    I guess it's pointless to ask since you only show up once a Month to make one for sale post, and do not answer your PM's, but is it a Push Button or Push Button with Wonder Bar?

      Me too. I've posted questions and sent PMs without any responses. No problem, I just gave up. Upside is it saved me a chunk of money I shouldn't be spending on goodies...

        I haven't and won't reply because there is no asking price in the ad.

          Even if the radios are new in the box and have never been installed, they will still need most of the capacitors replaced and probably a few resistors to boot as time takes its toll on those parts whether they have been used or not. Bud

            Since I am a possible buyer, I emailed the guy. He wants $350 each for them.

              Studerich and Bob you two are 100% correct. The same has happened to me.

                Matthew, don't expect plug and play. As Bud indicated, capacitors that haven't been exercised aren't capacitors anymore.

                  No worries Brad, that's more than I can spend right now anyways. Besides, I don't even have my Packard paid for yet.

                    That's interesting, MB. He returned my email quickly with some requested pictures. They are indeed brand new push button-type radios and in perfect, clean shape. One set comes with two new speakers. Both have chrome push buttons, not white or black. For some reason the price went up $125 each since your quote last night, however. If you have a Packard and want to probably pay for new caps, etc., to get them working, these are beautiful radios.
