Condition: I am afraid that from time-to-time cosmetic blemishes may be experienced on the chassis or the case of your vintage tube radio or amplifier for which we cannot be responsible.

The “mechanical” Power Indicator is non-functional as the dial cord and pullies required for restoration were not available – this feature can be restored for an additional service fee and a small delay in shipment.

Please Note: This vintage radio is sold as a collector’s item and required full restoration and maintenance to function optimally. It’s a beautiful decor piece on its own, but its functionality may vary on location.
