I found this at the dump closer to my house. I literally pulled up and I saw this old man emptying out his trunk. I offered to help him and just carried the stuff from his car to my trunk.

Volume and Tone knobs.

Crank handle that tunes int the channels. This is a plug in piece and it no longer works.

    Wow, a little too Americana for my tastes but excellent nonetheless. Is there a date on it? 1950’s?

    Does the sound come out of the horn shooting out of the front? That’s a whole lotta radio for a teeny tiny speaker making for excellent kitsch sound possibilities.

    What else was in the guy’s trunk?

    No date anywhere on this. Makes me so curious. I also nabbed a “Happy Days” game and a “Charlie’s Angels” game with Farah. I think both are posted here.
