Re: Kraft Radio for collectors

Probably around $399 or so 'then' dollars, I'd guess!
Is it the mustard coloured ali metal case or is it the slightly later plastic case one which was made in Japan?
As a guide I bought two similar models in excellent condition at the London Swap-shop for $40 a couple of years ago. I'm not a collector.
'johnboy' in New Zealand could be interested. He has a most impressive collection of old radios, mainly Kraft.
Someone advertises in MAAC Mag too.

It's the 2 stick version. I think I paid around $300 for it used around 1979.

If I recall back in those days radios were about $100 /channel- at least for a 4 channel.

This radio is 2 stick , 1 retract switch, 2 sliders ( similar to the trims) and a buddy box switch. It has frequency modules which can be changed out. Of course its wide band AM on the old frequency ( 72.240 MHz modules are installed at present. I never did get it narrow banded but this can still be done though probably uneconomical. So it's something a collector may be interested in.
