DESCRIPTION: Tabletop Tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Motorola in 1956 excellent+ working condition. Bi-level clock and radio design. Clock is uniquely cantilevered off to the left at a slightly higher level than the radio section. This is reminiscent of euro architecture and furniture designs from the late fifties and early sixties. Post-modernist proportions with bright period hues that bespeak of technological and economic optimism and American confidence. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition. Original molded urea plastic in sea green color. There was a crack across the top and bottom left side that has been repaired and repainted. This radio is over 50 years old! Motorola label on front speaker grill is in excellent condition. The knobs are in excellent condition. Please see the photo close-up. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. 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 for a mechanical analog design. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. The sleep function works. The clock motor is quiet on this one. There is a appliance timer function in back. I'll bet it works if the alarm function works, but I cannot think of a good reason to use it nowadays. Pretty superfluous function even back in the fifties. 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. Backing board is in good condition with crisp square corners. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
