Small Airline amps like this Model 9003 from 1960 and wildly popular these days, and for good reason. 

They're just as cool looking as can be for one thing.  Looks aren't everything, but the cool vibe doesn't hurt!  

The circuit utilizes two 6V6 power tubes, two 12AX7s, a 6AU6 (to drive thee tremolo) and a 6X4 rectifier tube.  The circuit drives and original 1959 Rola 12" speaker.  That's a formula for success!  

Now this isn't a tweed or brown Fender Deluxe, and it is priced accordingly, but it does have great, classic tube tone.  It will overdrive when pushed, and the 12" speaker lifts it above similar vintage amps.  The tremolo is functional and sounds really good.

The original transformers are in place.  The two prong power cable end was replaced some time ago, as was the leather handle.  Everything else appears to be original.
