I saw and was amazed at the age of six, by my very first look and listening to the sound of a Zenith 12S245 motorized drive Shutterdial radio. I continue to be amazed with radios all these years later. Keeping them out of the landfill and in the hands of collectors to admire them is my goal!

We can modify all of the radios to have an alt/input device with a 3.5mm cord for $30.

Admiral employed over 6,000 workers in its Chicago plant in the company's heyday. This Bakelite radio is a six-tube AM/SW swirl of color. The radio has great sound. It is recapped, resistors checked, aligned, and new power cord. It has a factory back cover. $159.00. (1830011)

 

Airline 04BR-511A

Airline 04BR-511A

A small five-tube radio, with awesome tuning! I rebuilt this radio in Portland, OR. Normally I wouldn't expect much in the way of reception from a radio this size. Wow, I picked up stations ranging from Calgary to Los Angeles. Impressive, very sensitive tuning and great sound. All out of tolerance components replaced. It retains its original cord. Small fracture on the bottom, but no chips and as the pictures show it's quite a stunning piece. $69.00. (1830024)

 

Delco 1107

Delco 1107

You may know AC Delco as an automotive radio company, but they made radios for the home as well. As dependable as a car radio had to be in the 1930's with primitive roads, the quality of their home radios was on the same standard. This radio receives AM, Shortwave and Police bands. It is quite a good performer! $275.00. (1830005)

NEW!

General 610SP (1938)

This is a General Radio manufactured by The Clinton Radio Company. In 1933, The Clinton Manufacturing Company opened for business at 128 N. Clinton Street. The president was Nathan Siegel, who owned Siegel Electrical Supply Company, located next door at 130 N. Clinton Street. He represented the CeCo line of vacuum tubes, among other products. In 1934, the business moved to 1217 W. Washington Blvd., across the street from the offices and studios of Chicago's power-house radio station WLS, and remained there until purchased (and absorbed) by Sonora Radio and Television Corporation in late 1938. This radio is a five-tube radio with a ballast tube. The radio has been restored by local rebuilder Blake Dietze, plays well across the AM/SW bands. All capacitors have been replaced, tubes tested and resistors checked. The radio has been stripped, toned and re-lacquered. This is a relatively rare radio and presents quite well. $349.00.

Silvertone 2015

Very stylish AM radio made from 1952-1956. This six-tube radio is recapped and plays very nicely. I discovered a hairline crack at the right side of the radio and have discounted the price accordingly. Prior to shipping I will superglue the crack inside the cabinet to stabilize it. It is hardly noticeable. $50.00. (1830008)

Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

NEW!

Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

The 6-D-030 was designed by Charles and Ray Eames. They created a low-cost process of "molding" plywood to create graceful angles and curves. They designed an award-winning chair that was on display in the Museum of Modern Art. For Zenith radio cabinets, they used existing Bakelite radios as molds, and the rest is history. This radio was designed to use available tubes after the war and uses a mix of tubes types. The 6-D-030 is a six-tube, AM only AC/DC set. The radio has been completely recapped. All of the resistors and tubes have been checked, and I replaced them where needed. The radio has been stripped and re-lacquered, new grille cloth and plastic dial cover have been added. The radio plays well across the dial with its builtin antenna. $389.00. (1830025)

 

Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

NEW!

Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

This is the famous Eames designed Zenith Radio. This AA6 radio is recapped and plays well across the band. This radio is unusual because it is a factory painted radio. I have not touched the cabinet, so it shows its nearly 80 year old finish and the price reflects that. $259.00. (1830027)

 

Zenith 6-D-525 (1941)

Zenith 6-D-525 (1941)

The Zenith 6D525 from 1941 is a six-tube AC/DC Superheterodyne radio with an untuned RF amplifier stage and Wavemagnet loop antenna. It only receives the AM Broadcast band. The cabinet is solid walnut, and affectionately known to some collectors as "The Toaster" due to the slots in the top and sides and its overall appearance. The case is an Ingraham creation, and this radio would be a fine addition to anyone's collection! $259.00. (1830021)

 

Zenith 7-S-432 (1940)

Zenith 7-S-432 (1940)

Built in 1939 for the 1940 lineup, this radio plays like a console in a tabletop case. It has a "wavemagnet" antenna and plays on both the AM and Shortwave bands. the cabinet has a blend of Walnut and faux veneers and this radio has survived all this time with its faux veneer intact. $325.00. (1830022)

 

Zenith 808

Zenith 808

The pictures speak for themselves! This is one of the finest Art Deco designs offered by Zenith. This is a six-tube radio that receives AM and shortwave. It does require an antenna. The transformer radio has been electronically restored and a fuse has been added. Every Zenith collector should have one of these fine radios. $599.00. (1830006)
