Silvertone 6405 (1939)

Silvertone 6405 (1939)
I should have thrown this radio away. Any other restorer would have. It had a piece broken out of the top, the back cover was missing, it had two bad tubes, and it is not a valuable radio. But just look at it. It is so darn cute! Reminded me of a 4'-11" cheerleader from high school named Cheryl. Despite 15 hours of hard work, my patch of the broken cover is not very good. I had to make the back cover, but it is an accurate reproduction of the original. These shiny Bakelite radios are extremely difficult to photograph. The finish on the remainder of the cabinet is very nice, and looks like a brown Bakelite walnut tinted cabinet should look. The front and top photos are reasonably close color wise. All new capacitors and resistors and a full alignment. Picks up local stations on its internal antenna, but has an external antenna connection for more distant stations. I'm going to lose my shirt on this radio. Somebody please prove I was right to save it. Come on. You know you love it. 8"W x 5-1/2"H x 5"D.  $159.00. (1680032)
