PostSubject: San Fran Expo Radio   Fri Oct 15, 2010 11:32 am

Got a find at a local auction but not too sure what to bid up to. Looking to turn this around quick and help fund some other projects sitting around my house. Was thinking 150 max bid, what do you all think I could get for this on ebay. I did a search but found no previous auctions listed for this model.

I agree...if you can get it for $150, grab it and run!

Put my bid in for 250 today, it does not play but lights up so a little work if I win.

Good luck. Personally, if I were going to flip it, I wouldn't do anything to it, but maybe clean it up a bit. Some collectors out there (myself included) don't like to get radios that have been "worked" on in the past. If I were going to keep it, then I'd restore it. But, that's just me. Let us know how it goes.

I think this is one of those cases where preservation, not restoration would be appropriate.
I would not touch any original parts in it. Working or not.

So its value is not increased by working or not. Exactly how many of these exist or were made. Guess it really should be a museum piece then?
