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.



1920's Temple Radio Speaker item #1631
Early 1920's Temple radio speaker. Has nice wooden base. Rest of speaker is metal. Condition of front grille is excellent. Some scratches on back. Has continuity on a voltohm meter and gets sound when a 1.5 volt battery placed across cloth lead terminals. Heavy piece but will be packed securely. See similar speaker priced at $135 in worse condition at http://antiquetuberadio.com/Speaker/speakerpage2.html.

$90.00      condition: good


Sonora RDQ-222 item #1619
Very sharp art deco Sonora Model RDQ-222 radio. Just a few small chips in the factory painted cabinet but otherwise undamaged. I checked the 6 tube chassis and aside from a replacement electrolytic everything looks original. It works perfectly. Original knobs and back. Dial is especially nice. ON HOLD FOR CUSTOMER

$65.00      condition: good


Philco 11" Field Coil Speaker item #1616
Speaker from a Model 38-7 console radio. In very good condition and complete with output transformer (field coil and transformer both have continuity).

$25.00      condition: good


Chassis - Philco 38-7 item #1615
Chassis from a Philco Model 38-7 console radio (this chassis also fits the chairside model). Looks original and unrestored (and untested). Some light rust on power transformer and on top of tuning dial but will wipe off, rest of chassis decent. All switches work and the dial turns freely. Some of the station markings have faded on the outside of the plastic dial but the bands and their respective frequencies are intact. I also have the original speaker for sale separately. Will sell parts off chassis if wanted.

$25.00      condition: fair


Sonora RDAU-209 item #1613
Sharp looking Sonora Model RDAU 209. The wood cabinet is solid with a very tiny piece of missing veneer on the bottom side (you probably would miss it if I did not point it out). The original finish is intact and in very good condition. There are a few tiny paint spots on the front but again not a big deal. The 6 tube chassis was serviced and the electrolytics and one other cap replaced. The radio plays just fine and that extra tube stage brings in a lot of stations. Original knobs, glass dial, full back and label on bottom in great shape. I think the design of this case with the curves and inlay equals or surpasses those expensive Ingraham cases found on the old Emerson radios.

$85.00      condition: good


RCA 15X item #1609
RCA Model 15X radio. Bakelite case shines and does not have any flaws. Chassis was serviced and radio plays fine. This set uses 6 tubes and the extra stage really improves reception. Original knobs, dial, back and label on bottom all in great shape. One extra feature for you music lovers is that this radio comes with an RCA phono jack to hook up a record player or better yet, an IPOD or MP3 player. I sell a special cable with a 3.5 mm stereo plug that safely converts stereo to mono and allows you to connect your external devise to a RCA mono input. If you really want to go the extra step I also sell a Bluetooth receiver so you can go completely wireless from this radio to any external device with Bluetooth capability (IPHONE, IPAD, etc.). Buy the complete package for $100 (radio, custom cable, Bluetooth receiver kit)

$75.00      condition: excellent


EICO HFT-90 item #1606
This is an EICO Model HFT-90 FM mono tuner. It appears to be in very good condition and the brass front is very nice. I examined the chassis and it has all but one original EICO tubes. I powered it up and the blue exclamation point tuning tube lights up just fine (great retro look). I did not try to hook it up to an amp. The only issue I could see was the pot metal band on the counterweight of the tuning mechanism has some cracks in it (like almost all old pot metal). This does not effect the performance of the tuning mechanism (that works fine). If this was my set I would use a small brush and spread a thin band of epoxy over the top of the pot metal and that will stabilize the cracking. Has complete set of labels on bottom with tube compliment and input output locations.

$50.00      condition: good


Zenith 6G501M item #1605
Zenith Model 6G501M Universal Portable (AC or battery) radio from 1941. This radio is historically significant as the forerunner of the Transoceanic series. It is a broadcast only receiver. The airplane cloth exterior which is often found in ripped or rough condition is really in nice shape. Everything looks original (except for the leather handle which was replaced) and in excellent condition including the removable Wavemagnet antenna. I tried to power it up but only got a hum so you know what that means (replace electrolytics of course). The insides are remarkably clean as pictured. If you collect historically important radios or just want an excellent example of this popular Zenith portable consider this one for sure. Included is the original installation and operating instructions that came with the radio when it was bought new (not pictured).

$85.00      condition: good


Telechron 8H59 item #1604
Very nicely styled Telechron Model 8H59 clock radio. Factory painted bakelite case in excellent condition with just a very few marks where the paint has worn through. Its tough to find these in better cosmetic condition then this one. Everything seems to be working fine including the clock and radio. I have not taken it apart but you can see into the back and there are replacement electrolytics visible (and what appears to be a very shinny copper chassis). Original radio and clock knobs, back and full label on bottom all in great shape. I may keep this so buy it before I change my mind.

$65.00      condition: excellent


Stromberg Carlson 1500H item #1603
Very deco looking Stromberg Carlson Model 1500H. Bakelite cabinet nice and shiny but has one hairline over the dial on the top but it has been epoxied from the inside so not a problem. Does not detract from the radio. Tag on radio said chassis was restored and the radio is playing really well. Original dial plastic in excellent condition (not easy to find this way). Nice bullet knobs, full back and label. Normally I would sell this for much more then $60 due to the small crack. I also have a Stromberg Carlson Model 1400H cabinet for sale for $25 (see item #1321). It will fit this model so if your concerned over the hairline crack then perhaps this extra cabinet may work for you too.

$65.00      condition: good
