Default Not really vintage, but looks like it from far.

I like vintage looking gear, but I don't like to buy vintage because I don't know ho to restore them. Here is a AM/FM radio I bought online. Looks cool and it's covered in real leather. Sounds pretty good too.

Great looking radio. Does it have anything to do with the Roberts company of reel-to-reel fame?

That Roberts radio is what you want to have in your front seat at a vintage automobile show.

Add in a houndstooth jacket and a derby hat and you are styling.
