Crosley 58 "Buddy Boy" Repwood (1931)


Crosley 58 "Buddy Boy" Repwood (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here is a very hard to find radio. It is actually the industry's first attempt at plastics. "Repwood" is actually a composite not unlike Bakelite, but as you can see it is way thicker (about 1/2" or more) and it is very heavy. The radio circuit is a TRF neutrodyne five-tube arrangement. All capacitors and resistors have been replaced (brand new caps re-stuffed into the original metal housings). The radio plays loud and clear, my guarantee applies. It has all globe tubes (yes even the 280 and 245)! Just like the ones that were supplied with it in 1931. The chassis tag says Model 54, but it is basically the same chassis as the 58, but the cabinet is a 58. Since it was manufactured during the Depression, the factory could have made this switch because I have seen others like it. 16"W x 16"H x 10"D and a very heavy 50 pounds when packed in double boxes and lots of padding. I can deliver it anywhere between Olympia, Bellingham and Yakima WA (subject to my schedule) or if you can wait till September as far south as Portland OR. I have it priced to sell.
