DESCRIPTION: Lovely little number in factory molded April spring green. Love this color above all other GE colors in this model series. No cracks, chips, or major scratches. No discoloration. Original factory molded colors. No repaint. No over spray. No touch up. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by General Electric in the late fifties in excellent working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cool! Cabinet is original spring green plastic. Plastic case is crack free and in mint condition. A true find. There's a funny melt spot on the right side like it was pushed up against a toaster. Also some jerky carved letters and numbers into the front of the radio by the dial knobs. Look at the bottom front shot of the radio. Very cool and rare color combination. This radio is over 50 years old! The "ON", "OFF", "RADIO" lettering is even not worn off! The clock face is pristine! One light scratch on the clear plastic clock face cover approx 8 o'clock. The tuning dial works fine. No rub off numbers. Clock works and keeps accurate time. Alarm works. Buzzer is loud. Sleep timer works. Clock time and alarm set time work. All knobs are original and securely attached. The gold metal caps in the knobs are original and not tarnished. The power cable is securely attached. 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. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. 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 no pets.
