DESCRIPTION: Absolutely stunning all original no chips or cracks in incredible red and white contrasting color combo. I'm drooling over this one. I've never seen this red and white combination. The turquoise and white is far more common. Table top tube AM radio manufactured by RCA Victor in 1957 in excellent working condition. Cabinet is original molded red and white color. These models usually have chipped corners because the corners are so sharp. Amazing this one survived all these years without getting dropped. Knobs are original and securely attached. The volume knob is cracked and missing its center gold metal cap. Don't try to remove these knobs. They don't come off from the front. Lots of people have tried removing these umbrella knobs and they crack easily. This radio is almost 60 years old! There is no dial light. Not designed with one. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. There is a small scratch on the front center metal fascia by the tuning dial. Nice mid century sleek design.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!
