I bought this GE model 106,which is the same as a RCA model 262.
The cabinet is a mess ,but I can sort that out in the spring.
It needs a new top and needs to be re glued in many places. It has 10 tubes with push pull outputs.
The grill cloth is still there , but needs to be cleaned, and all the knobs are original along with the tubes.
I paid $60.00 for it: probably too much because I saw the same radio in Eastern Canada on Kijiji for $60.00 with a beautiful cabinet. But I do enjoy rescuing these types of radios.

I still can't post more then three photos.

I have it all done now.
It was a chore to do the cabinet, but it turned out nice and the radio plays very good.
Here are the final photos : only three photos on this post

This is amazing especially considering how much finish loss and deep scratches you had to deal with. An excellent job as always!

Very nice, as always. I'd also love to see your chassis restorations.

Thanks Bill:
My chassis restorations are probably the same as almost anybody else's.
I think I do most everything that the other guys do, blow the dust out
change all the caps, test tubes , clean pots, replace wires where needed. and check resistors. Then align the radio
I don't take many photos of the underside unless I think I might run into something that requires taking a few thing out to get at a cap.
