790104)

 

Sentinel 314W (1947)

NEW!

Sentinel 314W (1947)

This streamlined five-tube Sentinel is a truly classic design, showcased in the lavish coffee table picture book "Radios Redux" by Philip Collins. Beautiful swirl cabinet that is in nearly flawless condition save for one minor stress crack next to the dial scale. Featuring an upside-down mounted chassis, this is an early production model and does not have a lighted dial. A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. The original loop antenna was missing, and a substitute installed along with a long wire which will be needed for reception beyond strong local stations. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed for another listening option beyond the standard AM broadcasts. You can plug into your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio. I offer a quantity discount on my radios priced at $119. Take any two radios for $220, any three for $300 (shipping is not included). 10-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $119.00. (1790109)

Silvertone 7251 (1939)

This Sears Roebuck catalog radio is AM only, 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!
