Vintage Champion Spark Plug Store Advertising Display W/am Transistor Radio, Nr For Sale

Vintage Champion Spark Plug Store Advertising Display W/am Transistor Radio, Nr


You are offerding on a Champion Spark Plug store display with built-in AM transistor radio in great working condition. This cool collectible is from the late 1950s - early 1960s. The plastic plug measures approx. 13.5" long, 4" in diameter at its widest point, and is 14.25" tall when mounted to the base. The grey top rotates for on/off/volume, the lower white part rotates for tuning in stations. Works fine, just remember it is still 50+ year-old technology. There is superficial handling wear to the plug, but no chips or cracks. The base has a small crack near the mounting hole which does not affect stability, but does cause the plug to lean a bit to that side. Please check all my photos carefully.

There are small triangles between the 6 & 7 and the 12 & 16 on the dial. These are CD marks, which appeared on all radios manufactured or sold in the U.S. from 1953 to 1963. CD stood for Civil Defense and was taken very seriously in the 50’s and 60’s due to the communist “red scare.”

To counteract the potential for a Russian air attack on North America, the US Government enacted the CONELRAD program, which stood for CONtrol of ELectromagnetic RADiation. CONELRAD established two civil defense frequencies, 640 and 1240 kilohertz. During times of emergencies, all stations except the CONELRAD stations at 640 and 1240 AM would cease operations. Damn commies!

A fresh 9V battery is included - just turn it on and enjoy swingin' AM radio. A great addition to your collection...Good luck & happy offerding!
