Default Bush Radiogram for Sale

Hi,
We are new to the forum, what a fantastic resource! We are looking forward to getting involved with the discussions.

At the moment I have a Bush Radiogram model RG11A which was bought at auction for use on a film set and is now surplus to our requirements. Would anyone be interested in purchasing it at all?

Garrard autochange record deck: 33, 45, and 78 RPM.
Bush 3 band radio: Long, Medium and Short wave.
The Platten spins at 78 RPM although the drive belt for 33 & 45 RPM is perished and needs replacing.
Valves light up as far as I can tell, as does the radio display although the visual slider for the wavelength is seized.
No sound, this was working up to 6 months ago, and it hasn't been moved, so I guess its just a valve that has gone.

We are looking at re-couping our money and are looking to get 75 for it.
We are in Leeds so the buyer would need to collect or we perhaps could arrange local delivery.

Many thanks.

It seems to be in nice cosmetic condition, but see this thread: https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...ad.php?t=26411

This particular Bush model is too old to be bought by the 'retro vinyl' market, so you're really looking for a specialist collector interested in radiograms from the late 40s / early 50s. Unfortunately for you, such collectors are thin on the ground, and tend to have more than enough of the things already.

I think it may end up being 'upcycled', particularly in view of the nice cabinet.

Just to further depress you, the problem is unlikely to be a valve, which are generally long lived. Some components deteriorate with age, particularly capacitors, and are replaced in a restoration. It's quite a bit of work, but a collector would expect to have to do this. Not a good idea to power it up unless this has been done, as other parts can be damaged subsequently that can be expensive to replace.
I did sell one on ebay, and it was collected, but would suggest a low starting price.
