Antique Car Radio Restorations

Pictured to the right is a typical Antique Car Radio.  It has 8 tubes in it.  It also has 20 capacitors (16 paper + 4 electrolytic).   Some car radios have more than this, some less.

These pictures are of a restored radio. 

There are two ways I determine the price of a restoration, and both are based on the number of paper and electrolytic capacitors need to be replaced.

In most cases, after replacing the paper and electrolytic capacitors, and vibrator, a car radio will operate like new or better.

Occasionally, I receive a radio that is in need of more parts, or work to get it working like new or better.

If, for example this car radio, needs capacitors and vibrator,  I will charge 20 x $15 = $300 + $60.00 for a new solid state vibrator, or $360.00*.  I call this “$15 per”.  That is $15.00 per capacitor replaced + other parts.  The $15.00 per capacitor covers the capacitors and all labor on a car radio.  Any additional parts cost extra but labor stays the same.

If it, needs other parts making “$15 per” price exceed $20 per capacitor replaced, (or 20 x $20.00 = $400.00* in this example), this will be the flat-rate price for the restoration.

I call this my White Glove service because it covers almost anything and every thing to get your radio working like now or better.
