I offer a quantity discount on my radios, so check out my other listings and drop me a line if you're interested in more than one at a time. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed at no additional charge when the circuit design allows for another listening option beyond the standard AM broadcasts. You can plug in to the headphone port of your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio or unplug for standard AM broadcasts.

 

Air Castle BP6502 (1939)

NEW!

Air Castle BP6502 (1939)

First time on Radio Attic for this unique eight-tube, two-band set with a very cool slot machine-like cylindrical dial surrounded by a polished brass escutcheon! Made for the popular Chicago-based Spiegel stores by Continental, the chassis on this set has an interesting power transformer using a 7Y4 Loktal tube for the rectifier, with the socket built into the top of the transformer! In addition, it uses a mix of ST and GT style tubes for a most unusual line-up! The very ornate wood cabinet has been totally refinished with toners. Topped with a light coat of clear enamel for durability and sheen, the grille cloth is the original. The chassis has been gone through with all new wax and filter capacitors, a strong tested set of tubes. The controls were cleaned and lubricated to make them move smoothly (the dial tuning knob is designed to be pushed in for manual tuning and disengages when not in use so that the mechanical push button pre-sets can spin the dial). It's a strong playing AM radio with lots of volume, easily receiving all of my local stations. Requires a long-wire antenna for distant reception (or use the aux cable to stream your own audio). 21-1/4"W x 10-3/4"H x 10"D. $249.00. (1790250)

 

Emerson 851B (1957)

NEW!

Emerson 851B (1957)

Sleek and compact mid-century modern Emerson five-tube AM radio. Simple yet bold molded solid black plastic cabinet that's crack free with some superficial fine scratches here and there commiserate with its age. Features anodized gold accents on the knobs and gold lettering. Tube chassis is on a printed circuit board so my standard 3.5mm aux cord was not installed on this set. It's been recapped and plays surprisingly strong and loud with its little four-inch speaker, easily receiving all of my local stations. Controls cleaned and lubricated. Nice original cord and back cover. Maybe you remember your parents or grandparents having one of these in the kitchen or on the nightstand in the bedroom. Budget priced to sell. 8"W x 5-1/2"H x 6"D. $79.00. (1790246)

 

General Electric 102 (1948)

NEW!

General Electric 102 (1948)

Popular late 40's GE, this example has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, strong tested set of tubes, controls cleaned and lubricated. It plays loud and clear across the AM band with its built-in loop antenna, easily receiving all of my local stations. Cabinet was repaired and repainted in a deep teal with cream-colored knobs. Finish has a very nice shine with a few minor blemishes here and there. Nice basic "All American Five" that were the workhorse of the post-war era in so many applications, from bedside to kitchen to desktop. 12-1/2"W x 8-1/2 H x 8"D. $119.00. (1790243)

 

General Electric J-614 (1941)

NEW!

General Electric J-614 (1941)

First time this model has been offered on Radio Attic! This is a unique six-tube AM/SW compact table top set that only has two knobs but behind them are two swivel rings, one for tone, and the other for changing bands. Very reminiscent of a car radio controls. This example has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, strong tested set of tubes, controls cleaned and lubricated. It plays loud and clear across the AM band with its built-in loop antenna, easily receiving all of my local stations. The cabinet is beautiful for being 83 years old, with an all-natural crack free finish. It has an amazing dark cherry marble swirl pattern that really pops under bright lights. Almost looks Catalin-esque! 13"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D. $129.00. (1790244)

Spring Special: Take all three 1959-60 plastic cabinet table models priced at $69 each for $180! (Shipping is extra) Classic mid-century modern AM Tube Radio that has been gone through with strong tested tubes, new filter capacitors, volume control cleaned so it plays loud and clear across the AM dial. These five-tube plastic cabinet sets have their components mounted on printed circuit boards, so my usual 3.5mm aux cord was not added. Maybe you remember your parents or grandparents having one of these in the kitchen or on the nightstand in the bedroom? Or maybe you spotted one in an old Doris Day movie! Compact at 11"W x 6-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D. $69.00. (1790249)

General Electric T142A w/Original Box (1960)

General Electric T142A w/Original Box (1960)

Sleek and compact mid-century modern RCA five-tube AM radio with dual speakers! No, it's not stereo, but RCA figured two speakers are better than one! Simple yet bold molded white plastic cabinet that's crack free. Clear knobs with anodized gold inlays. Tube chassis on a printed circuit board so my standard 3.5mm aux cord was not installed on this set. Filter caps were changed, tubes all tested good, so it plays surprisingly strong and loud with its twin four inch speakers, easily receiving all of my local stations. Controls cleaned and lubricated. Original cord and back cover and, best of all, the original box too! How many people saved the box from their radios!? I've only came across a couple in my decades of collecting. Maybe you remember your parents or grandparents having one of these in the kitchen or on the nightstand in the bedroom? Budget priced to sell. 12"W x 6-1/4"H x 6-1/2"D. $99.00. (1790242)

Philco 41-230

NEW!

Philco 41-230

You can almost hear the booming voice of FDR in his famous declaration of war speech on 12/8/41 just by looking at this seven-tube powerhouse Philco. It receives both AM and the now defunct Police band, housed in a slim Bakelite cabinet. It has a massive internal wire-loop antenna, so it really pulls in all the local AM stations loud and strong. 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. The cabinet is beautiful for being 83 years-old, with an all-natural finish that has one tiny stress crack along a seam that's hardly worth noting. It has an amazing dark cherry marble swirl pattern that really pops under bright lights. Almost looks Catalin-esque! The lighted glass dial really pops on this one, too, when viewed in a dark room! Original grille cloth and proper Philco decals complete the restoration. 14"W x 10-1/2"H x 7-1/4"D. $179.00. (1790245)

 

Philco 46-427 (1946)

NEW!

Philco 46-427 (1946)

Only the second example of this somewhat scarce post war Philco to appear on Radio Attic. Receives AM and Shortwave in a relatively small yet well built wood cabinet. It has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, strong tested set of tubes, new line cord, controls cleaned and lubricated. It plays strong across the dial with its large copper loop antenna. Short wave reception is stronger at night. The cabinet was stripped of its white house paint and refinished using sanding sealer and toners and topped with a light coat of clear enamel. Original Philco decals were replaced. 15"W x 9-1/2"H x 9-1/2"D. $149.00. (1790251)
