Downsizing Collection

After years and 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. There are not going to be any lists, and nothing will be priced ahead of time. Shipping will be added to the selling price. 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.



Leader Low Distortion Audio Generator item #1708
Leader Model LAG-126/126S low distortion audio generator. A must for the HIFI specialist. Specs and operators manual available on line (free download) at http://www.leaderamerica.com/marketing/manual/LAG126-126S-Instruction_Manual.pdf. Very good condition. MSRP $595, one like it sold on eBay in 2015 for $265. Radiotiques price $75

$75.00      condition: good


Magnavox FM017 item #1705
Magnavox Model FM017 7 tube AM/FM radio. Blond wood case has some scratches/scrapes and needs some touch ups. I turned it on and it worked great for a few minutes with a nice sound and then all of a sudden volume decreased to near nothing. Not sure what the problem is (tube? cap? resistor?). Original knobs, back, label on bottom. Brass face plate has some discoloration throughout but may polish out. Solid radio for the price.

$20.00      condition: fair


Westinghouse 503 item #1704
Westinghouse Model 503 radio. Wood case needs some touch up/refinishing on top, rest of case looks decent. Tried to power it up but just got a low level hum so needs some repair work. Original knobs, dial, back, grille cloth in good shape. Has a phono input so would make a nice tube amplifier for your IPOD, MP3 etc.

$20.00      condition: fair


Hallicrafters 5R40 item #1702
This is a little different. It is a Hallicrafters Model 5R40 (Continental). It is AC or battery operated. The leatherette case is pretty nice with just a few marks that can be touched up with brown shoe polish if you prefer (they do this all the time on eBay). The brass escutcheon on the bottom has some tarnish on it but it is fairly even across the radio so I would leave it as found. The chassis is clean. The radio works but I am sure it will work even better when serviced. It is both broadcast and short wave. Looks complete with all original parts and handle on top (2 brass handle holders also somewhat tarnished but I would leave alone). The knobs on the front have a little whitish residue which comes off easily. The fabric clasp which helps to secure the back is still there which is a small miracle (actually the back stays closed anyway). Very nice radio to add to your collection.

Zenith R600 Transoceanic item #1700
Zenith Model R600 Transoceanic, chassis # 6R40. Cabinet in condition as shown. No major rips, tears or missing pieces. Needs the usual cleaning and polishing. Chassis looks original and in good condition but dial string is off the pulleys. Powered it up and got hum so those electrolytics need replacing. Good 50A1, 1L6 tubes. Front plastic escutcheon has a few melt marks on top left (can be seen in 1st picture). Dial, knobs, pushbuttons, log scale, wave magnet, telescoping antenna all intact and look ok. Need parts - let me know what you want (chassis, wavemagnet, antenna, etc) . These are heavy well built radios so expect shipping to be $25-30.

$50.00      condition: fair


Chassis - Zenith G844 item #1699
This is a Zenith radio I have not seen before. I thought it was the conventional AM/FM radio from the early 50's but this one is different. When I disassembled the console and took out the radio I was pleasantly surprised to find a transformer operated chassis (no selenium rectifier like all the others) with 8 tubes. The brass escutcheon has the FM band on it and the back dial has the AM band. I wanted to see how it would look lit up so I powered up the radio and the dial is really neat. The radio also played but with distortion and hum so those old electrolytics should be changed. I noticed a few other repairs (cap, resistor) but most of the original parts are intact. The second picture shows the original Zenith PM speaker in perfect condition, and the escutcheon. If you want it all (knobs and original back included) the price is $45. Otherwise tell me what you want and I will price it accordingly.

Chassis - Silvertone 7048 item #1695
Chassis out of a Silvertone Model 7048 console radio. The cord is cut so untested but appears complete and original. The cabinet that this radio came in was immaculate and apparently stored properly so I think that is relected in the chassis condition. I also have the following from the cabinet: the wooden antenna, the speaker backboard - grille cloth is perfect, the field coil speaker also in perfect condition, and the knobs. Please see item # for pictures and pricing. Chassis is $35 with speaker $50.

$35.00      condition: fair


Chassis - Zenith 6G501M item #1693
Original chassis from a Zenith 6G501M Universal 3 way portable. Cord cut so untested but looks complete and unmolested. I also have the original speaker in good condition. Price is for chassis + speaker. Z knobs (2 for $5) and removable wavemagnet antenna ($10) available separately or buy everything for $35.

$25.00      condition: fair


Philco 48-641 item #1691
Philco Model 48-641 from 1948. Wood case solid but loosing the finish in places (mostly on top). Good candidate for restoration (I would sand down and reapply a brown lacquer). Radio powered up and is working fine. Original knobs, grille cloth and back all in nice condition. Two tone printed glass dial one of the best I have seen (no flaking). Popular Philco model.
