Crosley 54 "Buddy Boy" (1930)
(wood tube table radio)

Crosley 54 "Buddy Boy" (1930)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

In 1930 for the 1931 model year, Crosley came out with a unique TRF radio utilizing "repwood" on the outer finish. Repwood is basically sawdust and tar mixture put into a mold to make the radio look as if it had a "carved" wood front. They are hard to find and highly collectable. This one has a beautiful original, untouched finish. The radio plays well, and is unrestored. The only thing I can see that was done is somewhere in its lifetime, someone soldered some tube shields in. Other than that, I believe it is an original set. The radio displays well and works, picking up stations across the dial. The model 54 is a seven-tube, AM only radio. If you have been looking for one, this is an excellent example. The redwood is still crisp and there is no crazing. This very collectable radio is priced to sell. ready to sit in your collection. 16"W x 15-1/2"H x 9-1/2"D.
