Arvin 540 (1951)

NEW!

Arvin 540 (1951)

This is a little metal midget four-tube basic AM radio housed in a metal cabinet. The same chassis in this radio was used in Arvin's Hopalong Cassidy radio. It's been recapped and gone through with good tubes, new line cord, etc to make it play as well as can be expected for its primitive design. Needs to have the long wire antenna extended for reception beyond the strong local stations. Cabinet was repainted in the original Coral color. New back cover. Just 8"W x 5-1/2"H x 4"D. $69.00. (1790067)

 

Emerson 504 (1946)

NEW!

Emerson 504 (1946)

This classic All-American Five-tube AM set is known as the Bert & Ernie model among collectors, as this model was featured in a popular sketch on Sesame Street back in the 70's (search for Ernie and Bert: The Radio Knob on YouTube). All the paper and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced, tubes tested good, new polarized line cord. Controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. Original Bakelite back cover is intact. The Lucite front panel is still clear with a few minor scratches. The wood cabinet was completely refinished using toners, sanding sealer and clear enamel for durability. Plays loud & strong. 11-1/2"W x 9"H x 6-3/4"D. $129.00. (1790063)

 

Emerson 587 (1950)

NEW!

Emerson 587 (1950)

This little five-tube Emerson is the later version of this popular model, using microtubes. It's been totally recapped (filter, paper/wax, mica) along with nearly all resistors. Tubes all tested good, with two being NOS. It plays strong across the AM dial. New line cord. Controls cleaned & lubricated for smooth operation. A small heat related crack was repaired on top and the cabinet repainted in its original black color. 8-1/2"W x 5-1/2"H x 5"D. I offer a quantity discount on my radios so please inquire. (Example, take any two priced at $129 for $240. Shipping not included). $129.00. (1790068)

 

Philco 40-120 (1940)

NEW!

Philco 40-120 (1940)

Six-tube, AM & Police Band compact wood cabinet Philco with a factory carrying handle on top! Plays strong all along the AM band with its built in loop antenna that rivals Zenith's Wavemagnet! All the paper and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced, tubes tested good, new line cord. Controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. Original back cover is intact. The wood cabinet was refinished using toners, sanding sealer and clear enamel for durability. 11"W x 6-1/2"H x 7"D. I offer a quantity discount on my radios so please inquire (example, take any two priced at $129 for $240. Shipping not included). $129.00. (1790069)

 

Philco 40-150 (1940)

Philco 40-150 (1940)

This slant front cabinet Philco is a seven-tube unit with dual 41 output tubes and two powerful built in antenna units that pull in all the local stations. It receives AM/Shortwave and the now defunct Police band, along with seven push button preset buttons for AM only (the far right hand button is for dial tuning and must be pushed in for the set to receive). Strong tested tubes, all paper/wax/filter capacitors were changed. Out of tolerance resistors were changed. New polarized line cord. New chassis rubber mounts, new Philco pattern grille cloth and exact reproduction wine colored push-buttons. The cabinet finish is all original with some minor wear as to be expected after 82 years. The decals were replaced with exact reproductions. Original back cover is still is great shape. It's a big unit at 18-1/2"W x 10-1/2"H x 12-1/2"D. $219.00. (1790061)

 

Philco 42-323 (1942)

NEW!

Philco 42-323 (1942)

A low production model in Philco's 1942 abbreviated line-up, and you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer example. It's been recapped and aligned/peaked and really is a powerhouse for a six-tube set. I'm getting stations on both ends of the dial with the volume barely cracked and lots in between. Shortwave is equally active. One of the best performing small tabletop sets I've encountered. The original leatherette covering on the sides of the cabinet is near perfect, as is the Tenite front panel, with just a slight bow inward of one of the horizontal bars that's only visible if you're looking straight down the front (see photos). An amazingly preserved piece of Tenite (usually these are hopelessly warped). The glass dial is very nice too with no paint loss. The top was stripped and refinished with toner, as was the bottom wood strip where the knobs protrude through. Exact reproduction decals were replaced, and a light coat of clear enamel was added for durability. 13-1/2"W x 9"H x 8-1/2"D. $199.00. (1790062)

 

Philco 75 "Hippo" (Canada-1948)

NEW!

Philco 75 "Hippo" (Canada-1948)

The Philco "hippo" models have long been a favorite among collectors, because of their impressive lighted dial using an early form of fiber optic light diffusion through clear plastic. While plentiful, this particular model is somewhat more rare as it is a Canadian produced model 75, which is equivalent to the US model 48-460. There are a few subtle differences, mainly the dial lamp mount utilizing a "night light" bulb that is attached to the dial pointer so the light follows as you tune via a small mirror mounted above it. A very cool effect in a darkened room! The six-tube chassis has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, resistors changed that were out of tolerance, strong tested set of tubes, new line cord, controls cleaned and lubricated. It plays well across the AM band with its loop antenna. Original back is intact and in nice shape. The cabinet is all original natural finish with one minor stress crack on the bottom around a chassis mounting hole that has been reinforced inside. 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-3/4"D. I offer a quantity discount on my radios: take any two priced at $129 for $240 total (shipping not included). $129.00. (1790072)

 

RCA 9X572 "Bullhorn" (1950)

NEW!

RCA 9X572 "Bullhorn" (1950)

This ultra cool RCA Golden Throat is one of the best sounding AM radios I've ever restored, with its three-position bass/mid/treble control and acoustic front panel (dubbed the "Bullhorn"). Plus it has a built-in RCA phono jack for your MP3 player or other external audio device. The cabinet is all original finish! A strong tested set of tubes, it has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned/lubricated, & new line cord installed. 13"W x 9-3/4"H x 8-1/4"D. I also offer a quantity discount; purchase any two of my radios priced at $129 each for $240 (shipping not included). $129.00. (1790071)

First time an example of this model has been offered on the Attic! Classic six-tube AM radio with a bold sundial grille that really pops!

Teletone 107/8 (1946)

NEW!

Teletone 107/8 (1946)

This unique slant front cabinet five-tube AM Radio features a glass front panel with the knobs protruding through, & a unique criss-cross "X" pattern lattice grille work. It has been recapped, aligned, controls cleaned & lubricated, new line cord, new back cover, new grille cloth. Cabinet was stripped and refinished with spray toner, sanding sealer and clear enamel for durability. Has a beautiful bold wood grain pattern! Despite two hours of painstaking detail cleaning, there remains a tiny portion at the very low end of the dial just as it meshes fully where the tuner makes a minor scratching sound. Not a big deal, and it won't detract from your listening enjoyment. Compact at 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D. I offer a quantity discount on my radios so please inquire (example, take any two priced at $129 for $240. Shipping not included) $129.00. (1790070)
