This apology for a radio
was proffered to me in part exchange for a VCR repair.
It's missing its loudspeaker
and the metal plate that fixes behind the dial and its back panel.
It looks as if its been outside for years on a rubbish dump.
It's in such poor condition a woodworm, whose attempt at eating
the case is evidenced by a single hole in the side, must have
found it as unpalatable as it looks. Veneer is peeling off, all
the glue holding the woodwork together has dissolved away and
the parts are merely held together by friction, the chassis is
red with rust, the dial cord has rotted away and a lot of the
scale lettering has gone. There may be one or two salvageable
parts inside... I won't know until I've examined it. As far as
restoration is concerned.... it's only redeeming feature is that
it's so bad it might make an interesting challenge or maybe not...
