Airline 25GSL-1814A (1952)

Airline 25GSL-1814A (1952)

This vintage Airline model is a bit unusual and rare, for I haven't seen this model before and I have been in the radio business for quite a long time. I have completely restored it, replacing all of the older paper and wax type capacitors with newer longer lasting ones. Also replaced the old style electrolytic capacitors which cause that hum that you hear in older radios when they go bad. All the tubes have been checked on my tester and I have replaced any of the bad ones with new, all circuits checked and working properly now and the radio sounds as nice as it looks. 10-3/4"W x 7"H x 7-3/4"D. $194.50. (0021380)

The amplifier has been completely restored by replacing all of the old type capacitors and replaced the electrolytics so there's no hum and had the power tube replaced. It has a good cartridge and a new needle. I have gone thru it cleaned and lubed all of the moving parts. The case is solid, shows some wear a few scuffs of course for its age but is pretty fair as you can see. $139.00. (0021448)

 

Detrola Radio (1940-41)

General Electric CL-541 (1946-47)

General Electric CL-541 (1946-47)

This excellent looking radio is a bit rare and I was not able to find out very much on this nice General Electric set which was made in Canada.

German Victrola

German Victrola

I don't have any idea when this copy of what appears to be the upscale model of a 1911 Victor Victrola model VV-IX Type D was produced or how it came to America, but I have it and it is a real charmer. It's in excellent working condition and the case is in very nice condition too. There is no corrosion on any of the metal parts, the turntable green felt cover appears like new and there extra new needles. $275.00. (0021251)

Motorola 52B5 (1951-52)

Motorola 52B5 (1951-52)

This good looking AM broadcast portable radio has an all metal case with a gold painted top and the lower covered with a black vinyl material. There are no scuffs in the vinyl or cracks or breaks, it's a very solid, nice case. The electronics have been upgraded with all the newer electronic parts and the radio plays very well, loud and clear and bringing in many stations. It works on standard AC household current. When it was used as a portable radio it required two "D" size batteries and a 67.5 volt "B" battery which is no longer available. 8-1/4"W x 6-1/4"H x 2-1/4"D. $69.00. (0021132)

 

Motorola 67L11 Portable (1947)

Motorola 67L11 Portable (1947)

Five-tube AM Broadcast portable with AC power. This set was made for Motorola by The Galvin Mfg. Co. 1947. It has been completely restored electronically with all of the older capacitors replaced with new, and new electrolytics have replaced the old ones too, so it will no longer have any background deep hum. The tubes have all been checked and good ones have replaced any that needed to be and this radio plays very well now. It has a good power cord. The faux snake-skin cabinet has some scuffing but very little it is mostly on the inside of the front cover (see picture). 13"W x 9-1/2"H x 6-1/4"D. $89.00. (0021434)

 

Pilot "Blue Peter" (1949)

Pilot "Blue Peter" (1949)

Pilot "Blue Peter" (1949). Completely restored and working to perfection is this British Pilot radio with all new modern capacitors, some resistors checked and replaced too, all tubes checked and any that needed to be replaced were replaced with new or test like new tubes. The beautiful solid Burled Tiger Wood cabinet has been professionally refinished. The green tuning eye tube is nice and bright, it opens and closes perfectly. The colorful dial lights up. This radio has the AM band and four other short wave bands five bands in all and brings in many stations strong and clear and with a real good antenna after sundown short-wave comes in pretty good. I have attached about a ten foot antenna drop wire to the back for extra good reception and a ground wire works well on this TRF type set too. The radio as can be seen has a very nice back cover. What's the meaning of the name "Blue Peter?" you wonder. The Blue Peter was originally a blue maritime signal flag meaning the letter "P" or outward bound and flown to warn the ships crew they about to sail. 19-1/4"W x 15"H x 9-1/4"D. $589.00. (0021515)

 

RCA T4-10 (1933)

Sentinel 333W (1949)

Sentinel 333W (1949)

This set has a Bakelite case that is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or deep scratches. It has a lighted dial. Some electronic work has been done in the past I see, I have checked all tubes and replaced several with new or test like new tubes. In checking it the AM broadcast is working very well but no working FM. So this set is sold as just an AM set. $79.50. (0021386)

 

Silvertone 1591 "Custom" (1940-41)

Silvertone 1591 "Custom" (1940-41)

This is quite different from any of the other Sears 1591 models that I have come across over the years as it's all nicely decorated with colorful designs of fruits and flowers and quite nicely done. The radio receives broadcasts on AM with a Shortwave band and also shows the old Police band too. This is a nine-tube set and is what's called a Superheterodyne. Sears named it a "Radionet" because it has a special built-in antenna system to help bring in those distant stations. It is working perfectly; all the old capacitors have now been replaced with the newer types and it also has new filter capacitors, and a nice long vintage cloth covered style power cord and a vintage plug to match. All of the tubes have checked out good, it has a nice bright tuning eye too. 18"W x 16"H x 10"D. $425.00. (0021381)

 

Silvertone 6120 (1939)

Silvertone 6120 (1939)

It's been professionally and beautifully refinished as well as electronically restored and sounds great. It's a six tube Super-Heterodyne AM with Short-Wave. 14-1/2"W x 9"H x 7"D. $449.00. (0021257)

 

Silvertone 8206 (1957)

Silvertone 8206 (1957)

Silvertone 9005 (1949)

Silvertone 9005 (1949)

Here's a great looking table model, a five-tube Superheterodyne AM set that has had all the electronics gone thru, capacitors replaced with the newer types. All circuits checked, all tubes checked on my tube checker replacing any poor ones with new or test like new ones. The power cord has been replaced with a new one. This radio has a large internal wire-wound antenna for its good reception. The nice shiny case is in pretty nice condition too with no scratches, cracks or breaks except as you see that little piece in back top right. This is a nice looking radio! 12-1/2"W x 6-3/4"H x 6-3/4"D. $110.00. (0021423)

 

Stewart-Warner B51T1 (1948)

Trav-Ler 46-37 Karenola (1956-57)

This nice little AM Superheterodyne Midget radio only has five tubes, but it has BIG sound. It has a built-in antenna for very good reception. The cream color case almost looks like a Plaskon type plastic. There is a small one and a half inch very thin stress crack on the top right (see extra photos), it is priced accordingly. Only 9-1/2"W x 6"H x 5"D. $87.50. (0021188)
