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.
 

 

Admiral 15-D5 (1940)

NEW!

Admiral 15-D5 (1940)

This is a Deco streamline design from Admiral. It is a five-tube, AM only set. It has a dark brown Bakelite case with no cracks or chips. It has the original back and knobs. The cord has been checked for safety. The back says "Super Aeroscope Spiderweb Antenna Concealed." A mysterious way of saying it has a built-in antenna! It also has a connection for a long wire antenna. I went through the chassis and replaced weak tubes, filters, caps, and resistors. It plays out with a nice mellow tube sound. This would make a nice addition to your collection or just listen to ball games on it this summer! 10-1/2"W x 7"H x 6"D. $190.00. (1700049)

 

Admiral 248 (1958)

NEW!

Admiral 248 (1958)

Here is a little five-tube AM only radio from Admiral. It was probably sold through the Spiegel mail order catalog. It features a turquoise and ivory colored plastic case that is in the minimalist mid-century modern style popular in the 50's. It has the original knobs and cord. The case has no cracks, chips, or hairlines. It has a built-in Ferrite antenna. I checked out the chassis and noticed that a couple of tubes and an IF transformer had been replaced in the past and everything else was on spec. I cleaned and lubed the controls and re-aligned it as well. It plays out on local stations with a nice tube sound. This would make a great addition to your retro 50's kitchen or home decor. 11"W x 5-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D. $49.99. (1700051)

 

Arvin 502 (1939)

NEW!

Arvin 502 (1939)

Here is a small Deco painted metal radio from Arvin. It has five tubes and is AM only. The metal case is painted ivory and has some paint chips here and there. The bottom of the case shows some surface rust. It has the original knobs and metal back. It has an antenna "hank" of wound up wire that picks up local stations that can be attached to for more distance. I went through the chassis and replaced the filters, caps and weak tubes. It has a new polarized cord for safety and it has been aligned as well. It plays out with a nice mellow tube sound. 8"W x 5-1/2"H x 5"D. $179.99. (1700048)

 

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)

 

Crosley D-25-GN "Dashboard" Clock Radio (1953)

NEW!

Crosley D-25-GN "Dashboard" Clock Radio (1953)

Here is the iconic 50's "Dashboard" radio from Crosley. It is AM only, has a built in antenna with provision for hooking a long wire to it for more reception. It has the look of a car dashboard's instruments back in the day. It has a slate green painted Bakelite case and is all original including paint, knobs, back and cord. The gold plating is very good, even showing some on the high use knobs. There are a few "flea bites" in the painted case. I went through the chassis and clock, replacing caps, tubes and aligning the set. I lubed the clock and cleaned the radio controls. The clock has an alarm feature which allows you to plug an appliance into the side and have it come on at a set time. The clock hands are luminous for night viewing. These radios came in an assortment of colors and this might be the one you are missing in your collection! It plays out with a nice mellow tube sound. 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D. $300.00. (1700050)

 

General Electric C3300A "Peter Max" Clock Radio (1969)

General Electric C3300A "Peter Max" Clock Radio (1969)

Hey Man! Far out! At least it was in the 60's! This is a small AM solid state clock radio from General Electric. GE commissioned Peter Max to design clocks for them in the late 60's and this was the only clock radio he did. Labeling the clock and radio in script was neat and I also thought using a finger for a pointer to stations was never done before. This radio has no cracks, chips or hairlines. It plays out fine with a good sound from the speaker on the side. The clock works quietly and keeps good time. It can also be used as an alarm. Unlike most clock radios of the day, the time can be set from the front. This would make a nice conversation piece or listen to the Beatles on it this summer! 8"W x 5-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D. $199.99. (1700045)

 

General Electric H-500 "Turbine" (1939)

NEW!

General Electric H-500 "Turbine" (1939)

Here is a small five-tube AM only radio from the General Electric Co. This features a machine age design from the 30's; it has been called the "Turbine" but I see locomotive motifs in it as well. It has a lit up thumbwheel dial that adds to its look. The Bakelite is swirled brown & black and takes a nice shine. There are no cracks, chips or hairlines in the case. It has the original knobs and back (which is missing a piece). I went through the chassis replacing weak tubes, caps, filters and the cord for safety. It has been aligned. It needs a long wire antenna for reception although it will pick up close local stations without it. It plays with a nice mellow tube sound. 9"W x 6"H x 5"D. $200.00. (1700047)

 

Kadette 66X (1936)

Kadette 66X (1936)

Here is a six-tube International Kadette 66X. It has AM-SW bands, but the SW doesn't have much on it these days. It has a bright dial light, the original knobs and no back. It will need a long wire antenna to operate. It has been refinished, has a new cord for safety, and a new grille cloth. It has been recapped, tubes replaced as needed, and has been aligned. The dial cover has been repaired at some time in its life. This would make a nice radio for home or office. 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7"D. $200.00. (1700035)

 

Silvertone 7000 "Lefty" (1941)

Silvertone 7000 "Lefty" (1941)

Here is a radio for you "lefties" out there. It is a five-tube AM only small Bakelite radio. This radio was actually made by Arvin which made a few lefty radios. It is hard to find a dial on the upper left of the front case on any radio of this vintage. This "walnut" Bakelite case has no cracks, chips or hairlines and takes a nice shine. I went through it electronically and replaced filters, caps, and weak tubes and it was aligned as well. It has a built in "Radionet," an antenna on the back, which was a big deal for small radios in 1941. There was an "onyx" or beetle version of this set which is harder to find. It plays out with a nice mellow tube sound. 8"W x 6"H x 5"D. $190.00. (1700046)

 

Trav-Ler 5028A (1947)

Trav-Ler 5028A (1947)

Here is a little portable battery-AC five-tube set. It is AM only. It has a red "alligator" cloth covered case that shows tears in several places. The grille and knobs are actually white. The photos were taken in late afternoon sunlight which makes them look yellow. It has a built-in antenna and good handle. It plays out well. This would make a nice addition to your small radio collection or listen to the Super Bowl on it! 9"W x 5"H x 5"D. $50.00. (1700039)

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.
