Ugliest radio I have ever bought

Post by willy3486 on Tue Apr 01, 2014 2:58 pm

I think I paid way too much for this but I got it to part out. If it looked better I would keep it. Why would they put so many tubes in one is beyond me. Anyway its a Zenith and I paid a hefty 100 bucks for it. I prefer RCA and tabletops. But I ran across this ugly piece and thought I would part it out. I probably double my money. I think I will chop the top off the radio and make a stand for a TV. Anyway I wish it had been different so I would keep it as is.

The guy I got it from also had this for 10 bucks. I had a guy lined up to buy the amp to convert to a home stereo or guitar amp. So I made 40 bucks off of this and got to keep the cabinet. I am making a book shelf out of it to sit my TV on.

You can't fool me (this time), Willy.  That one is a '58.  Good thing I want a '61, or that would concern me.  I wouldn't set a bigger tv than about an 80" on top of those glass lids, though.   Razz

You should send it to these folks. They know all about getting rid of those ugly old radio characteristics....

Sadly, this is no April Fools joke.

Sorry folks I don't have it. Seriously I was hoping some would get a kick out of this post considering what yesterdays date was. A few years ago I posted that some woman took out in a small plane and found her husband with his girlfriend. I said she crash landed in front of them. I said no one was hurt but you couldn't get through for all the emergency vehicles and cop cars. It went viral and folks were trying to figure out how to get around the area. Some even went out sight seeing trying to get a glimpse of the airplane. For a couple of hours cars were going slow in front of my house.

I was wondering where it was going to come from, and here it was. The $10 tv stand tore the envelope.  Laughing  Somebody better tell Bill, I think you hooked him up!  Very Happy

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder... Those folks must have eyes that would make Bette Davis look like Alice The Goon!

Willy got me.  I thought he was serious for a moment.  There is one in every crowd, and I guess I am it.  Thank God for dim bulbs like me.   Rolling Eyes

Jees Louise, Dr. Radio! Do you know how hard it is to clean vomit off of a laptop?
