DESCRIPTION: Rare and beautiful turquoise Philco with push buttons that work! Reminds me of the push button transmissions of the era like in a 1960 Dodge Dart Phoenix. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Philco in 1959 in excellent+ working condition. No chips, cracks, or major scratches. The cabinet is in excellent condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is original factory molded glossy turquoise color. No exterior repairs or repaints. None needed. This radio is over 60 years old! All the dial number is crisp and clear. The clock face is original. No missing knobs. Knobs are original and securely fastened. The tuning knob attach post is not cracked which is more important. The tuning dial works fine. The clock works and keep accurate time. The volume knob is missing the metal center insert. The push buttons are securely attached and don't pop off. The push buttons return to same level position. A few are cracked from over zealous use but have been repaired. Hardly any rub off on the button function lettering. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with high quality 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. Original backing board is intact with solid mount points. Original bottom factory labels are intact, legible, not rips no missing sections. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected.
