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. Not all my hundreds of prized possessions are for sale, but if you see something you must have please email for a complete description. 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. 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 and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

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.

GE 107 item #1740
General Electric Model 107 in a classic machine age bakelite cabinet. No cracks or chips and has a nice shine. Looked at the chassis and aside from some dust looks complete with all its original parts. Powered up and works fine. Knobs, back, and label on bottom all original and in good shape. If you want recapping available on this radio for an extra $25.

$50.00      condition: excellent


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.

$40.00      condition: fair


Emerson FP421 item #1736
Nicely styled machine age Emerson Model FP421 from about 1941. Bakelite case is free of damage and has a nice soft shine. Chassis was recapped and realigned and is playing fine. Original Emerson knobs (left to right bass treble tone control, volume, on/off, tuning). Plastic dial face a little yellowed but acceptable (replacements readily available but I Iike to keep parts original if possible). Dial is clean.

$75.00      condition: excellent


Philco 40-502 Radio/78 RPM Record Player item #1733
Philco Model 40-502 radio record player. Cabinet is in excellent condition and has its original finish with just two small pieces of veneer missing but touched-up so hardly noticeable. Radio chassis was rebuilt and works fine. Record player was also completely rebuilt with a replacement motor, tone arm, and cartridge. Plays those 78 records perfectly, and the permanent needle and the lighter metal tone arm won't hurt those records like the replaceable steel needles. Multi position switch on top of the record player is to select radio, phono, and bass, and toggle switch turns turntable on. I don't think you will find this model in better condition especially at this price. ON HOLD

$75.00      condition: excellent
