This kind of pricing doesn't come up very often. There is a slant back radio, 1947 to 1950 GMC/Chev radio for sale on Ebay. It is unrestored and missing the back cover but it is being offered at a price of 155.00.

Is it still listed?
I looked and only saw one for $1,774.49 for sale... ummm What?

Guessing "fat fingers" it was listed last week for $174.00 and did not sell...

Yes it is. I do a search for 1947 Chevrolet radio. The description also has OEM in it.

That is it. The knobs are incorrect I believe.

Contact Mongo on this site. I bought a radio from him years ago and it looks like the original but is 12 volt and has AM and pug in adapters for playing music.

Perhaps that price is not the great deal y’all think it is
Because of what’s missing this radio is only good for parts
The back cover is gone
The special curved mounting bits behind the knobs are gone
The inside is quite rusted, no zinc remains on the back chassis
It has the wrong screw heads in many locations so you know it’s been opened and worked on before
And someone drilled a hole in the front on the right side what’s that all about

It will cost you a whole other radio to fill in the missing parts
I think it’s a fair price for someone who has many and needs a few extra bits
But if you are trying to rebuild one first time spending a bit more on a more complete unit that is less molested is perhaps worth it

Now by all means I’m gonna love answering questions all day for anyone who what’s to take it on
I enjoy rebuilding these radios

If I needed one for my truck, the missing back would not stop me from using it. My first truck radio was the same model and it didn't have a back. I made my own from another radio case. It was a bit crude but worked out. Only the front bezel etc. is visible when installed.

Yeah if ya don’t care that’s fine
And I hope people are interested in fixing this stuff still
It’s not a common hobby for sure
Me and few others for sure have parts to borrow to model fabricating replacement bits
With 3D printing tech evolving so fast maybe soon someone will make a model of the whole case and bits and then we can all just share files to print anything missing
No more barriers at all

Truckernix is onto something tho, the radio is not a sealed cavity so the back volume is not a factor in the performance
No back is the same sound for all intents and purposes
Makes changing tubes easier too
