FM stations come clearly without attached antenna wire. Cabinet is original mint condition top and sides red plastic with white back and bottom trim. Blue clock arms and brand graphics. Very patriotic color scheme. Not repainted. No cracks, dents, or dings on cabinet. There is a stress crack by on/off/alarm switch. The on/off/alarm switch is missing its counter clockwise No chips, deep abrasions or missing material. Very cool and usable everyday. This radio is over 50 years old! By mid sixties, AM/FM radios were faux wood and metal trim. You know the look: it lasted until the early seventies. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Missing tone knob. The kitschy-est! The tuning dial works fine. Original power cable is securely attached no breaks, splits, or exposed wiring. 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 intermittently. The dial light blinks on and off intermittently. 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 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, gas was 25 cents a gallon!!
