This is a near-mint example of a great-sounding 1970’s vintage AM/FM (Mono) transistor radio. Reception is absolutely killer, and even more so when you connect an external antenna, but honestly it isn’t really required. The nostalgic blue light dial only appears when the radio is powered up. It has AFC and will lock onto a given frequency if its capable. There’s also a “Loud” button, but honestly it doesn’t do a lot except boost the bottom end. The radio is LOUD as it is, and will serve you well for years to come.
No servicing has been done to this radio. It’s 100% solid state (transistors) and if it works, its not broken… and therefore, I didn’t “fix it.” I cleaned it up to the best of my ability, and checked it thoroughly for correct operation.
The case is a very soft balsa-wood like material with a faux-finish, and other than just keeping it clean, I’m not sure it can be “refinished” per se. There are 50 years of shelf wear present on this radio, and a minor bit of damage to the back panel which doesn’t affect the operation in any way.
This radio will be packed very well, probably too well, and shipping to the US is INCLUDED in the price of this radio. International buyers, contact me for other arrangements.
