DESCRIPTION: Rare color rare model. This model has some bells and whistles not found in other Motorola clock radios of this era. It has the calendar function with day and date. It has the phono input which is uncommon among Motorolas. It is an extremely unusual color. The white plastic back is not yellowed like other 5C14 and 5C25 models. It has a dial light which is uncommon for these Motorola clock radios. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition with no splits, chips, or missing material. Score. Original factory molded color. Unbelievable color. No repaints. No repairs. None needed. I have never seen this bright turquoise, Petty Blue, before. It is a lot more vivid than the 'Vivid 57cc turquoise.' This radio is over 50 years old! No missing labels. The knobs are in fair to good condition. The gold metal inserts are tarnished and pitted. No missing clock knobs. Amazing. The clear dial face has no cracks. Please see the photo close-up. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The Motorola logo on the front grill is worn off. The metal fascia is dull and pitted. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. The tuning dial plastic is yellowed and pitted. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works and keep accurate time for a mechanical analog design. The clock is reasonably quiet. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. The calendar function works. There is a appliance timer function in back. 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. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. The cord is stiff from age but pliable. 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
