DESCRIPTION: Tabletop Tube AM radio manufactured by Motorola in 1962 excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition. Factory orginal molded color. There are no cracks, major chips, or major scratches. No repairs and repaints. None needed. What's more, the little plastic feet are intact, not broken or chipped! This radio is over 50 years old! The knobs are original black in good condition. The numbering is not faded. The silver paint on speaker and dial surround circles are faded. The little gold metal inserts at the center of the speaker grill and clock face are not missing which is incredible. These things usually pop off over the years. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. The on/off volume knob is in excellent condition and turns on with a definite click. Both knobs are 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 unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. Backing board is in good condition with crisp square corners. The power cord and plug has been repaired. 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!
