A happy New Year to everyone.
A couple of years ago ( it has been in storage since – dry and warm ) I acquired an old Marconi radio. According to the Marconi service info, it is a model 49 or 51 and I do not have the expertise to tell which. It came in the cabinet shown. The holes for the controls appear to have been enlarged. My question is ” Is this a Marconi cabinet or did someone alter the control holes from a different radio to put this chassis in. ” I would appreciate any comments at all. I have not started to restore it and am actually wondering if it is going to be worth the work, especially if this is not the original cabinet.
Regards and thanks;

It almost looks like a Marconi Model 70. I restored one a few months back and it was a hoot to do.What does the Dial Face look like, does it have several lamps indicating what band the radio is set to? Sorry I can’t be of any more help.
Happy New Year and good Luck
