Philco 676 "Mustang" Portable

Philco 676 "Mustang"  Portable
To all of you University of Texas fans out there, "Hook 'em Horns!" This radio's case is "leather tough" and "leather handsome," as it was made from top grain cowhide and is in excellent condition. The case's reverse side features a very familiar Texas symbol! This model was part of their Rough Rider Series of mid-50s portable radios which were advertised as being "built for hard outdoor life...they won't chip, warp, or break." This Philco series also included the "Sportster," "Knockabout," and "Rancher." Each had a case that snapped open for easy change-over from AC/DC to batteries. Our superheterodyne chassis performs well, as our technician replaced three metalized film capacitors and one AC power plug, replaced an open capacitor, tested tubes, and aligned IF and RF sections. He also cleaned and oiled the leather case. As an added bonus, the purchaser of this radio will receive a 1956 copy of the Philco print advertisement from which today's write-up was composed!  $250.00. (1300053)
