DESCRIPTION: Very rare and functional AM FM clock radio. It is very rare to find one of these tube radio models in AM FM much less with clock and in a nice contrasting color combo. This is the radio you will turn on and actually listen to! AM/FM Tabletop tube radio manufactured by RCA Victor in the early to mid-sixties time frame still in excellent+ working condition. This radio has a very good audio sound quality for design that is close to 50 years old. No cracks, splits, abrasions, or missing material anywhere on the cabinet! All original material and finish! No repaints or repairs. None needed. All knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing. Picks up AM and FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial with external antenna. Excellent mid-century design statement. Looks very Mad Men! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear but not high contrast. The front metal fascia is good condition considering its age. No missing numbering, dots or dashes, or anything. No smudges or yellowing. There are a few missing chips of chrome trim paint on the upper left corner of the clock surround frame not larger than 1/16" each. The corners of the clock face paper backing has light water stains. The clock works. The clock motor is quiet. The alarm works. The sleep function works. The clock set and alarm set work. The back panel is in excellent condition. The tuning and volume dials work fine. All out of spec 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. The original power cord and plug is in good working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. 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.
