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)

 

Astron RS-20A Ham Radio Power Supply

Coca-Cola Radio (Randix OTR1949, 1984)

Coca-Cola Radio (Randix OTR1949, 1984)

This is a neat replica of one of Coke's old style cola cooler boxes that used to be in most every single grocery store and smoke shop around back in the 1940's and 50's. This was produced by Randix in 1984. It's an amazing AM-FM radio and tape player. Everything works very well. The great looking case is in excellent condition too 12"W x 10"H x 9"D. $75.00. (0021536)

 

Crosley 10-138

Crosley 10-138

This is a nice one for the restorer. In checking I find the chassis while it's dirty it has no rust, the tubes are in place. The power cord will need to be replaced. The case has no cracks and it has the proper knobs. $50.00. (0021547)

 

Decca Portable Record Player (about 1960)

Decca Portable Record Player (about 1960)

Bring out all of your nice old favorite records, your 78's 45's and 33's too. It will play them all and sounds great. 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)

 

Delco R-1238 (1948)

Delco R-1238 (1948)

It's an AM five-tube Super-Heterodyne AC/DC radio with a ivory-colored plastic front (not a painted) panel with honeycomb speaker grille and matching knobs and station pointer, a spring loaded Lucite carry handle, and a nice looking reverse-painted dial scale with white lettering outlined in red over a black background. 12"W x 8"H x 6-1/4"D. $179.00.

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. Its small solid wood case has been professionally refinished now, and all the electronics have been replaced with newer upgrades to last for a very long time. This radio functions and sounds better then it ever did when new. It has a good solid back cover and a new power cord. 10"W x 7"H x 5-1/2"D. $195.00. (0021294)

 

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)

 

RCA 100A (1926)

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)

Beautiful and completely restored is this 1930's Art Deco period radio cabinet which I'm told was made by Ingraham. 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)

This is a pretty nice little Coral colored radio that is working; there aren't any cracks in it, it has some scratches that could possibly be buffed away to look better. The leather case is in fair condition too. Works on a 9 volt battery. 6-1/2"W x 3-1/2"W x 1-3/4"D. $59.00. (0021419)

 

Stewart-Warner B51T1 (1948)

Stewart-Warner B51T1 (1948)

This is great looking small five-tube radio with its Chocolate Mahogany brown Bakelite case which is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches. The electronics have been restored and this radio brings in stations all across the dial; it performs remarkably well for such a small set and with excellent clarity as well. The size of this little beauty is just 6"W x 5-1/2"H x 3-3/4"D. $269.00. (0021531)

 

Stewart-Warner B51T1 (1948)

Trav-Ler 5015 (1947)

Trav-Ler 5015 (1947)

Nice little AM broadcast set, a five-tube Super-Heterodyne type. It has been electronically restored and is working very well. I have re-painted it the same color that it was before; it was pretty badly scratched up when I received it. It will now look nice in most any room. 10"W x 6-1/2"H x 6"D. $159.50. (0021347)

 

Trav-Ler 5028A (1947)

Trav-Ler 5028A (1947)

This is such a great looking little portable radio and it has a surprising amount of power. After a complete electric restoration and tune-up I was able to tune in quite a few stations, clear and with very good volume. Cosmetically for a radio of this age it's in pretty amazing condition. There aren't any rips or tears in the faux snakeskin covering and the leather handle is in good condition too. Only 8-1/2"W x 5"H x 5"D. $159.00. (0021534)

Zenith 6-D-628 (1942)

Zenith 6-D-628 (1942)

Before Zenith went into wartime production this zenith model was one of the last they produced. It's one of Zenith's finest most popular designs.
