Yellow Country Cottage 1940 Motorola 55x15 Tube AM Radio Original Factory Quaint Design Sounds Great!
DESCRIPTION: If you remember sitting in Grandma's kitchen and hearing her radio in the background, this is that radio. The flowers on this wood cabinet antique radio are not painted on they are original Motorola factory decals! Not added on by some previous owner. This was made in the 1940s not the 1840s! Vintage wood tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Motorola in 1940 in very good physical and excellent working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Wood cabinet is in very good structural condition. The wood strip between the speaker grill and the tuning window is de-layer-ing. Original factory yellow paint is in excellent condition with just couple dings and fleabites. Normally, this model suffers from much worse paint loss on top due to heat, moisture, and age. Not this one. No repaint, no over spray, no touch up needed. This model also came in green and white. The cloth grill is replaced no rips, holes, or funny smells. Some discoloration. Motorola label on front tuning glass is in excellent condition with no flaking or rub off. The knobs are in excellent condition securely attached. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on tuning dial lettering. The clear tuning glass is securely attached no cracks or scratches. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping no sticky spots. Tuning dial light works and lights brightly! All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. Backing board is in excellent condition with crisp square corners and clear print. The replacement power cord and safety polarized plug is brand new with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. No missing factory labels. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment.
