Zenith Trans-Oceanic L600 item #1596
Zenith Trans Oceanic Model L600 Chassis 6L40 [black] - Zenith Radio Corp.; Chicago. Case is solid but there is a hole in the back that was patched up. I think the repair can be made much better and hardly noticeable by getting some original fabric off a junker radio and patching in a small piece. Other then that everything on the radio appears in decent original shape. I extended the antenna and it is fine. The power cord extends and then retracts automatically as it should. I powered up the radio and got some stations but they are garbled due to the loud hum from the leaky electrolytics which need to be replaced (1L6 tube apparently is ok). Also the dial cord is off the pulleys but it appears to be sitting there ready to be restrung. The log and charts on the top are intact and in good shape. The knobs, switches and pushbuttons are functional. The front plastic escutcheon and plastic dial cover are fine. Top handle is fine. I even found a surprise in the back - the original Zenith 1.5 volt dry cell battery. It will be included if you want. Here is the deal - buy it as is described for $50, or I will restring and replace the bad electrolytic for another $25. These are heavy radios so expect FedEx shipping to be about $25-35 but I will give you exact shipping to your zip if you request a shipping quote.

Westinghouse H204 item #1595
Westighouse Model H204. Factory painted cream bakelite case is dirty and needs cleaning. With some touch ups I think it will be very presentable. No cracks or chips. The radio is AM/FM and the plug is missing but I jumped it into my variac and at 70 volts I got a low level hum so capacitor replacement may be all that is necessary to get this working. Everything on the radio looks original. The large plastic escutcheon over the speaker grill cloth is not broken and gives the radio a deco or perhaps oriental look. Dial and cover in good shape just needs cleaning. Label with tube layout still intact on bottom. One very interesting and clever feature of this radio (and I wish other radios were similar) is that the back is secured by one screw on the right and then opens with a hinge on the left. I could not resist opening it and the chassis looks clean. I think this radio restored will be a nice addition to your collection.

Books - A Collectors Guide to Antique Radios Vol 6 item #1592
I have a limited number of brand new copies of A Collectors Guide to Antique Radios Vol 6 edited by John Slusher of Radio Daze. If you have the earlier volumes you know what a fantastic reference guide this is to radio values and to identifying your old radios. Worth it alone for the pictures. These can be sent media mail to US only addresses. Original price was $24.95. I also have earlier volumes that are long out of print so please ask about pricing (conditions vary from very good to excellent). Special pricing on complete sets volumes 1-6 (2nd picture shows the original Bunis Volume 1 that started it all back in 1991).

Bendix 0636C item #1591
Very nice Bendix Model 0636C radio. Wooden case in very good condition with original finish with some age related wear marks (Old English or Howards will easily cover them up). 6 tube chassis was electronically restored and is playing fine. Beautiful basket weave front grill over speaker. Knobs are original and perfect. Full back and label on bottom. This was part of my collection but thinning out so here is an opportunity to get one of those seldom seen radios in great shape.

RCA 95T5 item #1588
RCA Model 95T5 radio. Wood case in decent condition but some cracking of the veneer as it rounds the corner of the cabinet (common on sets with tightly curved veneer). Original finish intact but needs some cleaning. Transformer operated chassis with 5 tubes (6A8, 6Q7, 6K7, 6K6, 5Y3) in working condition but could probably use some cleaning of the pots as they are noisy. Original knobs, pushbuttons, grille cloth and full label on bottom in nice shape. Good restoration project. Please note I have two of this exact model for sale - see item # 1575.

Chassis - Emerson 301 item #1587
Chassis from an Emerson Model 301. Powered up but only got a hum so needs recapping (line cord missing plug). Worth it for tubes and original field coil speaker in decent shape.

Chassis - Blaupunkt Ballett TYP 20003 item #1586
Chassis out of a Blaupunkt Ballett Type 20003. The case was badly cracked so I removed it and the speaker. The chassis looks good and I was able to power it up but only got garbled sound from a few stations on the broadcast band. I am sure the original electrolytics and various other caps need updating. These German sets are extremely well engineered and sound great once working. The knobs and pushbuttons are original and the dial looks very nice. The speaker is in good condition as well. Price is for the chassis + speaker but if you want the cabinet I will include it (just have to pay for the additional shipping).

Cabinet - Philco 40-140 item #1585
Cabinet from a Philco Model 40-140. Original finish intact just needs some cleaning. Small sliver of veneer missing from bottom side in back. Loop antenna intact on inside top. Original plastic dial cover has a small crack but still useable. Escutcheon also has a tiny crack on the right side but hard to notice. Original grill cloth looks great. Bargain at $20 or let me know if you want anything off the cabinet.

Songbird 4002 item #1583
This is an AirKing sold under the name Songbird. Not sure about exact model but close to a 4002. Wood case has the original finish but there are some areas where it has worn thin. Howards Restor A Finish or Old English will revitalize the finish and make it look more presentable. Chassis uses 6 tubes and although the power cord is starting to crumble I plugged it in and as I brought it up on my variac I got that familiar hum from the leaky electrolytics so a recapping is in order. Should then work fine. Chassis has a phono input on the rear easily converted to a IPOD jack. Original wood knobs, brass escutcheon, plastic dial cover, dial, and grill cloth all in very nice shape. This is not a common radio and will be a nice addition to your collection.

Chassis - Delco R1125 item #1582
This is an older Delco Model R1125 transformer operated chassis out of a small wooden radio case. It uses the older tubes (80, 6A7, 75,78,41) so I would date it from the late 1930's (I was surprised to see a GT style 80 rectifier). The good news is that the radio is working but I would still recap. It has the original wood knobs correct for the set. The field coil speaker is in amazing shape and it has the mounted output transformer. Because of the scarcity of these small 5" field coil speakers in this condition I am offering it for sale by itself for $25 or included with the chassis for $40. Also I have the original wood case but it is in rough condition as something spilled on the top causing the veneer to crack and pull away from the top. However it is still fully restorable and I will include it along with the grille cloth if you want it and are willing to pay the additional shipping.
