The Model number on this radio is 444. This radio was produced in the 1946 era. This was an fairly popular radio when it was introduced in 1940′s & still is by today’s standards. The RED Metal cabinet on this Beauty is Wonderful looking that has been REPAINTED by a previous owner & they did a nice job on it ” Not Perfect ” as it has a few small minor Nicks/imperfections. The louvered Speaker Grill adds a Super Nice Touch to the overall design of the cabinet. The Shinny Glossy finish looks Nice. This cabinet has been cleaned & re-polished which produces a nice sheen or shine. I have taken many pictures of this nice looking radio & all pictures can be supersized so you may get a good view at this Nice Looking & working radio. The metal Brass dial scale is Clean & in good condition. With some aged patina. The 2 ivory colored Bakelite Plastic. Control knobs are in nice condition & work well. The original Metal back panel is in good condition that holds on tight & secure. The is No antenna system. A Long Green Wire has been installed for the antenna & that wire Must be Stretched out in one direction or another for reception. The chassis is in good condition & it is a 4-tube unit with 2-controls & both controls have been lubricated & are in good working condition. The tube line up is 1-12SQ7, 1-12SA7, 1-35Z5 & 1-50L6. The chassis has had all New electrolytic capacitor/filters installed & some wax/paper capacitors were replaced as needed & a New electric cord has been installed. This radio has been restored to working condition. NOW THIS IS A 4-TUBE UNIT & SENSITIVITY & THE RECEPTION IS “NOT” a Very Sensitive radio. JUST USING THE LONG GREEN ANTENNA WIRE ALONE IS REALLY NOT ENOUGH. I PERSONALLY HAVE CONNECTED THIS UP TO AN OLD PAIR OF TV (RABBIT EARS) ANTENNA TO THE LONG WIRE & THAT HELPS FOR BETTER RECEPTION. I ALSO CONNECTED/ATTACHED THIS LONG GREEN WIRE TO MY ALUMINUM WINDOW FRAME & THE RADIOS RECEPTION WORK VERY WELL/ “LOT BETTER”. ESPECIALLY WHEN CONNECTED/ATTACHED THAT LONG GREEN WIRE TO MY ALUMINUM WINDOW FRAME & THE RADIOS RECEPTION WORKED A “LOT BETTER”. This ARVIN MIDGET RED RADIO would make an Excellent addition to your radio collection or as a stand alone radio as it’s power & beauty will surely be the talk of the room by all whom enter. Sized of this Fabulous Gem is 6-1/2″ Long, 4-1/4″ Wide/Deep & 5-1/2 High. This is a vintage radio & must be handled & cared for & treated in this manor & not like a modern day boombox. Tube radio technology “unlike modern day solid state radios” can have interference/noise in the sound quality, caused by kitchen appliances, computer monitors, flat screen TV’S, florescent lights, washing machines, high power wires above your home, etc… So where you position/place this radio in your home can make a huge difference & the direction/position it is set in. A lot of tube radios are directional meaning you “may” have to turn the radio one way or the other to receive the best reception. Tube radio usually take 30 to 45 seconds after they have been turned/powered ON before they will start playing as the tubes have to warm up. I package very well for a safe arrival. If you have any questions please ask & I will promptly answer & as best as I can. Please ask questions before the end of the sale & not after. Thanks for looking I appreciate it.
