I bought this one from Kijiji and I did restore the chassis changing out all the caps and a few resistors.
and I put in a new eye tube.
The cabinet was very solid but the old lacquer was bad, so I stripped it , applied dark walnut stain and added
Mohawk extra dark walnut toned lacquer on the top and bottom.
The plastic lens was like new, so that was a bonus.
it has the original knobs and grill cloth.
Radio Daze had the decals I needed, which really make the difference.
It came out very good.

I think I have the same one only on mine the dial is slightly different. on mine the dial was so shabby that I recreated it in a graphics program and it worked out OK. Its a nice art deco radio.
this was one of my first restorations may dad did the cabinet and I did the chassis.August 2, 2018 at 1:15 pm #10335
