DESCRIPTION: If you are fantasizing about a sixties designer kitchen in (putrid) pea green, this is the kitchen radio for you! Tabletop tube AM clock radio manufactured by Admiral in 1955 in excellent working condition. This was one of Admiral's rarely seen models from the 50's. Cabinet is original molded pea green color. No cracks anywhere! All original everything! No repaints, repairs, or substitutions. Looks like the cabinet back and the front grill are different shades of plastic but actually look more similar in real person. The photo lighting makes the cabinet back look more like a Gumby green, but it is actually a pea green in reality. Knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is over 60 years old! No dial light. Not designed with one. Clock works, keeps accurate time, and is very quiet. Alarm works. Sleep function works. Radio works well with good reception and low noise. 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!
