National SW-54 Receiver (1955)

National SW-54 Receiver (1955)

This is a National AM/Shortwave five-tube receiver. A great playing radio. It was the entry level receiver for the beginning Ham radio operator in the 50's. Similar to the Hallicrafters S-38 series. The case is in great condition. As you can see from the last picture, I replace all the electrolytic and wax caps so that it will last another 40 years. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days Read some of my feedback on restoration on eBay under Hammer39. $175.00. (0040389)

 

Lafayette HA-600A Shortwave Receiver (1975)

Lafayette HA-600A Shortwave Receiver (1975)

This is an Amateur and Shortwave receiver with six bands and fine tuning for Ham radio operators. The front and case are in pristine condition. I rebuilt the power supply and it should last another 40 more years. I also tuned it for peak performance. It plays great on all bands with a 15 -ft antenna. I would put at least a 25-ft wire antenna on it. Most of these were bought without the original speaker. So someone added a speaker inside the back. It can be taken out for the purist. It comes with an operating manual. Supposedly a rare radio. Guaranteed for 1 year. $345.00. (0040388)

 

Yaesu FRG-7 Shortwave Receiver (1977)

Yaesu FRG-7 Shortwave Receiver (1977)

I am not a Ham radio operator, but I put a long antenna on it and it did pick up quite a few Shortwave stations. The lights work and it has a battery pack in it for battery operation. It has all it parts and is a clean radio. It comes with the instruction manual. I only clean/lubed the pots and gears but did not restore it. So I can only guarantee it will turn on (lights include) and pick up shortwave stations when it arrives. You can only return it if the above does not happen. These run close to $1000 in Japan. You see them untested for $325 to $500 and tested above $500. So my price is a bargain for one that works. $345.00. (0040387)

 

Sony ICF-6500W

Sony ICF-6500W

This is a Sony ICF-6500W receiver which is in excellent condition. I have tested the radio with six "C" batteries and and the original 9V power supply is included. I left the batteries in the radio since they were new. I was able to tune in to FM, AM and Shortwave with no issues. Audio quality from the built-in speaker is excellent for a radio of this vintage. The antenna is completely straight and shiny. The battery compartment looks like new. A nice Sony receiver for a great price $175.00. (0040385)

 

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1972)

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1972)

This radio plays FM only. Actually superb FM. Great radio for the garage. $145.00. (0040378)

 

Zenith 5F-233 AM/SW (1938)

Zenith 5F-233 AM/SW (1938)

This is a rare Zenith 5F-233 battery radio that looks like a 5S-218 cube. I have only seen two of them and I collected Zenith radios for 22 years. The case, knobs and speaker are the same as the AC playing 5S-218 and are in excellent condition. I don't work on battery radios and therefore this has not been restored. So I am selling it for a good price especially for a Zenith Collector. $295.00. (0040367)

 

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

This is just a beautiful looking cathedral radio made by Stewart-Warner in 1932. It was purchased in Wilmington, North Carolina some 15 years ago. Been with me ever since. The ornate cabinet is in superb original condition. It is a large six-tube cathedral with an 8-inch speaker that looks like new (see pic). The chassis is as clean as you get with an 80 year old radio and all six tubes were good. I replaced all the electrolytic and wax capacitors, as well as most of the resistors which were out of tolerance. It plays loud and clear. The power cord, antenna wire and ground wire are all new. It was cleaned, oiled and aligned for peak performance. The speaker grille cloth and knobs are original and in excellent condition. Six month warranty. 19"H x 14"W x 12"D. $495.00. (0040354)

 

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

This is a Music Box AM radio by Electrohome, made in Canada in 1946. It is a five-tube All American miniature tube radio that is a great AM player with a 10 ft cord. I restored it with all new electrolyte and wax cap replacements and good tubes. It also has a new power cord. To turn it on, you just open the box lid. The wooden box is in great condition. The chassis and speaker look like new. The dial plastic has been repaired but can be seen easily in that little dial window. $275.00. (0040345)

 

Arvin 732 (1941)

Arvin 732 (1941)

Nice decorative six-tube Arvin and plays like a six-tube radio should. Cabinet is in excellent shape. It has a 1/4 wood back and the chassis is clean. It has been restored with all new electrolytic capacitors and all the wax capacitors have been replaced as well. $155.00. (0040320)
Back to Top
My goal is to give you a great radio that you can play for years to come.  If the radio has any flaws or parts that are not original, you will know it before the purchase.  All the radios I sell have been electronically restored which means the following:

1) All tubes/transistors are checked and replaced when necessary.
2) All electrolytic and wax capacitors are replaced.
3) Resistors are checked and replaced if they are out of tolerance.
4) If the speaker cone is torn beyond a simple fix, it is sent out and replaced completely.
5) The tuning capacitor, volum , bass/treble controls are cleaned and lubricated.
6) The radio is aligned and tuned to play at peak performance.
7) Once the radio is restored, it is tested for three hours.
8) Before it is shipped, it is re-checked and tested, and will be played and listened to for three more hours.
9) The radio is professionally packed and shipped by USPS Priority 2 to 3 day service. It will be insured for sale value.

If the radio does not play when it arrives, return it for a full refund.  If you are not satisfied with the radio when it arrives send it back for a refund less shipping costs.  The radio is also guaranteed for six months assuming it is treated well.
