I don't know anything about old radios. This will receive AM stations (limited) after warming up. I am selling it as is, so consider rewiring if you plan to use it. Maybe you want it for the tubes. If you have any suggestions as to how you'd like it shipped please let me know.
Condition: Works. Scratched and dinged. This hasn't sat on a shelf all it's life... it's been used!
Color is a dark, maroon red. I think it's cute. I will ship it for $12.00 USPS Parcel Post with delivery confirmation and insurance. Priority Mail available upon request at cost (zone rates from 97023). I accept Paypal or a Personal Check for payment (check must clear before I ship).

USPS is messing with their shipping costs again and Parcel Post is changing (and going up), so I have raised my shipping cost to cover (hopefully) this change. If I have over estimated the cost by more than a couple of dollars, I will refund you the difference.
