53 Radio

(Thumbnail images, click on 'em)

A radio was included with the53. It had obviously been installed at one time, but was loose when I got the car.  The radio is a Sears Allstate All-Transistor model with a switchable ground plug.  Vintage is probably early 60's.  The speaker is on the bottom.  The right front quarter panel has the standard pair of holes where an antenna had been mounted.  I recently applied power to the radio with a length of wire shoved into the antenna socket --- IT WORKS.

I don't intend to reinstall the radio when I put the car back together, so I've begun looking for a good home for it.
