Bulova 670 "Super 6"

Bulova 670 "Super 6"

Offered here is a beautiful six-transistor shirt pocket radio from Bulova that is sometimes referred to as the "bow tie" radio. Cosmetically, the face and grille are perfect and the black cabinet is chip and crack free. Inside, it is clean also. This radio was designed to take a battery that is now obsolete so it is a display item. Petite at only 3-1/4"H x 2-1/4"W x 1"D. $55.00. (0520588)

 

Hitachi TH-800

Hitachi TH-800

Here is a rare and unique radio from Hitachi. It is the handsome TH-800 eight-transistor AM radio from Hitachi of Tokyo. This radio is chip and crack free. The black cabinet and large silver grille look fantastic together. It plays great with strong volume and clear sound on four common "AA" batteries that fit neatly into its cartridge. The unique feature of this radio is the auto tuning mechanism which is in proper working order. There is a key on the right side that you use to wind the tuner up (much like winding a clock), and that powers the auto tuner. It finds the stations for you. It has a switch on the back to help the tuner that can be set to either local, medium, or distant sensitivity. This is a powerful radio with 300 MW of output. Includes the original carrying case that shows wear. 8"W x 3-1/2"H. $95.00. (0520585)

 

Zenith Royal 55 Speaker Box and Radio

Zenith Royal 55 Speaker Box and Radio

Offered here is a rare Zenith Royal 55 speaker box complete with the radio. These speaker boxes were offered for a short time in 1960 with the intent of giving the shirt pocket-sized Royal 50 a bigger table radio sound, and it worked, but it was not popular because everyone already had a table radio. These speaker boxes proved to be a fragile item with thin plastic feet and a top-heavy design, especially with the radio inserted. Therefore, most of these have sustained substantial damage with very few have survived in collector condition. So here you can get the speaker box and the matching Royal 50 in fine playing condition. Click here to hear the radio play with and without the speaker box. $395.00. (0520587)

 

Zenith Royal 900 Table/Portable

Zenith Royal 900 Table/Portable

Offered here is a rare Zenith Royal 900 in the attractive two-tone White and Champaign color combination. This beauty is the cleanest example of this model that I have seen. Just look at the usual problem areas; the battery box, the gold face, the carrying handle, the bottom feet. Was it used at all? I inserted the required eight "C" cells long enough to test this powerhouse and I was pleased. The chassis is clean and all original and still it remains in peak operating condition. No chips, no cracks, and collector clean, it is just missing the bright for the tuning knob. To hear it play, click here. $375.00. (0520586)

About Gary's Vintage Gems from the North
About me: I have been interested in transistor radios for as long as I can remember, but a collector of them for over 20 years now. During that time, I have become knowledgeable and learned how to judge quality and what it takes for a radio to become a desirable collectible.

My Mission: It is my mission to offer top quality collectible transistor radios that are clean, functional, and highly desirable. I take measures to assure each one reaches a high level of cleanliness and performance before it is listed. I will try to give you a clear idea of what you are buying so that you can judge the value before you make that purchase. But if in doubt, please feel free to ask any questions before buying.

Living up to my mission statement is how I have been able to sell over 500 transistor radios in almost ten years on the attic. My clients are generally those who desire high quality and know that by dealing with me, they won't receive surprises or waste money by dealing with novice sellers on auctions.
TERMS

Payments:  Using PayPal will assure that your radio will be shipped within 24 hours.  If you prefer, I will also accept money orders or personal checks, but your personal check must clear before I ship.

Shipping:  I use the utmost care in preparing your gem for its trip from the north to you, but the cost of shipping is in addition to the price shown.  I have found that USPS Priority Mail is the most economical way to ship your new radio to you, but I am glad to use a different carrier when requested.

Questions?  In addition to the pictures, I will try to give each radio a clear description detailing the make, model, year, size, cosmetic and playing condition, battery requirements, and any accessories that are included.  If you still have questions, feel free to ask them before purchasing and I will do my best to answer them.

Returns:  If all efforts fail and a return is requested, I will be glad to refund the full purchase price of the radio once it is safely returned at the buyers expense.
