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. This first round is limited to radios that I can live without, so please do not be offended if I tell you it's not for sale (all that means is it's not for sale at the present time). So if you see something you like please let me know. I will tell you if I will consider selling it and 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. Of course I will send you a complete description with pictures so you know what you are buying. 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, pictures, and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.



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.

$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.

Atwater Kent 145 Tombstone item #1684
Please read the description carefully as this is a very collectible radio but it does have some issues. This is an early Atwater Kent Model 145 tombstone from 1934. The wood case looks to be all original and mostly intact. However there are some veneer issues. On one side there appears to be a split that needs gluing. On the top the veneer needs gluing down and there are several areas with small cracking and one small piece missing. Also some nut painted without protecting the radio and the top has a couple of white paint drops. On the rest of the cabinet there are a few tiny pieces of veneer missing. The better news is that all the wood fluting is nice and the original finish is mostly intact. On the front there is a channel where there is a slim piece of decorative wood on either side and on the right bottom a small piece is missing. The chassis looks intact and I plugged it in. I brought it up on my variac and there was a background hum (needs electrolytics of course) but I was able to get static at full volume but no stations. The antenna wire out the back is frayed so perhaps that is one of the reception problems. Also I have not pulled any tubes and they need to be checked. The good news is that it is drawing less than 1 amp at full voltage so no major shorts. I was able to change bands using the knob on the front and it is neat because there are 3 separate pilot lamps that light the dial depending on what band you select. The volume control works and the tone control works. The dial itself looks ok but the glass dial cover is missing. The original AK knobs are all there. The speaker grille cloth is not torn and in very acceptable condition. The speaker itself looks good. The brass tube shields are in place. ON HOLD.

Books - Philco Radio by Ron Ramirez item #1681
Published 23 years ago at $29.95 and now hard to find at double the price. This collection of Philco radios spans 1928-1942 and is a great reference guide. I have two copies and both are in excellent condition. Price includes shipping by USPS Media Mail to lower US 48 only.

$25.00      condition: excellent


Pair of Westinghouse AC/Battery Radios item #1675
For parts or repair. Condition as pictured (white one has a crack down the back). Both powered up and made noise or got a station. Both look to be in original condition. Price is for both.

$20.00      condition: fair


TraVler 55C44 Clock Radio item #1673
Here is a nice looking TraVler Model 55C44 clock radio in a blond wood cabinet. There is some slight edge wear on the cabinet but easily touched up. Radio and clock are both working fine. Looks to be all original including radio and clock knobs and a full undamaged back. You don't see many clock radios in wooden cabinets as nice as this one.

$45.00      condition: good


Zenith G503 "Universal" (1950) item #1663
One of the early Zenith radios that preceeded the Transoceanics. The case needs cleaning and polishing (any scuff marks will disappear with black shoe polish). The radio powered up with a loud hum but I was able to tune in a station so change those electrolytics and you will be back in business. When you open the front the tuning dial pops up and that turns the radio on, and off when you lower the tuning dial (radio shown in raised "on" position). The plastic dial cover has some small stress marks where it contacts the knobs when it is closed. That was a design flaw in these radios so be careful when you close the tuning dial cover. Everything looks original and intact. Very collectible radio.

$50.00      condition: fair


Collectible Radio Book Collection item #1662
Here is a rare opportunity to get 5 of the most sought after and long out of print radio books at one incredible price. Look these up on Amazon and you will see they sell together for $300+ and probably not even in this condition. The 5 hard copy books are in excellent condition with their dust jackets. The incredibly stunning photography will blow you away and wait until you see the radios. Sold as a collection only. Shipping by USPS Media Mail included in price (sorry lower US 48 only)

$100.00      condition: excellent
