Downsizing Collection

I am always open to offers on radios in my collection. If you see something you want, please enquire. If you are unsure of what the radio is worth or hesitant to make an offer, please ask for help in determining its value. Thanks.



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.

$45.00      condition: good


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. 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.

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. I also have the field coil speaker but it does have some tears, and the knobs. Price is for all.

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.

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.

$40.00      condition: fair


Unknown Wooden Radio item #1690
Not sure who made this one. The wood case is in very good condition but may have been stripped of the old lacquer finish. You can always reapply the finish, but still presentable as is. Radio itself is working well. I peeked inside and it is a transformer operated chassis. Dial is fine and says "Made in America" but no other hints as to maker. I can't vouch for originality of the knobs. Grille cloth is good. Back is intact. You can't go wrong for the price.

$35.00      condition: good


Hoffman A300 item #1689
This is a Hoffman Model A300. Blond wood case has some nice styling. Original finish mostly intact but some areas on case that have scratches and scuffs. Needs cleaning and polishing and should then look decent (most of the scratches and scuffs will be less noticeable or disappear entirely). Radio powered up and works fine. Transformer powered 6 tube chassis. Full readable schematic on bottom. Original Hoffman knobs. Glass dial had white lettering on top of glass and dark green lettering on underside. Interesting effect but some of the white lettering is worn off. The Hoffman Radio Corp was based in Los Angeles CA and I don't come across to many of their radios here on the East Coast.
