I've seen some pretty loose definitions of the word "restored", but this one takes the cake.

Very likely that guy never even typed in that description. He found a similar sold radio, clicked on "Have one to Sell - Sell Now", and posted his auction using 100% of the description from the sold listing. If someone is that lazy when posting a radio, you can almost bet their packing job will be just as half @$$ed!

Needs a real good cleaning. The 1st picture is so low res and blurry you can't tell if the cabinet iscracked. See some new yellow caps. Does not even say it is working

Restored to look like it just came out of a barn.
