Will I be able to sell this thing?

Several month ago, I bought a KLH Model 21 FM radio on Craigslist for something like $60 or $80. It worked fine but was in terrible cosmetic condition. So I restored it, and now am ready to sell it. I already have one of these, on the top of my fridge, so I don't need another K:H Model 21 FM radio. I just can't resist a good deal. How much do you think I should sell it for? Do you ever listen to music on the radio? This is thing is from 1968 or so, and sounds better than most modern radios.

@JudyEv I could put it on eBay, but I grew tired of shipping stuff a few years ago.

I would have no idea what to sell it for. I don't listen to the radio these days. I listen to Pandora or my playlist from Apple Music when I'm in the car or when I'm at home through my Amazon Echo (Alexa).

Is the sound pretty good? I can listen for hours to old radios.

@TheHorse I don't have any complaints but I'm also not blasting it at any very loud volume.

@NJChicaa KLH Model 21s are best at moderate volume in the background. They're not "boom boxes."

If it were one of those magical radios that only played music from 1968 and before I’d buy it in a heartbeat. I don’t have a clue. Do you have any antique assessors near you? We have a place here that appraises things. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

I'll probably be able to sell it for $140 or so.

Heh, I'd say music before 1973. I want to be able to listen to early Warner Brothers Gordon Lightfoot and early John Prine.

@TheHorse — oh, ditto, and the Eagles’ Desperado (my favorite album of theirs) came out in ‘73.

Yes I listen to the radio! That is how I get my music,its free. I can tell you the 8 best stations in my area for pop and rock. I have no idea how much to sell the vintage radio.

It'll go for maybe $150. I listen mostly to jazz and classical these days.

@TheHorse Jazz and Classical are mood music for me

@andriaperry They can be for me as well. I've played music so long that rock, bluegrass and folk start to sound "all the same" to me after awhile.

I did a quick look at eBay and they seem to be going for about $80 to $150. I'd try for $150.

Yeppers. One that works and as been restored should go for about $150. They're cool little radios

@xander6464 I agree. My hunch is that they sound better than more recent gear because they used discrete transistors (or tubes) rather than ICs.

I don't have any ideas. You can try to check the shop online site such as Amazon, eBay, etc.

@TheHorse I hope it would be sold more than that amount.

Looks good and sounds good and if it is vintage perhaps you can get somewhere around $150

@moonandstars Do people still use them where you live? They're becoming more rare here.

I have no idea about the value, but if you have a good conversation, you can sell it.

@WiseGhots Maybe I'll list it on Craigslist this evening. I just got a call about my AR-2axs. I'm still trying to "thin the herd."

I listen to the radio time by time and we have one old big radio, that I think is from the late 50's. I have no idea how much people are ready to pay for this. It seems that the young generations do not care for those vintage objects.

Actually, there is a resurgence of interest in vinyl (records) among the young. I hope it extends to vintage gear to play those records.

@TheHorse The young people finally have noticed that the vinyl records are a lot better than CDs and other electronic stuff to play music. When I said this 25 years ago people laughed at me.

Looks like the average eBay price (for units in condition not as good as yours) is around $80, a few better ones are running around $125
