This EMERSON 587A is the more classy and appealing model of the 587 line due to the nifty woven grille compared to the later production 587B with the metal version. The material of the casing was a new plastic of the era known as Plaskon, this one in Black/Ebony (some models were also in White/Ivory). Suitable for Restoration, Rejuvenation or Essential Parts. Please look at all the pictures (actual, not stock) part of the description and judge for yourself the potential for restoring/rejuvenating to the almost original appearance and function of this cute version of the bygone era’All American Five’ radios. The casing is intact without cracks, missing portions or other blemishes which can be a discouraging restoration issue with an inferior outcome Note that the Flash photos enhance tremendously almost 70 years of dust and dust specs. No moldy/musty damp basement odor. The chassis, the critical and model specific major components on/off switch-volume pot, variable capacitor and front knob tuning mechanism /speaker/IF cans, output transformer etc. The tubes /valves have been checked with a calibrated Eico 667 and found to be strong, without shorts or inter-electrode leakage and good longevity (not immortality). It goes without saying that the electrolytic and paper capacitors must be replaced appropriately and a safe power cord attached. For potential international buyers, nominal voltage 115 V AC 50-60 cycles or theoretically DC! Briefly powered up (with 30 Watts incandescent light bulb for safety) :as expected after almost seven decades, background hum, tuning to strong stations, working volume control! Approximate dimensions: 9″ x 5.5″ x 5.5 (23 x 14 x14 cm). Make sure of its suitability for your specific needs.
