I used to own a VHF64 and it was one of the best receiver's I have ever heard.
I had carefully restored it and sold it some years back on ebay as I needed the funds. It went for just over a £100.
I found it very sensitive on all bands after the usual caps had been replaced and a full re-alignment performed.
The electrostatic tweeter can be repaired as I remember there is a foam backing inside that rots and if replaced, will gently push the plates back together and it should work fine again.
Powerful bass and bags of top end... it was wonderful on VHF
I used 3.2mm wide gold tape, I believe it was Letraset "Letraline" to replace the gold inlay on the edge of the cabinet. It is very thin and looks identical to the original finish.
Once I had re-dyed the cabinet, several coats of Liberon finishing oil ensured a nice glossy finish and secured the gold tape nicely.
Wish I still had the set
