The RCA is interesting, I bought the same radio about a year ago, it has the motorized tuning which is a fun feature.
It has a lot of tubes . The one I have still plays and had some restoration done ( probably just filter caps) it would be fun to really go over it and make it work perfectly again. it sounds pretty good now. I also have an empty cabinet (missing most of one side) for a slightly larger version of this radio. which I hauled down to the meeting a while back.
one problem with them is the bakelite ( or is it Tennite) the curved piece that surrounds the dial. mine is a little warped but I fealt lucky that it is intact. These always shrink and I don’t know if anyone makes repros.
