Trav-Ler Model 5054


This radio is a Trav-Ler model 5054 from 1948. The radio has never been used except for the testing done to restore it to working condition. The original On/Off switch was faulty and so the radio did not work as shipped from the factory. That part was replaced with a vintage part to fix the problem. All other parts are original and the radio comes with the original box and paperwork. The bakelite case is in perfect shape, as is the plastic dial insert. The only cosmetic flaw is a "smearing" of the dial face/lettering. This is a very small radio using only four tubes: 12SA7, 12SQ7, 50L6, and 35Z5. It uses an external longwire antenna; the original is still attached.
