DESCRIPTION: This radio came out of a time machine from 1957. Dead stock mint condition. Not a blemish. No cracks, no chips, no scratches. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment.This radio is over 50 years old! No missing Motorola label on front speaker grill. The knobs are in excellent condition. The clear tuning knob surround is clean and clear with no rub off lettering. The clear dial face has no stress cracks or scratches. Please see the photo close-up. The gold metal front faschia is clean gold metal no scratches no dings no rust or tarnish. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock 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 clock works and keep accurate time. The alarm works. The clock and alarm set function work. The Radio-On-Off-Alarm markings work perfectly with crisp indetentions. There is a appliance timer function in back. I'll bet it works if the alarm function works, but I cannot think of a good reason to use it nowadays. Pretty superfluous function even back in the fifties. 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. The power cord is a new replacement. 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!
