Bonneville Pink 1958 Silvertone Model 9029 AM Clock Radio Dual Speaker Rare Excellent Condition Bells and Whistles!
DESCRIPTION: This clock radio is another swan song from the illustrious and near defunct Sears Roebuck and Company under the Silvertone brand. Back in the day, Sears was like Amazon today with deep pockets and an itch to be all things to the consumer; money no object. So this clock radio has everything the engineers could dream up and accountants with blank checks! It is low and sleek like the Pontiac Wide Track designs of 1959. The molded back design features a front ventilated slotted grill for heat escape! How wonderful! Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Sears Silvertone in the late 50's. Cabinet is an original molded pink plastic. Not repainted no over spray or touch ups. None needed. No cracks or chips or major scratches. Very mid-century looking and very rare! Dual speakers. This radio is over 50 years old! The bottom gold foil logo started to peel but has now been re-glued. The tuning dial works fine no slipping. The dial light lights up brightly! The power cable is securely attached. The original cord was stronger and better quality than most. The power cord is in excellent working condition. 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. The clock works and keeps accurate time. The clock motor is quiet no buzzing, cranking, or grinding noises. The clock set knob in back works. The clock face has a hairline crack. The clear clock cover is securely attached with not broken attach tabs. The alarm set knob works. The sleep function works. 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. 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.
