I'm cleaning up (again!!) and have reluctantly decided I should consider getting rid of some more radios. The radio 'on the spot' now is a Hallicrafters S-40B that I have started restoration work on. I will have some pictures available for anyone interested later but for now I can say that, while the radio is largely complete, it is in serious need of restoration - the cabinet has some white house paint on it and the front panel finish is rough with surface rust and lots of missing paint. Some of the knobs are missing as is the bandspread window. The case is whole with no extra holes - but it sure needs refinishing! 

I did (finally!) get the knobs off the control shafts, have pulled the chassis out of the case and removed the front panel. The chassis is pretty decent, all complete, with tubes and even a good speaker. Of course, it needs new caps, etc, etc. 

I am thinking $30 for the radio with shipping included - sort of thinking $10 plus $20 for the shipping. At least I think I can ship it  DHL  for that.  I'm going to take a closer look at this later today as well as take a few pictures. If anyone is interested, drop me a email and we can chat on the subject.

I had hoped to restore it but the number of projects exceeds my time available!
