I don't have any more room, but I do like the style and the price is pretty good.

Looks to be a 1953 model, probably has an interesting tube lineup.
Notice how sellers on that site fill their description with nonsense and mention no make or model of anything?

It has 12 tubes, and yes I find so many people don't put the model number on the ad.. They just don't know how to write an ad or sell anything.
When I put an ad on Kijiji I usually say [if the ad is still here, it is still for sale].
Then I get a reply like Is it still for sale. life is like that everywhere.

The graphics and font on the dial sure indicate to me that the chassis was made by RCA.

It is a Canadian Viking which was probably built by Electrohome.
Viking is a store brand, the store was Eaton's. Both long gone, but were doing well in the 1950's.

Buy the set, and move your bed out to the garage...Problem solved! :wink:

I don't think the average person -who is not into antique radio's- is normally aware that make and model can be important. Now if it were a cellphone they were selling, then it would be a necessity.
