Not the most exciting of vintage clock radios but this one works and it works very well. I have others that work but apparently need an antennae. This one uses the cord as an antennae and picks up station after station although they are all AM stations. Plus the clock works including the second hand. It is missing the knobs for the clock though. I have a feeling there are replacements available.
Almost all the information is in the title, General Electric Model 512F from 1951. Too add to this it is also a tube radio. So far I have not found an on/off switch. Usually the volume switch would double for that. I will figure it out eventually.
According to the site I found for the information on this it is made from modern plastic and not Bakelite. I do like the colors still.
