The photo shows its present condition; it goes, and I intend to tidy it up.
An unusual feature of this radio is that it has a factory painted top and base instead of a full woodgrain finish, the paint being an obscure greenish colour which shows up faithfully in the photo.
The hard part will be finding new paint for the top and base, it might have been a 'company colour'? A fine sanding of the surface should reveal the original tint for colour matching. I know not to sand the "wood grain" as it might come off and I have purchased one of those small aerosol spray kits to do a perfect paint and varnish job on it.
It has the original 230Va.c. plug and cord.
It has a 5-band lateral dial for New Zealand.
It is not small:-General Dimensions: 21"Wx15"Hx10.5"D (540x380x270)
The radio was a grab-it-now purchase at a junk shop in Rotorua NZ for $50 (NZ$60) in 1996. When restored it will have pride of place in my sitting room where it will be used as a radio!
I think it is a great design and has character.
