    Electronic buffs... Are these worth restoring or best for parts... Any rarities?

    Thank you in advance for any advice.

      Restoring the wood is what I'd do and then they would look good in a living room.

      Clean them up and display them as is.

      If they have most of the electronics still in place and if you bought them REALLY cheap, I think you could clean them and sell them as restoration projects for something around 70 (the philco) to 100 (the zenith, maybe) bucks each and still make some money.

      They don't seem to be in good shape and would require a lot of work to be restored. There are knobs and buttons missing, broken dials, the Zenith needs a new speaker, grille cloth for all of them, wood work...and I can't tell anything about the electronics.
