Recommended Posts

For sale is a complete AM radio setup from a 1938 Oldsmobile. This may fit other years, but please check your application.


This is a complete factory original setup. The box section mounts to the firewall under the dash, above the driver pedals. The box section contains the speaker and radio itself, complete with all the original tubes. The speaker is completely intact, with no visible damage to the paper cone or the cloth fibers that go over top of the speaker on the box housing. The radio is operated by two Bowden cables that mount to the right side of the dash. The cables work free and tune the radio. There is no binding in the cables or in the tuning dial. The Bakelite knob that rotates the Bowden cables is cracked and broken. The Bakelite ring that goes around the station numbers is likewise discolored and cracked.


All of the wires that go to this unit (power supply, ground, and antenna are complete and were not cut or otherwise modified. This is a complete time capsule, taken from a 1938 Oldsmobile that has not been on the road since 1960. You do not want to miss out on this one!


Asking $150/OBO, FREE SHIPPING to continental US.
