I've been trying to make some sense of that calamitous collection of crap that fills my garage. Some of it will end up on ebay, some in the trash. I've come across two 40s-early 50s Stude radios that are apart. I HATE to dispose of them and I'd like to get them TO someone who could make use of them. One is a six-button model S-5127, the other is an S-6427. I CAN send them via Greyhound, which would be the most economical OR UPS if you want them delivered to your door. With the bus company you have to pick up at the nearest bus station.

The push-buutons alone are worth the price of shipping or more. What the rest of them is worth depends on what it's worth to you. You pay shipping and they're yours!

Hey Biggs,

For those of us without parts books that far back, what do they fit? I'm interested in the '40's radio. Pre-War or Post-War.

The 6427 is the radio that was used on both sides of WWII. It has 7 buttons protruding out the front besides the two usual knobs. The center pushbutton is used to tune the 6 pushbuttons. It was used in cars and trucks. I am not sure what it's AC # was but Studebaker called it the 8-Tube Skyway Radio. It was used, I think, as early as 1940. I know it was an accessory item in M-series trucks and I've also rescued one or two from 48-49 Commanders.:D
