Notes The literature is at variance about the model number (for instance 54 or 54G or 54Q), as well as in the name: New Buddy, or Buddy Boy or New Buddy Boy. There are round top and flat top cabinets. But it is not clear which cabinet belongs to which number and name. The sources are divergent. Almost any combination can be found.
Moulded Repwood , Tombstone. Although the schematic does not indicate, Crosley calls it a Neutrodyne in the original ad from 1930 (A Blast from the Past).

In other words: Crosley Buddy Boy has been made in different forms and also for different chassis. Here it is chassis 54 (2 knobs) - please do not confuse with similar chassis 56 (2 knobs) and chassis 58 (3 knobs). The "New Buddy Boy" for chassis 56 has the scale over the right knob (two knobs) - as has chassis 54. The Crosley 56 is the DC version of this AC model 54(G) - which you can find in two versions: "round top" and "flat top".
