    Default What's an original Hitachi radio worth?

    Can anyone give me an idea of what an original Hitachi radio is worth, I know it's really worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it and how much they want it but any feedback would be helpful, also how hard are they to get hold of?
    I have a chance of getting one which is one of the few non original parts I need for my car.


    Regards

    Saw one recently on Ebay for $ 250US, so they are not that cheap....

    There are not many of them in working condition for the first reason, and a lot of them got thrown into a box or into a dumpster when a previous owner decided to put an aftermarket radio in.

    So, to answer your question, yes, they are becoming scarce and finding a very good, working example if you want to do a proper original restoration is not going to be easy. You might end up paying a good sized sum for a perfect original radio, it all depends on who is selling, and if you are bidding on it on Ebay or the like.

    I have a buddy in Melbourne who has restored several cars over the decades. He mentioned a shop to me that he knows of which specializes in period car accessories...he mentioned it because I asked him exactly the same question. If you like, I'll find out the details of the shop...

    I paid AUS$100 for mine two years ago from Lindsay Drife at Z Spares in Melbourne.

    When I got it turned out the knobs were not correct.

    Anyone got a set to spare?
