Downsizing Collection

After many years of collecting radios I have finally run out of room, and that dreaded word "downsizing" has reared its ugly head. This first round is limited to radios that I can live without, so please do not be offended if I tell you it's not for sale (all that means is it's not for sale at the present time). So if you see something you like please let me know. I will tell you if I will consider selling it and then you can decide what you want to pay for it. I will accept offers only. Please do not ask me what I want for it, it is up to you to make an offer. Of course I will send you a complete description with pictures so you know what you are buying. Shipping will be added to the total unless your offer is to good to be true, and in that case shipping is negotiable. Just click on the rectangular button called Collection and make up your wish list. Please remember that my usual For Sale list with descriptions, pictures, and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

Motorola 59X11 item #1804
Sharp looking Motorola Model 59X11. I especially like the dashboard radio look and I already have this one in white. The cabinet is in excellent shape with a nice shine and the chassis was rebuilt and the radio plays fine. A pilot lamp illuminates the entire lucite dial and is striking in a dimly lit area. Original knobs and back. Metal escutcheon and dial pointer add to the retro dashboard look.

$75.00      condition: excellent

Hallicrafters S40A item #1801
For your viewing pleasure, a Hallicrafters S40A communications receiver. This is one of the earlier models from 1947 and is in really nice clean shape (I did not even wipe down the cabinet but if you do it will look even better). I took it apart and replaced 4 electrolytics and one paper capacitor and it is playing perfectly on all bands. Unbelievable sensitivity and selectivity especially with the bandspread dial. You should hear this at night when the short wave and amateur radio bands really come to life. Top lefts up to replace tubes. Chassis is clean. Someone added a wire out the back which I first thought was for an external speaker until looking at it closely and then realized it provides an external input. So I added an RCA phono jack and now you have a way to hook up your IPOD, MP3 player, turntable etc. Just leave off the antenna connection or detune the radio to where there is no station and you can hear your device play great music. Better yet, add a Bluetooth receiver to this jack and go wireless and stream music from your Smartphone, IPAD, Tablet etc. I sell these separately but they are currently out of stock. This is a great deal for this quality of a communications receiver in this condition. It also comes with the original installation and operating instructions. If you want additional information on the band coverage and the functions of the various controls, please ask or you can simply look up on the internet as there is plenty of information available on this gem. Please expect shipping to be in the $30-40 range.

Bendix 687A Suitcase Radio item #1797
Interesting Bendix Aviation Corp Model 687A suitcase radio. This is a battery or AC operated radio. The front folds down to reveal the controls. The back folds down to reveal the chassis and tubes. The case needs some cleaning but otherwise presentable. The chassis is clean. I powered it up and just got a loud hum because the electrolytics need replacing. I'll bet it will then work just fine. Everything looks original right down to those great 4 Bendix knobs which are hard to find. I am offering this radio at $45 or for another $25 I will get it working for you. Complete with 4 page SAMS schematic, parts list etc.

Motorola 40P Car Radio item #1796
Great find at auction. This is a Motorola Model 40P tube car radio. It was designed to install in a 1941 Pontiac but will fit other cars as well. It is in decent original condition complete with pushbuttons and knobs. The only issue is the plastic dial has shrunk and will need replacing. This car radio has a built in speaker making these favorites to install in older cars as well as using it in your home. Car radios have special circuitry to tune in stations and once this is repaired it will be a great radio. I took off the back to take a pictures so you can see how well preserved it is.

Cabinet and Plinth for a Garrard 301 Transcription Turntable item #1794
Nice solid walnut cabinet and plinth for a Garrard 301 transcription turntable. Plenty of room for a transcription length 16' tone arm as well. Looks to be professionally built with a fully sprung suspension. Wood needs cleaning and polishing. Dimensions 24.5" x 19.5" x 10". Brass piano hinge along back. Plinth sold separately for $50.

Crosley 5M3 Fiver Junior item #1793
Crosley Model 5M3 Fiver Junior tombstone. Nice art deco look to it from the front. Cabinet in decent shape with original finish. Wood grill intact but small tear in grill cloth upper left hand side. Tried to power it up but did not get anything. I noticed an old 280 globe rectifier tube and it was borderline weak when tested. I put in a good 80 and was able to power it up and get some background noise out of the speaker. That's a good sign and I bet new electrolytics will get it up and running probably even with the 280 globe tube. Everything looks original to the radio although I did not take it apart. My favorite of the Crosley line as it has the green dial which looks great when back lit.

IPOD Cable for Tube Radios with Phono Input item #1790
This is an adapter cable for radios with an RCA phono input that can be used with an IPOD, MP3, IPAD, Smartphone device so you can hear music on your AM radio. The cable is custom made with an RCA phono jack on one end and a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) stereo jack on the other end. Inside the RCA plug are two resistors to provide a stereo to mono conversion with the appropriate load on your device. You cannot simply use a Y adapter because it will directly short the left and right stereo channels which will blow the output stage on your device. Price is for one cable. Please add $3.50 for first class postage. Also available is a Bluetooth receiver that will accept this cable and then you can have a wireless connection between your IPAD, Smartphone etc and your tube radio. The receiver is $15 additional and comes with a USB charging cable for the internal battery which provides many hours of listening on one charge. First class postage still $3.50 for both.
