Wonderful Motorola 68X 11Q tube radio vintage 1949. I believe this is the 68X11Q although number on back cover is not totally clear (see photo) This model is constructed of two tone polystyrene plastic and the ook of this radio is absolutely unique. Playing on AM broadcast band and was able to pickup many stations (although this radio was susceptible to interference from our plasma TV and fluorescent lights). When first turned on radio has normal tube radio warm up time and starts off with gravely sound, but radio sound quality improves as tubes continue to warm. I have played this radio for over 4 hours and found the sound quality of local stations very good. No chips in case. The are a couple hairline surface cracks in top but they do NOT go through to interior of cabinet. Some otherminor marks ... see photos to understand how good this radio looks. Cleaned inside and out. .Dial string broke and has been patched. Very nice model for further restoration or enjoy / display as is.
