Can anyone ID this radio ?

My guess is '53-'55 - think the knobs are off something else "that fit."

Too new to be a 1953 or 1954.

My guess is 1955. Here is '53 '54 - AC2300

according to my delivery slip from Richard Quinn AC2686 is push button radio for a 1955 Studebaker. Antenna not included

This is very likely a very rare push button '55 Truck Radio because it is not angled to fit the Car dash and the speaker is not included because it is remote, it plugs in with that special 2 prong plug shown.

Rich , I would hope that your right but I think its a 55 car radio . The plug in part has 5 pronges.

There's nothing rare about it. AC-2686 is the deluxe 8 tube radio for the 55 sedan with wraparound windshield.

But this is not the complete radio. It's only the tuner half.

It has the wrong knobs on it and it is missing the amplifier chassis, the lower chassis that holds the speaker and the amplifier, and the side brackets.

This is a common mistake that people make with multi-piece radios. They think the tuner is the whole radio.

When complete, this radio looks like the one in the picture that 62 Champ posted. The main difference is that there is a little bracket between the tuner and the speaker chassis to adjust the angle of the two chassis to each other. That's to make it fit in the new dashboard that came with the wrap around windshield.
