DESCRIPTION: This is rare and collectible radio design from one of my personal favorite manufacturers. It is so retro and kinda in-your-face but still retro hip and relevant looking to me. Just the right amount of kitsch to make a statement. But, not too much old fashioned funk. Tabletop Tube AM radio manufactured by Truetone in 1950's excellent working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is original molded cool mint green color plastic not repainted. The front white grill is in very good clean condition. Very good condition cabinet. There is a small chip and crack on the top right corner. The front white grill has a hairline crack in the center. The green back has one or two vent slat missing. Someone once melted one of the back attachment screw holes in order to accommodate a flat head screw presumably to repair a broken attach screw pillar internally. I feel they could have done a cleaner job. Knobs are original and nicely yellowed to a deep golder color. This radio is almost 60 years old! No dial light. Not designed with one. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is 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. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage!
