General Electric A70 Tombstone (1935)


General Electric A70 Tombstone (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
I don't know what determines the value of a radio, but I consider this "nothing short of incredible" GE A70 to be the best bargain on my web site. 1935 was the first year of GE making their own radios after the government forced the breakup with RCA. GE was determined to be competitive with RCA, and they threw the works into this set. It has an absolutely ingenious, very brightly lit, cylindrical robotic dial for no-hassle tuning. The tuning drive is an equally ingenious combination of clutch and planetary drive so you can fast tune just past your station and fine tune at 5:1 without removing your hand from the knob. It has a fabulous, perfect 8-inch speaker, and the sound is crazy good. The very nice condition chassis is well designed and built like a brick outhouse. The cabinet is ornate and classy. The near perfect finish is slick and gorgeous, among my very best. All new caps, resistors as necessary and a full alignment. Original grille cloth. Broadcast and two short wave bands. Requires an external antenna. $1000 performance for under $500. I feel confident you won't be disappointed. 20-1/2"H x 15"W x 12"D.
