DESCRIPTION: RARE Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Motorola in 1960 excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in very good condition but yellowed throughout due to age. There is a hairline crack on the front upper right corner. The rare and expensive cast pot metal front facade is unusual and in excellent condition with no rust, oxidation, or tarnishing. Most Motorola metal facades are aluminum sheet which suffers with time and moisture. This radio is over 55 years old!  No missing labels. The knobs are in excellent condition but yellowed. This model came with push buttons and they still work. Amazing. The clear dial face has no cracks or major scratches. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The Motorola label is intact with no warping, rub-off or fading.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 for a mechanical analog design. The clock motor is quiet. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. 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 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!
