DESCRIPTION: This is a FM radio from mid-fifties timeframe. Rare to find a FM only radio in such a nice color combination. Manufactured by Granco in excellent+ working condition. Rare and hard to find manufacturer and model in a striking color combination. This is a factory painted black and pink radio. The cabinet was originally molded in all pink but painted contrasting black at the factory. Picks up FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, splits, or missing bakelite. There are a few flea bites on the cabinet where the black paint has chipped off. Could easily be touched up but they are so few and small that I just left it as is. This radio is over 60 years old! All original everything. The knobs are in excellent condition and securely attached. The tuning dial indicator is somewhat hard to see through the thin slit which was the manufacturer design. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. 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. 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
