eBay purchase in April 2007, not sure why I bought this one. The price
was rather cheap, with shipping being more than the winning bid.
Restoration was rather simple. Capacitors were changed and restuffed,
most of the old rubber coated wiring had to be replaced. On the first
power up with my battery eliminator, no sound was heard. This was later
traced down to a open I.F coil mounted below the chassis. Once this was
replaced, and the radio aligned, it sounded great.

The original finish on the top and sides was in
decent shape, so it was just touched up and preserved. The front and
trim along the base required a complete refinish. A new plastic dial
cover was made using a mold cut out of 1/4" plywood and some .020"
plastic. Below Center: The 40-100
