Copy/paste from ad:
"Completely restored 650 1936 Philco radio that is now working. This thing is in emasculate shape and looks great!"
Proof that reality is better than fiction!

The radio is emasculated somewhat by mounting the escutcheon upside down. You can't see the shadow meter!

Shame about that radio being emasculated.

Also on sale on FB is is this 1967 Ford Mustang. While it is indeed a Ford, it most certainly isn't a Mustang. It even says GALAXIE 500 in big letters on the side.
