Grundig Radio Identification

Post by dcairns on Mon Mar 12, 2012 5:07 pm

I am trying to identify this old radio that my parents had when I was a kid. I have looked through some websites that list lots of old Grundigs, but have not found any with the sloped sides (other than the smaller bakelite radios). My goal is to identify it so I can try and find one to buy and fix up.

Looks like a Sabel to me.

Is Sabel a model of Grundig or a brand of it's own?

As far as I know, they made their own equipment. It was a name. Not a model.

I didn't find much on Sabel, but I did find a brand called SABA (also seems to be know as Saba-Wildbad) that made radios that look a lot like Grundigs. They even have some of the things that I see in my old photo, like the magic eye above the volume control and brass centers on the knobs. But the emblems don't seem to match, they seemed to always have a Saba script on them, not the V. And so far, none with sloped sides. I am beginning to feel like I am on a fool's errand trying to track down this radio. They were a lot more prolific in models and brands that I would have guessed.
