Just a quick mention about an original Sapphire V radio for sale, listed by a past oil bath air cleaner customer of 1967beetle.com. If you know about this radio, you know how hard it is to find it complete and in good working order!
“Guaranteed working radio, right off the bench. All functions, knobs and push-buttons working as they should. AM Band is tuned per manual and is pulling in stations very well with a standard antenna. Lamp illuminates and dims with dimmer. Overall very good condition. Original rubber knobs from 1967. Excellent chrome bezel and blacking. Minor pitting on original chromed buttons and banner plate. Radio is the mid to late model year with the larger power transistor (shown in R side view).”
One thing is for sure, this Sapphire V Radio will go fast!
