Here is a beautiful Sony 7F-74DL which Sony started making in 1967. It is a delightful radio which reeks of quality, with top class materials, styling and performance.

The radio is a very convenient highly portable size, but typical of Sony it packs tremendous performance and distictive design flair into a compact package.

The Sony 7F-74DL was designed to be offered in conjunction with a dedicated Sony car fitting kit RB-7P, allowing the radio to be slotted into place for in car use, and removed for conventional portable use on a picnic or around the home.

This radio comes complete with the very rare car kit all in wonderful original and complete condition.

THIS RADIO & FITTING KIT WOULD BE IDEAL FOR THE OWNER OF A CLASSIC CAR FROM THE LATE '60s & '70s. THIS RADIO IS A PERFECT PERIOD ACCESSORY, AND CAN BE USED PORTABLY AT RALLIES/CONCOURS/MEETS TO ENTERTAIN AND KEEP IN TOUCH.

 

The 7F-74DL is also a very capable radio. It offers good tuning capability accross 4 bands LW/MW/FM from 88 to 108) and even Short Wave.

This example is in great condition, even the dial light is working correctly at the push of a button. I am providing a good range of photos so you can see for yourself the condition, originality and completeness of this radio. It is over 40 years old and is bound to have a few scuffs and marks, but nothing of significant note, albeit with a few innevitable scratches on the distinctive chrome top dial surround.

The radio runs from 3 x C cells (not supplied) or via a 4.5v power supply to run from your mains sockets. At extra cost of £18 I can supply a suitable SONY 4.5v DC power adapter for use anywhere with 220/240v mains supply.

With the car fitting kit installed power is supplied via wiring into the car electrical system.

You can hear the radio playing on youtube and see that it is in excellent working order, with all the controls working smoothly and progressively. Tone is adjusted via a pushbutton.

Rhe radio comes complete with a copy of the relevant comprehensive Sony Service Maual & Parts list.

Here is a rare chance to get a very fine example of this highly desirable 40 plus year old Sony AND the very rare car fitting kit.

This is a good example for a collector, or for any buyer who wants a good portable transistor, combined with the style that only a vintage set can provide, AND for anyone who wants to complete a classic car with a period radio that can be listened to with pleasure even today.

 

 

WHY" BUY IT NOW"

I list on a "BUY IT NOW" basis. I am unconvinced that auctions are a good buying experience.

You are obliged to "watch" something you want to buy for up to 10 days. Then, to stand a chance of winning you often have to set a date to be at your computer to enter a last minute bidding lottery, usually at an inconvenient time.

You end either dissapointed or concerned you have paid too much! Surely life is too short.

If you see something you like, and are happy with the price you should be able to secure it immediately.

No fuss. No problems.

BEWARE EBAY BARGAINS

Many vintage radios on ebay are poorly listed , without care, accuracy or honesty. You dont know exactly what you are buying from out of focus photo(s), and a scant description saying "untested as I dont have a battery". This may mean the bargain buy radio does not work and has iredeemable cosmetic issues. In short it becomes an expensive mistake that will never look or sound "right".

You may find such examples of this radio selling for less in ebay auctions. But with this radio you know exactly what you are going to get. I have provided a range of good clear photos, and a detailed accurate and honest description. The radio will have been cleaned and fully checked before despatch. I offer a full refund if the radio does not match description.

A working vintage radio in great condition offers tremendous value for money. Old radios are collectible, useable, and enjoyable, may well hold or increase in value, and many areavailable at a fraction of the cost of a new DAB radio that will struggle to match the sound quality, and certainly not the style.

This vintage radio is just a lovely thing to have. Buy It Now.

STOP PRESS UK NEWS

ANALOGUE VINTAGE RADIOS REMAIN  USEABLE UNTIL 2019 (& PROBABLY MUCH LATER)

Digital switchover plans for radio are a complete mess. The DAB technology simply is not capturing the public imagination, and the compresed sound of digital is a retrograde step for many. Because digital radio sales are so slow, and hardly any cars currently have DAB radios, the switchover TARGET date HAS BEEN DELAYED TO 2019. Many observers including this one, believe that even the 2019 TARGET will be missed and that vintage analogue radios will continue to be useable and the prefered choice of many listeners well into the 2020s.

About Us:

We are Peter and Judy and we live in the Worcestershire countryside. I am an avid collector and restorer of vintage portable radios, and have a collection of around 300 sets. I tend to be tempted to buy many more than I can possibly keep, and sell on duplicate and surplus sets to make room for more! The time I spend restoring and checking radios for sale is rarely recovered in the sale price. You benefit from my enthusiasm! I always try to provide a good range of clear pictures and a detailed accurate description so you know exactly what you are buying.

You can contact me via the "contact seller" link on the listing. Alternatively feel free to call me on 44(0)7771 736267 (mob)44(0)1386792247 (landline) or email on peterkinnaird@sky.com I am more than happy to answer your questions.
