Bulova 830

Bulova 830

Beautiful. No cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It's super clean. It doesn't work; just faint static. It'll need a little work to get it to perform well again. The stem is missing on watch also, so that's untested. Leather case is in good shape.  $50.00. (2430005)

 

Capri 8TS33

Capri 8TS33

Nice project radio that picks up a couple stations but mostly just distortion, so it'll need a restoration. There is a repaired crack on the bottom left of the rare blue-green cabinet. The plastic has a few areas a bit scuffed but overall it's a beautiful, solid set.  $30.00. (2430070)

 

Channel Master 6506

Channel Master 6506

Nice project radio in box with accessories in splendid shape, no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It does somewhat work but pops too much to really call it working. It'll need some restoration. So, get it, get it fixed and you'll have a solid set in the box.  $50.00. (2430050)

 

Channel Master 6514

Channel Master 6514

Radio is clean with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It has some scratches and scuffs is all. It buzzes and squeals so it'll need a service but a worthy restoration radio. Battery holder is in great shape which is rare with these.  $30.00. (2430087)

Fox GT-2

Fox GT-2

Incredibly rare one-transistor Japanese radio. Radio comes in its box (nice shape) with original instructions/ad?, original wire antenna and I've also included an early Eagle battery and earphone (not shown) that are from same era. Radio does not work as far as I can tell but it's not been tampered with and no attempt has been made to fix it. The top and bottom right have hairline cracks. It's still stunning and unique and super cool. You'll not see another--at least I've never seen another.  $230.00. (2430007)

 

General Electric 675

NEW!

General Electric 675

The first GE tranny in nice shape cosmetically, with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Nice lettering too. The radio does have some scrapes from taking it out of leather case, etc. The radio was rigged (I tried my best) with batteries that should have made it work but nothing, not a sound. It takes an unusual EverReady 239 battery (included but dead) and leather case in spectacular condition, strap and all. If you are into restoration and want a nice one to dig into, this is the one.  $100.00. (2430101)

 

General Electric P716B

General Electric P716B

Really cool plaid grille project radio with charger. No cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. This is one of the most under-appreciated radios from the 50's and 60's with its cool plaid design. Unfortunately this one makes no noise with batteries inserted. The handle needs to be adjusted as it seems to come out pretty easily and as I remember, these are supposed to lock in place. This radio looks fabulous and with a little work will be worthy of anyone's transistor collection. Plus, the P-15A charger unit is included and in great shape, zipper and all in a leather purse.  $40.00. (2430051)

 

General Electric P-730

NEW!

General Electric P-730

Leather encased radio is very rare. Leather is surprisingly in great shape and snap is great too. It has a pretty clean front but some wear is shown. Radio does work but only by pushing on knob, so a little tinkering might get it to 100%.  $25.00. (2430100)

 

General Electric P-745A

NEW!

General Electric P-745A

Not working, project radio. It looks great despite a little fleabite nick top left of back cover.  $20.00. (2430090)

 

General Electric P-831A

General Electric P-831A

Works weakly. It has your typical missing teeth on bottom of inside of back panel but back stays on when holding it upside down. It sure looks nice and is quite a display piece.  $40.00. (2430008)

 

General Electric P1730B

NEW!

General Electric P1730B

Radio is in great shape but not working, no sound at all. A great radio to get restored. Leather case is in good shape but torn on right.  $15.00. (2430086)

 

Global GR-201 Boy's Radio

Global GR-201 Boy's Radio

Nice looking and rare Boy's Radio. No cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. There's a scratch near the volume knob that could be buffed out if it bothers you. The radio does not work at all, picks up nothing whatsoever.  $40.00. (2430009)

 

Goliath P-156S

Goliath P-156S

Radio has no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines and I can't get it to work although my attempt to get it to work wasn't great. It might work. The spring inside has a bit of corrosion at the negative end of the "C" battery compartment.  $150.00. (2430078)

 

Harpers GK-200

Harpers GK-200

Project radio just producing static. It has a chip top right and left at antenna hole and strap attachment. Grille concave at speaker. The radio is gorgeous and worthy of restoration. Leather case is in great shape.  $20.00. (2430010)

 

Herald P-156 Miniature Tube

Herald P-156 Miniature Tube

Nice Japanese made copy of the Emerson 856 tube portable. This is a very nice example with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Insides look good except for some localized corrosion at the entry point for the "C" battery. I tried to get it to work on my bench power supply but couldn't get anything at all. It might be an easy fix as I didn't dig into this at all; it's exceptionally clean inside except for what I mentioned.  $125.00. (2430011)

 

Hinode T-22

Hinode T-22

Tiny one-transistor set. It works weakly, just able to get one weak station with earphone. The radio has a chip on top right and bottom left. 3"W x 2"H.  $40.00. (2430012)

 

Hitachi WH-822H

NEW!

Hitachi WH-822H

Radio not working presently, just faint static. The grille has a little impression by the badge that can be pushed out flat from inside when you fix it. The black cabinet is in great shape with only one hairline at a louver on the back cover. No other cracks or chips anywhere. The antenna is straight and true and included with the leather case that has some stitching issues.  $20.00. (2430096)

 

Kobe Kogyo KT-75

NEW!

Kobe Kogyo KT-75

Project set with no chips, but one hard to see crack bottom left. Radio works a bit but buzzes too on some stations but does pick up a couple. It takes an oddball cylindrical 9 volt battery (not included). The grille shows a bit of waviness but not too bad. Good looker and classic Japan for restore.  $20.00. (2430099)

 

Linmark PR-100 Miniature Tube Portable

Linmark PR-100 Miniature Tube Portable

A really rare radio. It works but sounds a little distorted. I tested it with my bench power supply; 67.5 volt battery and D battery not included. This beauty is in good shape but has a little missing plastic on inner lip of back cover and just above the volume knob on left. These flaws barely are noticeable. This nice baby blue cabinet is translucent. What a stunning set. The inside is in great shape.  $120.00. (2430013)

 

Matsushita T-13 (by Panasonic)

Matsushita T-13 (by Panasonic)

This clean radio works on many stations with decent volume but not as loud as it would have brand new. It has no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Volume is probably about 70% normal. No leather case.  $40.00. (2430015)

 

Melos 6-Transistor

NEW!

Melos 6-Transistor

Radio has many repaired cracks and chips but if you're handy with epoxy cabinet repairs, this is one to fix up. It doesn't work either, but produces sounds when turning on and off. I am offering this because despite the poor condition, it's incredibly rare and a relic and looks as nice in my cabinet as it does on the Radio Attic! Leather case is in good shape.  $60.00. (2430094)

 

Minivox RR-34B

Minivox RR-34B

Great shape, no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines (hardly any wear) and radio works but very weakly, hardly able to hear it. This is usually the sign of electrolytic capacitors needing replacement. The clock/alarm does work well. The box is in great shape and instructions are included. It's a beauty!  $120.00. (2430016)

 

Motorola X21

Motorola X21

Project radio, not working presently. No cracks or chips or hairlines. Metal shiny, some loss of paint but not bad and looks nice. Plastic has some dark edges that could be buffed out but not bad. Uses three UM-5 batteries.  $30.00. (2430017)

 

National Panasonic T-91

National Panasonic T-91

Really rare version of a "Portalarm" but just "Watch Portable" on this one. Clock works but nothing on radio, and takes an obscure cylindrical battery (not included). Tiny hairline crack top right next to on/off/auto switch. Just scuffs and scratches otherwise. Leather case is in nice shape. Japanese manufacture.  $75.00. (2430018)

 

Pacific 6

Pacific 6

Nice looking, made by Crown I believe. Radio front looks fantastic with nice reverse paint. Chip/crack top right and tight crack bottom right that's easy to miss. It does work; not the loudest radio but works decently. Leather case is in good shape but strap broke.  $60.00. (2430019)

 

Panorama KR-6TS60 ("Panorama 60")

Panorama KR-6TS60 ("Panorama 60")

An incredible find. It should work but it's untested. It looks to use four UM-5 batteries but I've only got one right now, and the battery setup is not easy to figure out how to use bench power supply on it. Anyway, hairline top left and a little tarnishing on tuning knob do not detract much; it's a nice looker! Leather case is in good shape, too.  $175.00. (2430020)

 

Peerless 625

Peerless 625

Project radio is super clean, no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines and hardly any scratches. The instructions and case are included too; case has tear on top. This rare set works to an extent but becomes muffled as you turn volume up. It still picks up lots and lots of volume but muffles.  $50.00. (2430021)

 

Petite NTR-120

Petite NTR-120

In box with no damage; no cracks or chips or hairlines. The plastic is really cool Plaskon I believe and translucent. The leather case, earphone case, earphone and instructions are included. Radio works but only with earphone.  $50.00. (2430022)

 

Philco T50-124

Philco T50-124

Radio takes four large button cell batteries (available online) and when I rigged it up I got it to work well, picking up many stations; but it stays at one volume, not quiet, just nice volume. Leather case is in good shape, just strap is cut. The tuning knob plastic is a little scuffed on one side that could probably buffed out if it bothers you. It has one little crack at bottom at door but it's been repaired. Solid set.  $45.00. (2430068)

 

Philco T500-124

NEW!

Philco T500-124

Radio looks nice; it's pink! No cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It is a project radio because the metal clip that holds back on at the bottom is rusted off. The back doesn't stay on well but does sit in a cabinet or on a shelf just fine. The battery contacts are mostly okay but one is rusted off and that end of the compartment could be replaced if you have a donor. The other components look good. So, if you have some electrical savvy and some donor parts this will fix up nicely, a worthy restoration radio.  $30.00. (2430095)

 

Philmore TR-101

Philmore TR-101

Radio is untested; I don't know how to work it and don't have earphone for it anyway. It might work. It looks super clean, no damage, nice bright red cabinet. The instructions and wiring diagram are included and antenna (not shown).  $60.00. (2430023)

 

RCA Victor 3-RH10

RCA Victor 3-RH10

While radio does work very loud, volume adjustment is very touchy so it'll be a project radio for someone to fix up someday. You push on volume knob and it works for a bit and sometimes you need to wiggle it a bit to get it to fire up. It takes an obsolete cylindrical 4 volt battery. It's super clean with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Leather case is in good shape but top is creased badly as leather has dried over the years.  $20.00. (2430082)

 

RCA 4RH12

NEW!

RCA 4RH12

Radio is very clean with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It just buzzes so it'll need some servicing.  $15.00. (2430098)

 

RCA Victor 8-BT-8FE

RCA Victor 8-BT-8FE

Radio has no cracks or chips or hairlines. It's very clean all over. It does not work, no sound whatsoever. It takes an obscure cylindrical 9 volt battery available online (VS 300).  $50.00. (2430024)

 

RCA Victor 8-BT-9E

RCA Victor 8-BT-9E

Very early RCA Victor; project set not working, no sound. It has no cracks or chips or hairlines. It does have wear and a little staining on cabinet in a couple areas.  $80.00. (2430049)

 

RCA Victor 9-BT-9H

RCA Victor 9-BT-9H

Nice project radio; no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Just lots of age related wear. Coin-slot is a bit worn too. It doesn't work at all but looks clean inside.  $40.00. (2430025)

 

Realistic 90LX661

Realistic 90LX661

Nice project radio. It's a Toshiba made multiband set and is large and solid. It has a fantastic slab of reverse paint that is eye catching to say the least. Radio works on AM and SW but not very loud - it'll need new caps most likely. It has no cracks or chips but one louver on back panel has a hairline. Super clean set overall, just scratches mainly.  $60.00. (2430027)

 

Realistic "Little Six"

Realistic "Little Six"

A really nice Japanese set with good leather: still snaps and together. It does have minor wear but these usually fall apart. It works pretty loud and somewhat distorted, picking up many stations and battery connector has been soldered to use a standard battery.  $55.00. (2430028)

 

Regency TR-7

Regency TR-7

Radio works pretty well actually when you get those three "AA" batteries in there right. The battery holder is rinky-dink but surprisingly works. There are two hard to see hairline cracks on two corners and the bottom left has a small chip. It's a real oddball radio with the reverse painted section on top and the 50's grille pattern. The grille doesn't lay quite flat but that can be flattened on there if you wish. I think this is Regency's only reverse painted radio. It's probably rarer than the TR-1.  $100.00. (2430029)

 

Rivera RV62

Rivera RV62

Project radio makes no noise but has a perfect cabinet with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Hardly any scratches. This is quite a specimen needing some attention.  $15.00. (2430072)

 

Roland Riviera 4P2-2 Tube Portable

Roland Riviera 4P2-2 Tube Portable

A nice four-tube portable set with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines, just minor wear. Inside is very clean and it does produce static but no actual stations. The leather case is torn at top. It sure is one of the simplest and cheesiest tube portables with a silly handle configuration.  $60.00. (2430084)

 

Sanyo 8S-P2

Sanyo 8S-P2

This is a very rare medium and shortwave radio is in amazing cosmetic shape with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. A few scratches is all. Leather case is in decent shape with no strap. The radio only picks up one station at fair volume and I can't tell on shortwave but it might work a little too.  $60.00. (2430030)

 

Sceptre STR-217 Boy's Radio

Sceptre STR-217 Boy's Radio

Nice looking radio with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It's very clean but doesn't work; no sound at all. It comes in box with vinyl case and original warranty.  $40.00. (2430054)

 

Sinclair Dino Supreme

Sinclair Dino Supreme

Mint in box with no wear and instructions and earphone. Leather case is new, too. Unfortunately, it makes no sound at all.  $40.00. (2430031)

 

Sony 727Y

Sony 727Y

Project radio in good shape overall but has a chip top left poorly repaired. Radio just picks up static weakly. Super rare!  $40.00. (2430003)

 

Sony ICR-120

NEW!

Sony ICR-120

Integrated circuit radio does pick up a station weakly but I can't make out what they're saying. It was not used much at all (if at all) and looks new with all the accessories and paperwork. Opening it up to inspect it (super clean interior, no battery leakage) I noticed that on the bottom edge there is a tiny piece of plastic missing. The cardboard box is torn up but it all inside is great.  $140.00. (2430097)

 

Sony TFM-116A

Sony TFM-116A

Project radio works great on FM but AM is just static and I didn't hear anything on Marine. There are no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines on this clean set but one antenna topper is missing. Very nice project. Antennas are straight and true.  $60.00. (2430001)

 

Sony TR-620

Sony TR-620

Radio is super clean with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It works, picking up several stations with medium to poor volume, not too loud. Leather case is in great shape.  $40.00. (2430083)

 

Sony TR-725

NEW!

Sony TR-725

Nice radio; no cracks or chips or hairlines, several scratches and scuffs mostly from leather case zipper. Metal has a few little marks on side and on speaker but not bad. The radio does not work, no sound and rear wire antenna plug/post is missing but top antenna is present and in leather case for screwing in on top. This is a good project set. Leather case is very tight and not worth trying to zip up for me.  $30.00. (2430091)

 

Sony TR-810

Sony TR-810

Radio has no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines and works weakly on one station and static everywhere else. Radio has some scratches, especially on back and someone scribed "O of T '62 Royal Dukes." The earphone and plastic bags are included.  $50.00. (2430032)

 

Sony TR-881

Sony TR-881

A radio getting very hard to get. This project set has a chip bottom right and a bit of discoloration towards the top sides. The slide-rule dial slips a bit too. It picks up static only. It has a lot going for it despite the flaws and would be a worthy radio for restoration. Leather case is torn a little on top and strap is torn too.  $30.00. (2430085)

 

SounDesign TR-1820

SounDesign TR-1820

Project radio in super shape; no cracks or chips or hairlines. Super clean! The radio does not work, just faint static. A good restoration piece made by Realtone.  $35.00. (2430033)

 

Standard Micronic Ruby SR-G430

Standard Micronic Ruby SR-G430

Not sure if this works or not, so assume it a project radio. I don't have any batteries for it. It's in great shape, no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines, very clean. It comes with earphone and strap, both look nice.  $30.00. (2430074)

 

Summitone FR604

NEW!

Summitone FR604

A radio that sat in the box its entire life. It's stunning and has absolutely no wear. While I picked up a weak station and faint static it'll need a servicing. Once serviced it'll be fantastic. Leather case is in new shape. Earphone looks good but earphone case has a tear at snap. The box does have plenty of wear along with some wear with the insert.  $60.00. (2430089)

 

Toshiba 6TP-314

Toshiba 6TP-314

No sound at all unfortunately. Nothing. A tiny hairline bottom right, very hard to see like an eyelash. It looks new except that, super shape and nice looking. A good restoration piece. Leather case in great shape.  $30.00. (2430035)

 

Toshiba 6TP-393

NEW!

Toshiba 6TP-393

Radio is clean inside but not working, just faint static. The plastic is chip and crack free, no hairlines either. The metal front is flat but has lots of tiny dings and scratches. Regardless, a cool radio for restoration.  $30.00. (2430092)

 

Toshiba 6TP-394

Toshiba 6TP-394

Project radio. Radio has no cracks or chips or hairlines, but missing plastic from the back portion along the lip upper right and bottom left which are covered up with back on and despite being where tabs are back stays on great. Grille is concave a little but not bad. Radio not working presently and springs have a touch of corrosion on them. A nice little looker.   $25.00. (2430036)

 

Trancel TR-50

Trancel TR-50

Project radio in great shape, no cracks or chips or hairlines. It has a little bit of a concave grille that can be pushed out if it bothers you. It's pretty minor. The radio just picks up static. The leather case is in pretty good shape.  $60.00. (2430037)

 

Transette 10-109

Transette 10-109

Radio not presently working, just some faint static. Comes in box with leather case. Box shows wear. The back stays on when holding it up but tabs are missing on back cover; you can't see the missing tabs with back on. This is a rare one.  $35.00. (2430038)

 

Transette TRN-346B

Transette TRN-346B

Rare three-transistor radio. I pick up a few very faint stations that I can only hear with my ear right on grille. It'll need a re-cap to work like new again. It has no cracks or chips or hairlines and has some scratches here and there and could be buffed out if you wanted it to shine. It still looks nice and nice enough for my daughter (16 year-old) to say it was pretty and she rarely gets excited enough to say anything about my hobby.  $80.00. (2430040)

 

Universal PTR-81B

Universal PTR-81B

Project radio needs restoration as it's just emitting faint static. Two back louvers are missing and there is a repaired crack on the top left.  $10.00. (2430073)

Westinghouse H-903P8GP

NEW!

Westinghouse H-903P8GP

Radio not working presently, no sound. Project radio has no cracks or chips or hairlines. The tuning dial center disc has a bit of crazing but it's a clean set inside and out. The battery holder has a bit of rust on the positive contact but it's local there and not bad or keeping contact. The battery holder is in good shape, not broken. Electrical components are good too, looking untampered with.  $30.00. (2430093)

 

Wilco ST-88 Deluxe

Windsor 6T-220

Windsor 6T-220

Radio in great shape; no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. It just has minor wear but not much. It's not working at all, not a thing; not a peep out of it. It's worth fixing but I've no time to get into it.  $65.00. (2430043)

 

York TR-85

York TR-85

Project radio is missing battery clip/wiring and has an easy to miss crack on the bottom right edge. It otherwise looks fantastic and is a good radio to restore someday. I tried to connect power to the wires directly and couldn't get it to fire up.  $15.00. (2430071)

 

Zenith Royal 250

Zenith Royal 250

Radio works but not as loud as it should, probably about 40% of new radio loudness. Still, it picks up lots. There is a small chip top right that can be seen in picture and the rest of the radio looks really good.  $30.00. (2430045)

 

Zenith Royal 475

Zenith Royal 475

Project radio not working presently and some terminals have corrosion, one missing completely. It is also missing front badge. There's a small repaired chip top left and a bit of paint loss.  $20.00. (2430046)

 

Zenith Royal 500

Zenith Royal 500

Nice project set, early hand wired Zenith. No cracks or chips or hairlines, just normal wear from use and some of the lettering/numbers rubbed off. The set is not very loud and will need restoration. It does pick up a few stations however. It has a replacement center screw that holds battery lid on fine.  $125.00. (2430055)

Project radio does work a bit but squeals a bit too. It's not as loud as it should. It'll need a good servicing. The cabinet has some wear and age to it and a crack top left on the front edge.  $20.00. (2430075)
