Not for me, but I'm sure someone here would love to add this to their collection. :lol:

I asked my wife what she thought of it and she said not much! Tacky. I would love to get it and maybe strip and refinish it. It would be fun to play with . I wonder if the 45As are still there.

The flowers on the side are what really give it a quality sound.

That cabinet style reminds me of a Philco 118H..... but without the paint.

Well at least it's still a complete radio, and now it's too ugly to use for a Wine rack.

Paint doesn't bother me much, it's reversible, and more often than not it needed refinished anyway.

You make a very good point, Mr Glass-half-full.
