My Sister and her Hubby brought the radio up last night looks like it will be an interesting restoration! speaker needs re- coning and a dial glass and speaker cloth Doug

It's alive It's alive!!! Got her up and running after some major speaker repair(amazing what a kid with a pencil can do to a speaker!!).Looks like the electrolytics were replaced, I put in a new power cord hooked it up to my varitran v-1 to power it up slow and lo and behold I got a nice clear station.The pilot light socket is bad though need a new one. Thanks to all that helped Doug

That pilot lamp socket can be rebuilt.
