Vintage Atwater Kent Breadboard Radio Model #4550:
Vintage Atwater Kent Breadboard, Number 4550. This is an original and unmolested set that I acquired a number of years backfrom a local TV/Radio parts store thatclosed up after many years of service. This was the kind of store that when you went in it had the old wood floors that creaked, no computers, receipts were written out by hand, you could go behind the counter and get your own parts if you knew where they were at. This and a number of other radios sat on upper shelfs that were aroundthe store just for display.I remember seeing them when I used to go in there with my dad in the mid 60's so they been there quite a while. They never were for sale till the store finally closed and I was able to aquire this oneand a few others. When it finally came off the shelf there was so much dust on it that nothing was ledgable. I used a little air to blow off the major dust and that is how its pictured now. When I got it there was threecorrect tubes and the other two were just in the sockets to fill a space but were not the correct 01"As . Replaced those two with the right ones and this is just about all that was done to it. Theseare included and will be bubble wrapped individually and shipped with the radio. Hooked it up to a battery eliminator and radio worked fine. As you can see in the picture I cleaned off a couple of spots to see the finish underneath and all looks well. The one coil has loose wires as seen in photo, I left it as is. This is a chance to get one that's not put together and has a lot of providence. Sold as is. Please e-mail with any questions.
