The Better Bluetooth Solution

A built-in Bluetooth adaptor is now available on all my radios for an extra charge of $25. My built-in Bluetooth solution is completely hidden inside the chassis, and is self-switching. When you pair your source and play music, the radio automatically switches to Bluetooth. When you stop your Bluetooth source, it automatically reverts to functioning as a normal radio. No switches, dongles, cables, or external power sources needed. This is Bluetooth done right!
 

 

Airline 62-425 "Indian Head" (1936)

Airline 62-425 "Indian Head" (1936)

Running out of space to display your collection? Here's a nice little one that leaves plenty of space for other radios. This Airline is sometimes called the "Indian Head" because of the shape of the grille cutout. The cabinet has been refinished; knobs and escutcheon are original. The handle on top appears not to be original, but is very old and was installed in a professional manner. The five-tube single band chassis has had a full electronic restoration and works like new, with strong tubes, new capacitors throughout, new resistors where needed, and a full RF/IF alignment. A new cloth vintage-style power cord has been provided along with a real vintage plug. A fuse has been added for improved safety. Sensitivity and sound quality are good for such a small package. Lighted dial. A small one like this won't cost much to ship. Bluetooth available. 10-1/2"W x 7-1/4"H x 6-1/4"D. $245.00. (1310098)

 

Atwater Kent 567 Cathedral (1932)

Atwater Kent 567 Cathedral (1932)

Atwater Kent made the best quality radios in the early 1930s. The quality is everywhere -- in the sturdy nickel plated chassis, the latest and best circuitry for the time, the great-sounding paper cone speaker with cloth surround, the silky smooth tuning dial, and the outstanding cabinet design with its fine veneers and carvings. This one retains its original grille cloth, knobs, escutcheon, and dial. The cabinet has been lovingly refinished to bring out the beauty of the front panel walnut book veneer, the diagonal grain walnut arch, and the full walnut veneer on the sides and top (most others used cheap wood here). The chassis has had a full restoration with all new capacitors, new resistors where needed, a strong set of tubes, new wiring, a rebuilt rubber tuning drive wheel, and a perfect RF/IF alignment. The circuit is a seven-tube superhet, with superb sensitivity and sound quality. AVC was still one year in the future, so this radio has an earlier feel to its operation. The original speaker is in perfect condition. A new vintage style power cord has been installed (with the original plug) and a fuse added for safety. Tone control and lighted dial. 19"H x 16"W x 10"D. $795.00. (1310100)

 

Emerson 706B (1953)

NEW!

Emerson 706B (1953)

Emerson made some of the most compact tube radios over the years. This example is only 5 inches wide, but houses a complete All American Five chassis with a 4-inch speaker. The cabinet is grey injection molded plastic, a material just coming into widespread use in the early 1950s. The cabinet is free of any damage and has a good original surface finish. The chassis has been fully restored, with all new capacitors, several new resistors, a good set of tubes, and a complete RF/IF alignment. Like any well-aligned five-tube radio that leaves my shop, it performs like new, with excellent sensitivity, good sound quality, and no performance issues of any kind. The small knob on the lower right is the on/off volume control, and the circular star pattern in the lower left of the grille is the pilot light. This very compact radio will be inexpensive to ship. 6-1/2"H x 5"W x 5"D. $120.00. (1310102)

 

Emerson 805B (1954)

NEW!

Emerson 805B (1954)

Here is another example of Emerson's very compact five-tube radios. It's only 6-1/2 inches wide, but houses a complete All American Five chassis with a 4-inch speaker. The dark brown Bakelite cabinet is free of any chips or cracks, and has a decent original shine. Although you see many other Bakelite radios which have been clear coated to give them an artificially glossy shine, the original Bakelite surface is far more durable than any clear coat, so it will hold up much better and look better a lot longer. The chassis has had a full electrical restoration, with all new capacitors, several new resistors, both IF transformers rebuilt, and a full RF/IF alignment. A new polarized power cord has been installed, and the switch wiring has been modified to keep any voltage off the chassis or exposed screws for improved safety. This radio works like new, and you may be surprised how good the sensitivity of a well-aligned five-tube radio can be. This small and light radio will be very inexpensive to ship. 6-1/2"W x 5-1/4"H x 5"D. $85.00. (1310104)

 

General Electric F-70 AM-SW (1937)

General Electric F-70 AM-SW (1937)

This General Electric table radio looks and sounds great. Bands of Zebrawood veneer provide an attractive decorative accent, and solid walnut louvers add depth to the speaker grille. Knobs, escutcheon, and grille cloth are original; the cabinet has been refinished nicely and a new crystal clear dial window has been installed. There is a touch of corrosion visible here and there on the metal dial. The dial on this radio is a bit of a mechanical wonder, with four different pointers for tuning, band selection, volume, and tone. The tuning mechanism has a fast/slow vernier action. The seven-tube chassis has an extra IF stage for excellent sensitivity, which is noticeable on both AM and short wave. The 8-inch speaker really sounds good, with quite respectable bass and good treble. The chassis has had a full electrical restoration, with all new capacitors, new resistors where needed, and a full IF/RF alignment. Almost all of the tubes are the original GE tubes. A new vintage-style power cord and plug have been installed, and a fuse has been added for better safety. Lighted dial. My "Better Bluetooth" option is available. 20-3/4"W x 10-1/2"H x 9"D. $275.00. (1310099)

 

Motorola 5R12AU (1951)

NEW!

Motorola 5R12AU (1951)

This cute little Motorola still looks great in its original factory ivory paint job, with just a few nicks visible on the left and right sides. The checkerboard grille and big red tuning knob make this radio a bit of an eye catcher. The chassis has been thoroughly restored, with all new capacitors, many new resistors, a new speaker, a silicon rectifier to replace the original selenium, and a full alignment so that it works like new. Sensitivity and sound quality are impressive for such a small radio. It's small and light enough that shipping will be inexpensive. 8-1/4"W x 5"H x 5"D. $95.00. (1310101)

 

Packard Bell 5R1 (1954)

NEW!

Packard Bell 5R1 (1954)

As the price of radios fell in the late 1940s and 50s, many families bought inexpensive table radios like this one for the kitchen, bedroom, or workshop. This Packard Bell has a black Bakelite cabinet with a good-as-new original Bakelite shine (no clearcoating) and houses an "All American Five" chassis that has been fully restored to perform like new. Restoration included a strong set of tubes, all new capacitors, several new resistors, and a complete RF/IF alignment. A new polarized power cord was installed, and the power switch wiring was changed to take advantage of the polarized cord for improved safety. Like every radio that leaves my shop, it works as well as the day it was made, with great sensitivity and good sound quality. This is a fairly small and light radio, so shipping will be reasonable. 9-1/4"W x 6"H x 5-1/4"D. $95.00. (1310103)

 

Philco 49-906 AM/FM (1949)

Philco 49-906 AM/FM (1949)

Here's an affordable classic Bakelite AM/FM radio for your collection. The cabinet is all original and has not been clearcoated. A few light scratches are visible on top, but there are no chips or cracks anywhere. The reverse-painted dial has a few wrinkles you can see in the pictures. The seven-tube chassis has had a full restoration and works like new, with all new capacitors, new resistors where needed, a strong set of tubes, and a full RF/IF alignment with sweep generator on AM and FM. A new power cord has been installed and a fuse has been added for improved safety. AM reception is impressive, with great sensitivity to pull in distant stations, and FM performance is decent as well. The white wire coming out of the back is the FM antenna. This radio has a nice bright 120 V dial lamp. 14-1/2"W x 9"H x 8-3/4"D. $149.00. (1310096)

 

Silvertone 4563 AM-SW (1936)

Silvertone 4563 AM-SW (1936)

Sears introduced a line of Silvertone radios with beautiful gold dials in honor of their golden (50th) anniversary in 1936. The embossed gold dial is particularly striking when viewing in a darkened room. The diagonal grained walnut veneered cabinet is tasteful and attractive. The cabinet has been refinished; knobs, escutcheon, and grille cloth are original. The five-tube three-band chassis has been thoroughly restored and works like new, with a strong set of tubes, new capacitors throughout, new resistors where needed, and a full RF/IF alignment. A new vintage-style cloth power cord has been installed, with the original vintage plug preserved. A fuse has been added for improved safety. This radio has a tone control and lighted dial. Bluetooth available. 16"W x 10"H x 9-1/4"D. $375.00. (1310097)
