Bulova 2YC-23 (1959)


Bulova 2YC-23 (1959)
The very first radio I bought was one identical to this seven-transistor Bulova; that was in 1959. Cost me $60, which was a lot for a high school student back then (I lost it along the way). I bought this as a memento, and it works on AM using internal antenna, but needs a whip or wire antenna for SW. Tuning is "scratchy" at places; would benefit from a tuneup. It is missing the leather case, whip antenna and nut at the antenna port. Has what looks like a cigarette burn near the antenna port. I found another with the case and antenna and had it rebuilt, so this is an extra. I think it is a rare radio. Except for the burn is in excellent condition and quite heavy. Nice chrome front. Uses four "AA" batteries. 6"W x 3-1/4"H x 1-5/8"D.  $59.95. (1030263)
All my radios include an aux input cable so you can play your favorite tunes or Old Time Radio shows using CD player, computer, iPod, etc. They are installed with no damage to the chassis or cabinet. A high quality Bluetooth receiver is included for free ($25 value) so you can stream tunes from your phone, laptop, etc. This is a very popular option, and has range of about 30 feet. I will remove the cable if you don't want it.
