Hallicrafters S-53A, Desktop HF/VHF Receiver

Hybrid array of tubes,GT style and 7 pin miniature ,in good shape,under the chassis. Must have been kept clean and in a temperature controlled environment!. Very little had to be done, caps looked good for old wax type. Recapped w/ polystyrene capacitors/630volt /also new 450 Vdc. Electrolytic's. Good performance for 60. + year old radio
