FADA 43 Cathedral (1930)

FADA 43 Cathedral (1930)

You are looking at a very early and extremely scarce early cathedral radio. The five-tube chassis plays on Broadcast only on an earlier type of circuit call a "TRF." I had my cabinet pro do the refinish and he discovered the inky super dark finish was covering Rosewood. At that point, I gave him artistic license to highlight the stunning wood. He choose a super high gloss lacquer hand rub finish to accentuate the gorgeous wood. Please excuse the photos as with the finish being so glossy, there is a bit of reflection and bounce from the flash. There is a bit of uneven areas due to the usual shrinkage of the wood, which is now 88 years old. Les has completed his professional level repairs and the radio plays very well for the more primitive type of circuit. He also added the mini-jack connector allowing you addition of an input device or Bluetooth for only $25 additional. This is a rare and beautiful radio and highly collectible! 18"H x 15-7/8"W x 10-1/2"D. $1,499.00. (0961467)

Truetone D-727 (1938)

Truetone D-727 (1938)

This is the finest all original examples I have seen of this highly sought model. The oversized and multicolored dial with all of the stations around the edge make it a collector's delight. The effect in a darkened room is terrific. This model sports a motorized drive with presets allowing you to zoom from station to station. The radio retains a nice and original finish. Sure there is a bit of wear associated with the eighty plus years of service and use. The set retains the factory instructions with the setting of the motorized drive presets. If I had the set refinished, these would have been lost: a cost benefit decision which I made. My technician has completed his professional repairs, including disassembly and rebuilding the motor drive for optimal performance. Even the chassis is squeaky clean! The green tuning eye is super sensitive and winks from station to station. This model features a full range tone control and a very large 8-inch speaker. The radio also sports a mini-jack to allow your input device and enjoy an unlimited choice of content from this spectacular radio. Bluetooth is available for an additional $25.00! 21-1/2"W x 12-1/2"H x 10"D. $995.00. (0961676)

 

Western Air Patrol 136T (1935)

Western Air Patrol 136T (1935)

Here is a highly unusual and scarce mantle style radio. The radio was made by Gamble-Skogmo in Los Angeles for Western Auto Stores. In the 1930's, often radios were offered for sale to customers while they waited for repairs to be made to their automobiles. Rather a captured audience and rather common done by others like General Motors. This radio is a sophisticated six-tube super-het offering four bands and a superior level of electronics. Of course most bands today are vacant, but as a broadcast receiver, it is a fine player. The cabinet is in remarkable condition for the 82+ years of service. Note the fine detailing of veneer work with book matched areas on the top. The radio has been completely serviced by my tech to perform as new. With his repairs, a mini-jack has been installed allowing your connection of any modern device. You now can choose whatever you wish to listen to using your vintage radio. Add a Bluetooth receiver add-on for only $25! 14-1/2"W x 9-1/4"H x 8"D. $499.00. (0961450)

 

Wilcox-Gay A-33 (1937)

Wilcox-Gay A-33 (1937)

Here is an interesting radio! Wilcox-Gay was a factory based in Charlotte, Michigan and made some very high quality and unusually styled radios. The radio sports what became the rage in the 1937-8 period with a rotary telephone type of dial selector which allows you to preset and "dial" your favorite station. The radio is a six tube model offering both am and shortwave abilities. The cabinet is in original condition with a modest amount of wear but acceptable for an 82 year old. I believe the speaker cloth has been replaced and the knobs as well. Overall it is a desirable radio to own. My tech has completed his highly professional repairs and the set is a fine performer. His work included adding a mini-jack to allow your connection of any modern device, and Bluetooth is available for only $25 additional. 17"W x 10"H x 7"D. $695.00. (0961626)

 

Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1935)

NEW!

Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1935)

Here is one of the most popular Zenith tombstones. The radio is a five-tube super-het that plays on both AM and Shortwave. The dial lights up in a dramatic manner which changes color as you flip between the bands. The radio before you is a fine example, with a nicely refinished cabinet in nearly nice condition. The speaker cloth is replacement, period correct and in nice condition. The radio retains the iconic "Z" wood knobs which are Zenith originals. The radio plays like a new set, as my tech has done a terrific job in making his repairs. I noted the fine selectivity of the tuner section, and how many stations the radio received with clarity. He also added a mini-jack for your external input device offering you an unlimited amount of content of your choice. Bluetooth is available for $25! 17-1/4"H x 13-3/4"W x 9"D. $795.00. (0961697)

 

Zenith 908 Tombstone (1935)

NEW!

Zenith 908 Tombstone (1935)

The radio is a professionally refinished cabinet with a great replication of the original toning and finish. Note the reproduction speaker cloth and specific wood knobs are the same that the radio had leaving the factory. Contained within is a six-tube super-het chassis that plays on both am and shortwave. The radio sports a "port hole" type of back lit dial, which was the rage in the middle 1930's. My technician has completed his professional repairs returning the radio to a "like new" factory condition. The radio is a dramatic player and should offer the kind of superior performance Zenith was well known for. The tech added a mini-jack to the electronics to allow your connection to any modern type of device. This will allow you an unlimited choice of content which will allow you to use this with your iPhone, smart phone, iPods, or record player. This is a terrific and rarely seen radio. The set is unusual. Bluetooth is available for only $25.00 additional! 18-1/2"H x 14-1/4"W x 10"D. $1,295.00. (0961696)
