Sweetheart Red and Pink Mid Century Retro 1959-1961 CBS Model C230 Vacuum Tube AM Clock Radio Rare Color Combo!

DESCRIPTION: From the personal collection of retired Chairman of CBS Global Marketing! See Retro Radio Farm blog on this collection. This antique radio was manufactured and marketed by CBS in 1959 to 1961 time frame. Rare odd original color combination. Probably conceived by either a color blind or overly romantic designer. Original colors and not a hybrid mutt because I've seen others like it. Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by CBS in 1959 to 1961 time frame in excellent+ working and physical condition. Cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, splits, or missing plastic. Few tiny micro-cracks beginning on top by the back edge. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. This radio is over 50 years old! The knobs are in very good condition. Tuning knob shows a little more wear. The clear dial face has no cracks. The gold surround pot metal trim is in excellent condition with no rust no pitting slightly oxidized. The lettering on the tuning dial is crisp and intact. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. 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 and keep accurate time. Clock motor is silent no humming no buzzing no ticking noises. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. 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 unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The replacement power cord and safety polarized plug is in excellent working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. Factory original backing board is in excellent condition slightly bowed in on clock side but securely attached. No missing factory labels. 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.

COLOR: Pink and Red. Yowza!
