Beautiful 1939 Crosley C-548 Art Deco Bakelite Radio Catalin-like Restoration For Sale
Welcome to another Back_In_Timemachines sale! The items sold here are genuine antique or vintage mechanical items that have been correctly and professionally restored or items found in excellent original condition. We reject the idea that “vintage” has to mean, rusty, scratched, dirty or “untested”.
FOR sale TODAY:
A beautiful, c.1939 CROSLEY MODEL C-548 radio - with 6 tubes and both AM broadcast and Shortwave. The bakelite case, one of Crosley's earliest, has a custom one-of-a-kind paint restoration of the highest professional quality. The artist chose to feature this radio in a rich smoky green accented with two different tones of candy apple gold. The result is a catalin-like look; absolutely stunning - awesome, extreme mixes with a mirror smooth finish for a look as cool as you can get - an outrageous, one-of-a-kind piece! This very special radio is housed in an Art Deco meets Machine-Age inspired case with a design that looks like a machine deposited here by an advanced alien race! If you're looking for a beautiful unique piece - this is it! This radio's physical condition is near mint - no chips, cracks or breaks.
This Crosley has a six-tube, superhet chassis with two bands - this is different from the C-548 5-tuber you often see on . It was repaired to playing condition and the radioreceives stations on the AM band very well with strong sound, also plays on SW with a band switch in the rear. No back.
Please review the super-sized pictures for all details and ask any questions before offerding. Please WAIT for an invoice so I can add in insurance to shipping.
The Buy-It-Now of $875 is a fair price for this beautiful radio so don't mess around if you've lost other customs.
NOTE: We can add a panel mounted mini-jack that turns this beautiful, 65 year-old radio into an MP3/Digital FM/iPod music player. Let us know after the sale ends and this can be added for a flat $65 installation fee.
