I am restoring 9 six-button S4627s and one four-button S4824. I'll need to sacrifice one for parts to restore the others. The question is which radio is more desirable? I know most folks like the six-button because it is a more "deluxe" model but the four-button seems to be more rare.

Rare doesn't always mean desirable.. I think most would prefer to have the higher end model.

Did the radio I sent your way make it there in one piece?

Won't be able to drag them out until next week, but I have some of the guts from a 6-button radio and you are welcome to them.

use parts. The parts most needed because they either lost or rusted beyond repair are knobs and the tuning mechanism assembly.
