A radio's value depends on a number of factors, including condition and it's desirability to a collector. Unfortunately, it's virtually impossible to evaluate a radio sight unseen. We recommend that you seek the advice of a competent collector or restorer. A SCARS event is a great place to make contact with someone who can assist you with an accurate appraisal.
Members are welcome to sell at any of our swap meets or designated auction events. If you are not a member, SCARS membership is inexpensive and is usually available at most of our events. You may also post your item for sale on the SCARS Forum, or peruse other online resources.
SCARS swap meets are an excellent local source for vintage parts. Many vendors have these items on display, and can usually assist in locating what you need. There are a number of online parts suppliers as well.
