The speaker is reconed, (cost me $50) after some previous owner spilled beer or something on it. Note the speaker faces up - so i recommend not setting your drink on the top of the radio. It has a new tuning belt and zenith repro pads for the chassis to sit on. I also hooked up a 3.5mm line for an ipod, but the radio does not have enough gain to play the ipod with any volume. I stripped and stained the cabinet, repainted the black base, followed by a coat of shellac, then numerous coats of lacquer, then spent a lot of time polishing it.So the cabinet looks pretty nice, as shown in the photos. The knob on the left side broke at some point in its life before me, and has been glued back together. The reception is not all that great, but will improve markedly if you connect it to an outside roof antenna. But then it's only a 5 tube set and is desirable more for looks than for pulling in distant stations. If you want this to play to its maximum potential it should be given an alignment with better equipment than what i have.
This set has a spring loaded tuning system, and it sticks around 1400 kc. Also, it seems to have an intermittent problem with one of the speaker wires causing the reception to cut out, which i wasn't able to track down. However, it has been playing without problem for the last 6 hours. This radio is not professionally restored and was not restored for the purpose of resale. I do this as a hobby and i had to let this one go.So, it is "as is". I set the reserve at $100. Will be by ups ground.
