Hi Stephen, I did not get the e-mail and have not yet heard from Trevor.
Can you help?

I expect Trevor will be along shortly - he was having trouble with forum login so I posted his pictures - but I'll send you his email

Trevor Jones has an HMV radio going spare which may be slightly later as it has new-fangled transistors (see attachment), but otherwise looks quite similar. Apparently needs a new speaker though

Hi

I just realized we ought to have some information about radios in the 'Tech Tips' section, so I've added a new article based on what I know, which others can contribute to. My Magnette has the Smiths/HMV 200X valve radio which seems to have been the standard fitment, and these do come up on ebay from time to time - also worth checking Vintage Car Radio and other restorers

I would like to fit a radio in my recently acquired Magnette but want it to be the correct one for the car if possible. I understand that an HMV set was offered as an extra when new.
It probably doesn't matter if it works or not as I understand that I could get it repaired and up dated.
It would be useful just to see a picture of the correct unit so that at least I would know what to look for.
