Coronado 907 item #1752
I very seldom get Coronado radios to sell especially in wood cabinets. This is a Model 907. The cabinet is in decent condition but I think the lacquer finish may have been removed at some point. I would just use some Howards or Old English and I think that will make the cabinet look very presentable. I have had great success with wood cabjnets just like this one by using Watco Danish Oil, leaving it on for a few minutes, and then rubbing it off. Leaves a hand rubbed soft shine. There is also a crack that runs along the bottom solid wood base. You could fill the crack in with wood putty but since it is on the bottom piece I would just leave it alone. I have seen this occur many times with radios that have a separate solid wood base and it is just from aging. Finally a small hairline in the front by the speaker grill work but again part of the aging process and not worth any concern but I mention it for completeness. The transformer driven 7 tube chassis looks to be in original condition although I have not taken it apart (several of the tubes are marked Coronado). The good news is that the radio is working without hum. The original field coil speaker looks good too. Original knobs, pushbuttons, dial plastic, escutcheon and labels inside the cabinet. Unusual radio to come across in working condition.

Crosley 11-118U item #1748
Fresh out of an estate comes this 1951 Crosley Model 11-118U "Serenader" radio. It is in excellent condition throughout with just 3 small scratches on top that could be touched up (look at first picture closely and you can just make them out). The case does not have any cracks or chips. I powered the radio up and it plays fine. I was curious so I took out the chassis and it is clean and all original. Knobs, back, and label on bottom complete this beauty. Priced at 1/2 of other websites.

Philo 37-610 Big Bullet item #1747
This is one of my favorite art deco radios. It is a 1937 Philco Model 37-610 aka "Big Bullet". The wood cabinet is in good condition for being 80 years old, but there are a few repairs needed. There is a small missing piece of veneer on the front as seen in the first picture. The lacquer finish on top is worn and will need some refinishing. The veneer along the front top edge needs gluing down, and there is a small crack in the veneer just before it starts the rounded portion of the cabinet (it can also be glued down and when sanded smooth should not be a problem). As you can see in the first picture the grill cloth is torn and the original Philco field coil speaker had some tears in this area. I was able to use rubber cement from the inside of the speaker and make the repairs and it is now fine. On the bottom of the cabinet is a factory cut out so you can see the underneath of the chassis. I noticed one electrolytic was disconnected so I removed the chassis and found all 3 were disconnected. I decided to replace them and to my amazement the radio played fine and sounded great. If this was my radio I would still replace the rest of the old capacitors, but this takes the big gamble out of buying an old tube radio and not knowing if it works. While I had the chassis out I noticed the plastic dial had 2 cracks and I was able to epoxy them tight. I think it looks fine but if this bothers you repro dials for this radio are available. Finally, the original knobs and escutcheon are good. I had one of these radios in my collection and sold it for $350. I had wanted to get another but do not have the time for any more projects so instead I am offering it for sale for $100 (I recently looked on ebay and cabinets alone for this radio go for $100). Please expect Fedex shipping to be around $35 East and $45 West of the Mississippi as this is a large radio and needs a big box with lots of packing. I am betting this radio will go quickly.

Philco 42-PT94 item #1737
Philco Model 42-PT94 Transitone from 1942. Wood case is solid with no veneer problems but needs refinishing. Unfortunately the escutcheon, which is made of Tenite, has a notoriously bad reputation. This type of plastic shrinks and warps over time. In my opinion the one on this radio is still acceptable looking. Better news on the chassis - it was rebuilt and is playing just fine with very nice sound and plenty of sensitivity. Everything else looks original to the radio including the knobs, handle, back, and full labels on bottom. Restore the cabinet and you will have a very nice radio.
