DESCRIPTION: These Crosley Rancheros are some of the highest quality designs from any manufacturer of the period. The quality of the materials is unsurpassed. This particular radio is a rare factory evergreen color. Most Rancheros I've come across are red tomato looking color. All Rancheros are rare to begin with. This particular Ranchero has been repainted the original factory evergreen color. The color match is nearly identical. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Crosley in 1959 in excellent+ condition. This quality manufacturer is one of the only ones still around today and still making radios. Incredible! This radio is as solid as a brick. No cracks. No chips. No major scratches. Original factory color glossy no scratches, chips, or abrasions. There's a lot of pot metal trim on this design so it's rather heavy. Nice! The metal pieces of this particular radio are slightly bubbly from surface rust that has been polished. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. A rare model in a rare color. The repainted grill is a white color no flaking. Knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is over 60 years old! No dial light. Not designed with one. There are no cracks on the top. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable will be getting a stress relief bushing and run through the back. These power cables would fatigue and break at the interconnect with a hefty radio like this. 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!
