Looks like a neat project Ben! Wish I could find cheap stuff around here at garage sales. There's not really anything good "left" and when it is, the garage sale seller wants something ridiculous like $50.00 for a beat-up, as-is, burnt-smelling radio Sad

Yeah got luck with this one. Actually brought this one and the previous project (Sparton 75A) form the same person. Package deal 2 for $45. Found an RCA Victor 29K console yesterday for $50. All the parts are there. The case is a little scratched up but the chassis looks good and I hear a little music but very faint. Even has the swing out Magic Loop antenna still intact.

Pickings are slim around here as well but every once in a blue moon I catch a one or two and jump on it quick.

The Emerson AR173 is complete. This turned out to be a very fun and easy project. Time for a new project. I have an old Hilco 38-12 that is in piece so I guess I'll start on that in the next few days. Or not.

Thanks guys. Wish I could find more like this one. It is amazing how much sellers think old radios are worth in junky, unrestored condition. Oh well, on the hunt again.
