Vintage Amico Transistor Radio Unique Dash Dial Design



Great vintage Amico AM/FM Transistor Radio featuring a unique design with a leather and plastic body.  Top marked “Dash Dial” with large tuning dial with rotating lever.  Top of unit looks like it would pop-out, but this extended area is stationary.  Also has turning switch for Off/AM/FM and sliding volume control.  Built in antenna on top and attached handle.  Sides have ear phone plug and mic plugs.  Uses four C batteries or attached plug.  Measures 7″ X 9″ X 4″.

This unit is in good condition considering age.  Only powers up with cord.  Battery box is clean but unit doesn’t seem to function with batteries.  When used with cord, only static can be heard.  Stations do not tune in.  Leather still nice showing some rubs but no major cracks or damage.  Top handle is intact but there is some staining on the leather on the top edge.  Hardware shows oxidation and corrosion.  There is some paint staining on the bottom but all feet are intact.  Unit is dusty inside and out and needs a good cleaning.  Still a unique piece for display or restoration.
