DESCRIPTION: This modern looking Westinghouse has a working back light glowing clock face! It is one of the only ones I come across that actually still works. It glows with a faint blue-ish color. How cool is that? It is a very rare feature among clock radios of this era because they didn't have LED lighting back then. Normal filament bulbs were not viable as a clock back light because they would need to be replaced regularly from being on all the time. So if you need to see what time it is in the middle of the night, this is the clock radio for you! Even if you don't, it would be cool to see this clock back light just glow! Tabletop solid state AM radio alarm clock manufactured by Westinghouse in late 50s to early sixties in excellent working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial. Cabinet is in very good condition. The gold painted trim is wearing off in areas. There is a small stress fracture on top that does not continue all the way to the edge. White clock face and fantastic clear graphics. The clear front bezel is in good condition. Totally transparent no yellowing no cracks no hazing. Looks almost like glass plate. Awesome color scheme. All original factory molded colors. No cracks, chips, deep abrasions or missing material. Very cool and usable everyday. This radio is over 50 years old! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Mid-century looking but still looks contemporary and relevant like it was manufactured recently. The tuning dial works fine. Original power cable is securely attached no breaks, splits, or exposed wiring. 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. The push buttons work. The alarm works. The sleep function works. The clock set and alarm set work. 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 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.
