DESCRIPTION: This is an AM/FM radio from mid-fifties timeframe. Rare to find an early AM/FM only radio in such a nice color combo but also good enough as a daily listener. Manufactured by little known and impossible to find AMC, "Aimcee Wholesale Corp, N.Y.C., " in excellent+ working and physical condition. This is probably the only one left in existence from AMC in this color combo with AM and FM in this condition. All original factory molded turquoise and white bakelite. Most AM FM radios are from sixties with plastic woodgrain and brushed aluminum. Granco is probably the original manufacturer (OEM). Picks up AM and FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial. Sounds clear and loud across the dial with FM antenna attached. It kinda blasts! Cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, splits, or missing bakelite. This radio is over 60 years old! The replacement knobs are in excellent condition and securely attached. The dial face is in excellent condition with a no ruboff and fading color on dial numbering. Please see the photo close-up. The tuning dial indicator usually goes missing on this design. A replacement tuning dial indicator works perfectly. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. The AM FM switch indicator knob is not missing, which happens a lot with this design. 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 are good original 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. This thing belongs in a museum!X
