Admiral 4B21

Admiral 4B21

Great shape, no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines, just minor wear. It's a tube set, insides look great. It comes on but buzzes with no stations. What a cool radio to fix though. Leather case is in nice shape but strap is torn.  $100.00. (2430004)

 

Admiral Y2009

Admiral Y2009

Project radio. Radio just has static and is missing battery holder/tube. It has general wear and age inside and out but has no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines.  $20.00. (2430052)

 

Bulova 620

NEW!

Bulova 620

A really nicely designed set. No cracks or chips or hairlines. This radio does have plenty of wear including some coin-slot wear. There are scratches and scuffs and what appears to be a phone number scratched into handle. I detailed the lettering back and this radio really pops. It does work, but not really well and mostly static and scratchiness and popping when moving dial. It'll need some restoration electronically to make it play like new again.  $100.00. (2430048)

 

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

NEW!

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 6503

Channel Master 6503

Project radio just has light static presently. It also has a tiny eyelash hairline at the "E" in "Channel Master" on the top front and an about 1/4" chip bottom left. Otherwise it looks nice and solid with just light wear.  $20.00. (2430056)

 

Channel Master 6506

NEW!

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)

 

Crown TR-670

NEW!

Crown TR-670

Project radio just has faint static. It is in good shape but has a hairline top right and grille is concave. Still, a rare beauty. Leather case in decent shape but torn on right.  $100.00. (2430057)

 

Deluxe Boy's Radio

Deluxe Boy's Radio

Radio not working presently, just static. It has no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines, just melt marks from vinyl case it had at one time (no longer) and someone made a small hole on back for external power (no external power now).  $20.00. (2430006)

 

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 P716B

NEW!

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-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)

 

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)

 

GM Sportsman Transistor 6

GM Sportsman Transistor 6

Project radio not working and volume knob shows lots of wear. It also has a couple little chips on the bottom corners. It still looks amazing - splendid. Leather case is in great shape, super cool.  $30.00. (2430002)

 

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)

 

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)

 

Magnavox 2-AM-60

Magnavox 2-AM-60

Radio not working presently but is super clean. No cracks or chips or dents or hairlines and is clean inside and out. It makes no sound. Leather case in poor shape.  $20.00. (2430060)

 

Magnavox 2-AM-80

Magnavox 2-AM-80

Project radio but in great shape with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. I can't get it to work and tuning dial slips. Radio takes a Mallory M1611 or equivalent 9-volt cylindrical battery.  $10.00. (2430061)

 

Marvel 6YR-02

Marvel 6YR-02

Project radio; not working and has a chip (3/4" by 3/8") top left and hairline bottom left. Battery connector is coming off. Leather case is in nice shape.  $15.00. (2430014)

 

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)

 

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)

 

NEC NTF-901

NEW!

NEC NTF-901

A really bizarre, solid and heavy set. This project radio does work on both bands however AM buzzes mostly, very strange noises and FM works pretty well actually. The volume knob is very touchy. The radio is actually very clean and no cracks or chips or dents. It comes with leather case (poor shape) and box with lots of wear. Also included are the instructions, strap, earphone and earphone case. This is one cool looking radios I've had. It's definitely worth restoring!  $60.00. (2430063)

 

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

NEW!

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)

 

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 8-BT-8FE

RCA Victor 8-BT-8FE

RCA Victor 8-BT-9E

NEW!

RCA Victor 8-BT-9E

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)

 

RCA RGM-19E

RCA RGM-19E

Nice set; clean with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Antenna clips into place as it should, very solid build. AM works great and FM just has static.  $30.00. (2430026)

 

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

NEW!

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)

 

Sanyo 8S-P2 AM/SW

Sanyo 8S-P2 AM/SW

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

Silvertone 1205

Project radio; a really nice one that has no cracks or chips or hairlines. Bottom left of grille has a little dent that you can push out if it bothers you. The radio doesn't work but internals look untampered with and clean.  $30.00. (2430064)

Top-Flight Boy's Radio

Top-Flight Boy's Radio

Radio only has static so it'll need a re-cap to get it to perform like it should. Clean radio though with no cracks or chips or dents or hairlines. Some minor melts on the back from vinyl case (not included). The plastic could be buffed out with Novus if you wanted to make it look more like new.  $40.00. (2430034)

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)

Transette TRN-60A

Transette TRN-60A

Project radio in near NOS shape, just a little rubbing from taking it out of leather case. It's all in such wonderful shape--leather case, leather earphone case, earphone (in bag, new). Unfortunately it doesn't work well; just faint stations held up to ear. Box is in good shape overall.  $75.00. (2430039)

 

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)

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)
