Philco 46-421

Philco 46-421

This is as close to new that you may ever find a 1946 Philco. It was returned by an unhappy customer for a refund within a few weeks of purchase and left in the box until I bought it about 15 years ago from a retired Philco dealer. Original photofinish on cabinet with slight crazing on lacquer. The chassis has been serviced at some point, tube numbers are written in marker on the chassis and one tube is a Sylvania. All original capacitors. I replaced the broken end on the power cord. It still plays but should be recapped before use. Comes with original box and packing material. 14"W x 8"H x 7"D.  $225.00. (1550032)

 

RCA 40X54 (1939)

RCA 40X54 (1939)

Hard to find RCA treasure chest model from 1939. Cabinet has been refinished with toners and a hand rubbed semi-gloss lacquer. The rope handles, grille cloth and back plate are original but the glass dial lens is a reproduction. The five-tube chassis plays perfectly with new wax/paper capacitors, tested tubes and resistors, alignment and new power cord. I don't believe the painted Bakelite knobs are original to this model.

RCA R71 (1932)

RCA R71 (1932)

Very impressive RCA tombstone from 1932, restored to stunning condition. The eight-tube chassis is AM band only, has all new wax/paper capacitors and a new cloth power cord. All resistors were checked and replaced if necessary, and the set was aligned for peak performance. The original speaker cone has been modified, I assume to increase flexibility for sound improvement. The cabinet was refinished with lacquer toners and a semi-gloss clear then hand rubbed, and the grille cloth was replaced with a close original pattern. This is a very heavy radio to ship.  $550.00. (1550003)
