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.

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)

 

Airline 62-150 (1934)

NEW!

Airline 62-150 (1934)

This Airline 62-150 is a nice medium sized AM/SW tombstone. The radio was made for the Montgomery Wards Company The radio has Maple and other veneers. I have refinished the radio, replaced the grille cloth with a period appropriate piece. The knobs are originals. The trim and design are an elegant reminder of the Radio's Art Deco origins. The chassis has been gone through, a fuse has been added for safety. A mini/RCA plug has been added to allow an iPod or phone as an input device. The radio plays very well across the AM and SW bands. The radio requires an antenna for radio reception. 15"H x 13-1/2"W x 10"D. $499.00. (1830029)

 

Atwater Kent 82 (1931)

NEW!

Atwater Kent 82 (1931)

This is one of the most attractive cathedral radios ever produced! Atwater Kent was one of the finest radio manufacturers of its time. In 1925 AK was the largest radio manufacturer in the US with over 12,000 employees. The Great Depression and unions, along with the loss of sales, caused the company to close in 1936. This radio should be displayed in every serious radio collectors collection. The radio chassis was rebuilt by Blake Dietze, and all of the metal encased tar blocks of components were replaced and the metal containers house new modern components. The cabinet was stripped and re-lacquered by Gary Marvin. It has the correct grille cloth, and factory knobs. I will include a battery powered AM radio transmitter so the device can be programmed to play with a mobile phone or mp3 player without altering the chassis. 19"H x 15"W x 10"D. $949.00. (1830032)

 

Crosley 66TA (1946)

NEW!

Crosley 66TA (1946)

The Crosley 66TA is a two band, six tube, Bakelite radio. The Bakelite cabinet is very nice. I have replaced the dial glass with a new plastic reproduction. The chassis has been thoroughly gone through and all out of tolerance components have been replaced. The radio is aligned and plays well across both bands. The original back cover has a builtin antenna, which covers the AM band. SW requires an external antenna. An aux input has been added so you can connect a phone or MP3 player. Approximately 13"W x 9"H x 8"D. $249.00. (1830030)

 

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)

 

Emerson 336 (1941)

NEW!

Emerson 336 (1941)

This Emerson is a solid pre-war AA5 radio. The Bakelite case is pretty nice, and it retains its acorn knobs. I have recapped the radio, replaced any out of tolerance components and shined it up a bit. It tunes well across the dial. 11"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D. $69.00. (1830031)

Emerson K121 (1936)

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. Was $349.00, now $299.00. (1830026)

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.

Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

ON SALE
until
August 7

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. Was $389.00, now $349.00. (1830025)

until
August 7

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. Was $259.00, now $229.00. (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)
