I picked this 1956 Montgomery Wards Airline radio today at the antique store.  The fix was quick given it only had two electrolytic capacitors to replace.   It’s a pretty simplistic, 5 tube design.   I cleaned all the contacts and took the crud off of the tubes.   It works just fine.    People are asking a lot more for the more interesting ones nowadays, so I’m not sure how many more I’ll be able to justify fixing up.
