It does so with a simulated walnut finish that still looks like new! While there were five color combinations made for this radio, the walnut finish one is hard to find. The cabinet is in excellent condition with no damage. It has a bottom mount chassis, so the back of the radio displays as nicely as the front and sides. It also has tone control for your listening preference. And of course a. S with all of the radios I restore, it has been gone over with the utmost attention to detail. The “modern plastic” cabinet was completely disassembled and cleaned, then buffed to a wondrously smooth, shiny and lustrous finish. The dial face graphics are crisp, clear and very nicely lighted with two bulbs. There are a few very small wear marks on the cabinet as seen in the photos that do not detract from the appearance of the radio. The center brass medallion was polished. The original knobs were polished. The unique original grill cloth has some minor wear to the right side. The photos say the rest about how pristine this radio is and how well it displays. Electronically, the chassis was restored, cleaned and serviced, with. Paper/wax and electrolytic capacitors replaced. Tubes and resistors were replaced as needed. All controls and contacts were detail cleaned and lubricated. Wiring and other components were replaced as needed. The radio was aligned, peaked and tuned for optimal reception and quality of sound using the internal loop antenna. Very attractive at 72 years old and highly collectible, this rare radio will provide many more years of reliable visual and audio delight since being. Restored, as long as it is properly cared for. Note: Tube radios consist of a variety of vacuum tubes, capacitors, resistors and other electronic components. This radio has been disassembled, cleaned, and components tested. All non-functioning or suspect components were replaced. Vacuum tubes are similar to light bulbs in that an interior filament heats up inside the vacuum tube. When the filament burns out, the tube will need to be replaced. The tubes in this radio are in good. The longevity of the tube and its filaments is related to the length of time the radio is operated and the frequency of turning the radio power on and off.
