I have been running a radio repair & restoration business (Radio Revival) for twenty years.  I am the son of an old time Radio & TV repairman and grew up helping in the business.  I am still using a lot of his inventory.  Every radio that is saved from the land fill and put back to work is a piece of American History!  My collection has gotten out of hand and it is time to thin the herd and share the wealth.  Click here for my seller's terms and to learn about my restorations.
 

 

Arvin 518WD "Phantom Pal" (1938)

Arvin 518WD "Phantom Pal" (1938)

Here is a nicely restored, painted (Ivory & Mahogany) wood table radio from the Arvin Phantom series. It is a five-tube AM/SW radio that has a tone control and a band switch. The "Phantom" dial lights up in red, yellow and green when turned on and you can read the numbers to tune in a station. It has been restored electronically and the cord replaced for safety. It has a nice sound and will pick up many stations if you attach it to a long wire antenna. 9"H x 8-1/2"W x 7"D. $224.99. (1700010)

 

Jewel 960 (1950)

Jewel 960 (1950)

Here is a five-tube AM table radio from the Jewel Radio Corp. of New York City. It is circa 1950 and has that mid-century modern style to it. It has a dark brown case with the original back, knobs and cord. I went through the chassis and replaced weak tubes, filters, and caps. The controls were lubed and cleaned and the set was aligned as well. It plays out on local stations with its built-in antenna with a mellow tube sound. It has a screw on the back for attaching a long wire antenna if you want more reception. This would make a great decorator radio, or play it at home or office. 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D. $74.99. (1700019)

 

Philco 47-204 (1947)

Philco 47-204 (1947)

Here is a nice Philco Southwestern style five-tube AM radio that features a leatherette clad wood case. This was the fad right after the WWII and this is a nice example. The original back shows "Philco" as a cut out on it. The plastic grille is usually warped on these radios, but this one is in fine shape! I put a new polarized cord on it and it has had new filters, audio caps and tubes renewed as needed. It has a built-in antenna and picks up stations with a nice mellow tube sound. 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $99.00. (1700017)

 

RCA 5X (1936)

RCA 5X (1936)

A nice wood table radio with "Cabinetry by RCA Victor" seal. Book matched walnut front, rounded sides, top louvers. Has been professionally refinished front & back. Five-tube set with AM & SW bands. AM lights dial on top, SW lights on bottom. Electronically restored and has original antenna hank for long distance reception. 12"W x 9"H x 6"D. $225.00. (1700008)

 

RCA Victor 75X18 "Oriental" (1948)

RCA Victor 75X18 "Oriental" (1948)

Here is a five-tube set from RCA that has a very unique Bakelite case. It is painted Mandarin red and has hand painted lacquered Oriental scenes on the top and sides as well as under the dial cover. The main scene on top is a man flying a kite over a bridge. It has brass trim and dial needle cover. The dial lights up and the pointer shows red when on to point to the stations. The paint is original and shows some marks here and there and a smear on the top that looks like it was touched up. This radio came in white, black and red versions with each scene being hand painted on each radio. No two are exactly alike. It has been gone through electronically and plays out fine with a built-in antenna. There is a provision to attach a long wire antenna for even more reception. More a piece of art than a radio! 10"W x 7-1/2"H x 8"D. $199.00. (1700014)

 

Stewart-Warner 91-51 WT (1938)

Stewart-Warner 91-51 WT (1938)

Here is an Art Deco styled five-tube set from Stewart-Warner. It picks up AM only. It features a stepped and louvered walnut case by Ingraham with the original finish (has a few nicks here and there). Two knobs & four pushbuttons with the original station tabs (St. Louis area). It has a new cord for safety and will need a long wire antenna for reception. It has the original wood back. It has been electronically restored and has a nice mellow tube sound! 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D. $249.00. (1700007)

 

Westinghouse H-435T5 (1955)

Westinghouse H-435T5 (1955)

This is an nice ivory plastic & gold trim five-tube AM radio from the Westinghouse Radio Division in Pennsylvania. It is a "Dual Speaker" and has two 4-inch diameter speakers in it. The case has one tight hairline on the top front edge. I went through this radio and replaced weak tubes, filters, and caps. It has has the controls lubed and cleaned. It has been aligned as well. It has all original knobs, back and cord. This radio plays out fine with its built-in antenna and twin speakers. It would make a nice kitchen radio or take it to work and show it off! 11-1/2"W x 7"H x 6"D. $74.99. (1700020)

My Terms of Sale

Prices listed do not include shipping.  If you value the radio you just bought, please insure it.  I ship by USPS (my wife is a Postmaster!) and you will pay actual shipping costs to your location.  I do not charge for safe packing and handling.

I accept PayPal (preferred), personal checks, or money orders.  I will wait for checks to clear before shipping, otherwise I will ship as soon as I get your funds.  If you don't pay after five days, the radio will be relisted for sale again on the website.

I will ship to US addresses only unless a prior arrangement has been made.

Radios are as described and photographed.  Buyers are encouraged to ask any and all questions about my radios.  If the radio does not suit you upon arrival and use, I will accept a return within seven days.  It must be sent back in original packing and in the same condition that I sent it to you.  Buyers are responsible for return shipping and insurance costs.

I have been packing and shipping radios for twenty years.  Depending on weight and size, they will normally be wrapped in bubble wrap, boxed, placed in another box surrounded by peanuts at least 1"-2" on all sides.

Refinishing and Restoration

"Professionally refinished" in my descriptions means that I have had my radios refinished by refinishers that have been doing radios for me for many years.  The cabinets and knobs (if wood) have been stripped.  The cabinets are repaired and veneer replaced if needed.  The wood grain is filled, color matched as close to original as possible.  A matte or semi-gloss finish is used depending on the radios.  Original grille cloth is used if good, otherwise a older replacement or reproduction is used.  Dial covers are replaced if discolored or cracked.

"Electronically restored" in my descriptions means that I have checked all the tubes and lights and replaced them if needed.  I replace the filters, high voltage and audio capacitors, and out of tolerance resistors.  The controls are cleaned and lubricated or replaced if needed.  Speakers are repaired or re-coned if needed.  The cord and plug are checked for safety and replaced if needed.  I align the sets as well.  I do not restore or repaint the chassis or remove original parts mounted on it.  I repair radios for sale the exact way I repair them for customers that come in the door and for my collection as well.
