(1) General Electric 125- nice in maroon and gold, only cracks are minor (Not all the way through plastic as far as I can tell) around screw holes on bottom of case.....Replaced electrolytic caps and tested tubes (perhaps original and good) already, removed archaic spider from dial window view, powers up and plays on variac, needs leaky coupling caps replaced and will probably be a good runner in service... $30

(2) 1956 Packard Bell 5R1- Fixed crack in bottom of case, slight split above volume knob, otherwise case good...Replaced several paper caps and all electrolytics, tubes checked good and replaced where necessary...Powered up, but did not get any reception, loop antenna has torn, though ant. wires twisted together for testing...Sold as/is for further repair- $35

(3) General Electric 505 Clock Radio- Received this poorly packed and damaged from the auction site, it was originally brown,
but after re-gluing broken pieces decided to paint it ivory, not that great but looks better than it did...
Untested in service, all seems to be there inside except power cord is cut, missing all 3 original clock knobs- $15

(4) Delco R-1229- see below for more info, $35

(5) 1953 Sylvania model 433- see below for more info, $30

(6) 1946 Crosley 56 TJO- Found this over Memorial day weekend at a antique mall in Sacto..At first looked so nice (refinished), thought it was a Chinese repro radio with ipod!...Marked "needs work" on tag and looks like a project someone almost finished, but never did...Wires from several replaced caps were disconnected from cold solder joints, I tried to connect to proper locations, but decided that a thorough re- tracing of the schematic to chassis was necessary to get it working...not sure if any internal parts are missing (resistors removed, etc)...Added a lamp socket, 47 bulb and shunt resistor (they were missing) and tested and replaced tubes where necessary...powered up on variac until "47"bulb lit (about 25 volts), then shut off as filaments weren't lighting on tubes except for rectifier. A new A.C. cord and white antenna wire were added by previous owner, pressboard back is missing.
A somewhat rare box radio for troubleshooting, sold as/is- $40

(7) 1946 RCA 56X5- Previous owner added phono/radio switch on rear with input jack, otherwise original...Have not cleaned inside or checked tubes, replaced filters yet though may do so if little interest at this price- $40

Payment via check, m.o. or paypal FOF, these will ship either UPS or fedex ground, whichever is less...
PM for shipping costs and please provide a ZIP code when inquiring...
