DESCRIPTION: This is a FM only radio. Rare to find an FM only radio. Most were AM only or less commonly AM/FM. Tabletop Tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Arvin in late 50s early 60s timeframe in excellent+ working condition. Picks up FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. There were small chips on both front top corners that have been repaired and repainted. Pink back has no cracks, splits, repairs, or missing material whatsoever. This radio is over 50 years old! All original everything. The knobs are in excellent condition. Not sure if the knobs have yellowed with age or whether they were originally gold translucent. The metal dial face has no major scratches or rust or peeling. Please see the photo close-up. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The Arvin logo is a little worn off. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. 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. The non original power cord and plug are good 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
