FADA 1000 "Bullet" (1946)

FADA 1000 "Bullet" (1946)
SALE!  This highly collectable Catalin radio is in excellent condition. They are known as the "bullet" for their Art Deco streamlined design. The colors are good, and there are no cracks, chips or hairline fractures. I haven't seen this particular color combo, the completely red face and knobs with a butterscotch body. The knobs appear to be from a pre-War version, which are a more desirable knob, but not correct to this year. FADA first manufactured Catalins in 1940. Initially with an AM only, five-tube chassis, they later produced a model that had a shortwave band and six tubes. Being made from a phenolic resin plastic allowed them to be available in an array of colors, quite a change from the brown and black Bakelite radios that came before them. This model 1000 design was carried over to post-War, offering AM only, and a fantastic choice of color combinations. Blake went through this radio, replacing capacitors, checking and replacing resistors and tubes as needed. He then aligned the radio, and it performs well. The cabinet has great color and has not been touched. 10-1/2"W x 7"H x 6"D.  Was $1,299.00, now $899.00.
