Bulova 620 (1957)

NEW!

Bulova 620 (1957)

Offered here is this early four-transistor offering from the Bulova Watch Company in Flushing NY. This 1957 model is sometimes referred to as the "Comet" because of its unique space age design. This red version is in excellent condition as the cabinet has no chips or cracks and minimum scratching. The brass carrying handle is beautiful and without bends. This radio was designed to operate on a large 9 volt battery, but modern ones work just fine. The battery clip has split into two halves, and should be replaced if you desire, but it still works fine as is. This will get lots of attention once you add it to your display. Clean in and out, don't miss this one. The radio picks up local stations with plenty of volume. Click here for more information and to listen to this play. $185.00. (0520630)

 

Bulova 670

Bulova 670

Offered here is this sharp looking micro radio from Bulova. The bright gold face and the Jewel in the starburst make this real eye candy for your collection, and the delicate gold face is like a mirror and without scratches! Untested; 2-3/4"H. $65.00. (0520619)

 

Motorola 6X32E (1957)

Motorola 6X32E (1957)

This early six-transistor radio from Motorola features GE Top Hat transistors and is built like a tank. This measures 6-1/2" wide and operates on four "AA" batteries.

One for your top shelf. Click here for more information and pictures. $195.00. (0520631)

 

Zenith Royal 20 Micro (1966)

Zenith Royal 20 Micro (1966)

Zenith Royal 500A (1956)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 500A (1956)

Offered here in original cosmetic condition is this hand wired Zenith Royal 500A from early 1956. This beautiful example has the rare translucent "see through" cabinet and has no chips or cracks and only shows minor signs of wear. The electronics of this radio have been professionally serviced and it is now playing better than ever. It uses four "AA" batteries and has a clean battery box. This is truly a fine piece that you can either add to the top shelf of your collection or you can enjoy it each morning at the breakfast table to keep up with the daily news. It is picking up all my local stations plus many distant ones. The 7XT40Z1 chassis has an early serial #26,243. If you have been looking to add a rare Zenith in excellent condition to your collection, then your search is over. Click here for more pictures and information. $595.00. (0520629)

 

Zenith Royal 675G (1962)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 675G (1962)

Here is a Zenith Royal 675 lunchbox portable radio from 1962 in very nice condition. By 1962, Zenith had stopped making leather portables, and this radio sports the "Permawear" exterior which just did not hold up well. It is unusual to find one in this nice condition now days. It is all original and obviously has resided in my collection for many years. This is a fully functional radio that measures 8-1/2" wide. It plays strong on four "C" batteries. Inside is a clean original chassis and a clean battery tube. This model features the high-output G chassis and is an impressive player. Click here for more information and to listen to it play. $75.00. (0520627)

 

Zenith Royal 750 (1957)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 750 (1957)

Offered here is the Zenith Royal 750 leather lunchbox portable from 1957. This radio features the gold metal grille design similar to the cars of that same time frame. This was Zenith's first in their series of lunchbox portable radios and unlike later radios, the exterior is genuine leather. This radio is in very good used condition with no defects. It could use a cleaning but the insides are all original and this still plays well. It is powered by six "C" batteries. Click here for more information. $75.00. (0520628)

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.
