    thanks rogersflipdial. this is the type of radio i am looking to buy. however, the plastic is damged @ the bottom left. there is no way to properly restore chipped plastic. (there was a similar one just on ebay for $35/us but it had a 3 inch crack) contact me if you have any others…thanks

    an AGS High Fi AM/FM Two speaker tube radio with AFC , made in Japan near perfect cosmetically.looks like it lived most of it’s life in a box somewhere.
    unusually long at 17 1/2 inches wide.
    This one I find interesting because it was the last of the last. when Japan started making radios this far advanced, I think transistors had already taken over the market and this one was one of the last before transistors took over. Open to offers.

    Hello: I have a Electrohome Radio Model 5C8 which was similar to the one posted previously. I believe mine was manufactured in 1968.
    It is Charcoal and Oyster white. A very nice Radio.
