Hi Everyone, I recieved a Baby Ruby as a gift and I'm thinking of getting it restored. The first step was to get it to a shop for chassis restoration and then tackle the case, dial face and grill cloth. The case itself is sound with just some loss of finish. I've only seen a couple of photos on line and they have both dark and light finishes as well as dial faces that are light and dark. Mine looks to have the correct knobs. I have a Climax Q-69 which looks to be the same chassis and will be refinished at some point too. My question is because I not seen any sold radios that have any prices so I was hoping you guys could help with values. Thanks much.

Inquiring about the value of your gift... :shock:

Funny Greg! Don't be a Scrooge. I think she is as curious about the restored value as I am. I did not ask what she paid as its the thought that counts right? I came to the experts to help with the value of a restored Baby Ruby so I can establish my budget for restoration. This might mean do some myself or pay someone else. Thanks again

This Q-69 sold for $500.00 back in 2015

Edit: four-figures was suggested here when you asked previously about different models.
