WHY" BUY IT NOW"
I list on a "BUY IT NOW" basis. I am unconvinced that auctions are a good buying experience.
You are obliged to "watch" something you want to buy for up to 10 days. Then, to stand a chance of winning you often have to set a date to be at your computer to enter a last minute bidding lottery, usually at an inconvenient time.
You end either dissapointed or concerned you have paid too much! Surely life is too short.
If you see something you like, and are happy with the price you should be able to secure it immediately.
No fuss. No problems.
BEWARE EBAY BARGAINS
Many vintage radios on ebay are poorly listed , without care, accuracy or honesty. You dont know exactly what you are buying from out of focus photo(s), and a scant description saying "untested as I dont have a battery". This may mean the bargain buy radio does not work and has iredeemable cosmetic issues. In short it becomes an expensive mistake that will never look or sound "right".
You may find such examples of this radio selling for less in ebay auctions. But with this radio you know exactly what you are going to get. I have provided a range of good clear photos, and a detailed accurate and honest description. The radio will have been cleaned and fully checked before despatch. I offer a full refund if the radio does not match description.
A working vintage radio in great condition offers tremendous value for money. Old radios are collectible, useable, and enjoyable, may well hold or increase in value, and many areavailable at a fraction of the cost of a new DAB radio that will struggle to match the sound quality, and certainly not the style.
This vintage radio is just a lovely thing to have. Buy It Now.
SAVE NOW: MULTPLE PURCHASE DISCOUNT
You may be interested in more than one of my radio listings? Purchase two or more at the same time, and I will be happy to apply a 10% discount applied to the combined Buy It Now prices of the radios. Further I will charge shipping at cost for the parcel with multiple radios. You will always save money pro rata on the shipping. For example to ship one radio to the United States generally costs £35, the cost for two will be around £45 (£22.50 each).
If you want to buy with the multiple doscount offer, dont delay (someone else can always buy while the listing is "live"), simply complete the Buy It Now for the radios, and I will adjust my paypal payment request to you accordingly.
STOP PRESS UK NEWS
ANALOGUE VINTAGE RADIOS REMAIN USEABLE UNTIL 2019 (& PROBABLY MUCH LATER)
Digital switchover plans for radio are a complete mess. The DAB technology simply is not capturing the public imagination, and the compresed sound of digital is a retrograde step for many. Because digital radio sales are so slow, and hardly any cars currently have DAB radios, the switchover TARGET date HAS BEEN DELAYED TO 2019. Many observers including this one, believe that even the 2019 TARGET will be missed and that vintage analogue radios will continue to be useable and the prefered choice of many listeners well into the 2020s.

About UsWe are Peter and Judy and we live in the Worcestershire countryside. I am an avid collector and restorer of vintage portable radios, and have a collection of around 300 sets. I tend to be tempted to buy many more than I can possibly keep, and sell on duplicate and surplus sets to make room for more! The time I spend restoring and checking radios for sale is rarely recovered in the sale price. You benefit from my enthusiasm! I always try to provide a good range of clear pictures and a detailed accurate description so you know exactly what you are buying.
