This is a rare radio that features an electronic tuning dial! The radio powers on when plugged in and turned on I was able to hear a loud hum. It was not hooked up to an external antenna. He backlit dial light works nicely and looks awesome when lit up! I pressed a couple of the tuning presets and the electronic tuning mechanism seemed to be working as it should be! He wood cabinet is nice and solid and the finish looks really nice. There are some minor imperfections like you might expect on a piece from this era. All of the various dials and switches seem to be working as they should be. As you can see from the pictures, the chassis looks clean but the radio has been in storage for many years so I’m sure that it could use a good/thorough cleaning. I do not have the proper equipment to test this radio any further. Please be sure to preview all of the pictures so that you can determine the condition for yourself. The pictures were taken later in the day so the flash kicked in! Just a FYI on why some of the pics look a little more shiny.

Many of those radios got banged up quite a bit, but this particular one is still in excellent condition at 72 years old and is quite a find! The leatherette/vinyl covering over wood is still supple with good, deep hunter green color. No damage at all. The chrome face sort of speaks for itself with the reflected images in the photos. It has the original knobs and looks almost new. I say almost, because as with most of this model, the “Aria” stencil that was between the dial face and knobs was polished away at some point. It has a new replacement back panel. The chassis has been serviced and tested with all paper and electrolytic capacitors replaced. Tubes and resistors were replaced as needed. The electrical contacts and controls were detailed cleaned and lubricated. A new power cord and plug were installed. For Shortwave, a longer antenna wire will be needed. It will make a great display and conversation piece for many decors. Now that it is electronically restored, it will last for many more years of enjoyment.

Nice condition, with pretty good wood and trimming, not easy to find this model with so many parts in good condition. This model has 4 knobs under the radio station display. When plugging in the machine and turning the on off knob the player makes an obvious on sound. When turning the knob for radio you hear more of a buzzing sound, it probably only needs an antenna. When turning the knob to record the fan goes on and the turntable attempts to spin but barely goes it may just need some grease. All mechanical parts look like they are present. All wires look like they are connected to where they belong except for what looks like a part of the radio antenna. I noticed that what I think is the knob (On the left side panel) for the radio, as shown in picture of interior, the rubber grommet looks like it disconnected from the main pulley, I tried to push it back on but it needs more force. I suspect this only needs a minimum of work to get this up and running for all functions.
