BENDIX RADIO
Model 687A
Superheterodyne
Product of Bendix Aviation Corporation
Bendix Radio Division - Baltimore, MD

This is a portable suitcase AC/DC tube radio. My best guess is it's dated between 1947 - 1949. I just picked it up at a yard sale in Rockville, MD on 9/25/2010. It still works, and is in immaculate condition for a 60+ year old radio.

SOLD on 11/24/10 for $40.00.

    Thats Awesome ! OMG $40.00 ????? Whoever got that got a GREAT deal !

    You think??? The guy I sold it to brought a catalog with him that showed it valued around that price. I wanted around $75 for it, but he wouldn't budge and when he showed me it's value I just went ahead and sold it. What do YOU think it's true value was?

    Well look at this site :

    Some hefty prices there !!

    Those seem to be ones that are all bakelite as oppose to just bakelite knobs... plus probably more sought after. I picked it for $20 from a collector who was having a garage sale. I still made $20.

    I just love old radio's , being a radio station owner. I would love to find an old working wurlitzer :-)

    Thanks for the advice Jason... I'll certainly keep that in mind for future sales.
