I wonder if that's one of the Japanese built RCA's. The cord with the thin plug,  size of set, and, styling like it may have been.

There is one on etsy, and keep an eye on ebay. I was looking for a RCA model and lucked up on etsy. I got it and shipped for about 30 bucks total. I don't think I have one but I will look this weekend.

I've seen a number of those on eBay.

Here's one for example--more of a parts set, so maybe they'll take your offer.

I have that radio. It has the normal tubes 35W4, 50C5, 12AV6, 12BE6, and 12BA6. At some point they went with their own tubes and they weren't interchangeable with the normal line up.

I have the knobs for one. I got mine as a parts set. I used the speaker, robbed the tubes and canned the rest. The cabinet was really broken up when I got it, so it was not worth saving. The printed circuit board was broken as well. I needed the output transformer.

Hey ... good for you! It's nice to find something particular that you are looking for. I did that a few years ago with a small radio that we had when I was a kid. I did it much like you did ... advertised ... got a lead on ebay ...bought it ... still have it.

Likewise. My interest in collecting radios began when I sought to replace a GE "Red Baron" transistor radio I had as a teen. I was surprised how challenging that was, but eventually succeeded... and then bought a Blue Max to keep it company. Still have those in my collection..
