      My guess is a newer one that is all transistor like in my 62 Champ would be worth more than the older type with tubes & vibrator. How much more is anyone's guess as Jim said.

        It depends on whether one is buying or selling. If buying, they are expensive and if selling, they are worthless.

        Are you buying or selling? Do you know the year? They will all interchange (58 - 62), but have different colored faces and buttons for certain different years.

          I bought a couple (62 push button, and 63-66 push button) a couple years ago for around $25.00. I bought the manual radio that has been in my 62 Lark for 20 or 30 dollars from a local salvage yard back in the 1990s. I also picked up a 64 vintage manual unit at the Cedar Rapids international meet for $10.00 condition unknown.

          So, what is your's worth?

            $35.00 is my guesstimate.
