Crosley 124 "Playboy" (1932)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Crosley 124 "Playboy" (1932)

The 124 Playboy was a fairly good seller for Crosley in the early 30s. It has a large, substantial look to it. They used the space for a very good sounding 8-inch speaker and a well designed chassis. If I had known then what I know now I would have scrapped this one. I had to replace the veneer over the arch, make the tube cover and chassis metal pan. I had to paint the chassis. My genius nephew-in-law 3-D printed the escutcheon for me. The top had a tiny bit of ripple which I didn't notice, so when I wet sanded the ten base coats of semigloss, I wound up with that showing through the otherwise nice, slick finish. It isn't as bad as the photo booth lighting made it look in the top photo. It has the early 30s antenna type volume control, so you have to crank it up to get weak stations. Requires an external antenna. It has some shortcomings and I'm pricing it accordingly, but it is still a pretty darn cool radio. 17"W x 17"H x 11"D.  $300.00. (1680127)
