Philco 42-KR5


Philco 42-KR5

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Manufactured specially for the mid-century kitchen, it was designed to sit on top of the then fashionable rounded refrigerators, not the least of which would be those made by Philco. You can see how the curved bottom of the clock radio was cut to the contour of the fridge's top. Philco also made a smaller radio-only version; the clock radio is harder to find, especially in this good of condition. This has been restored inside and out. All caps were changed on the radio, all tubes tested and replaced as necessary, some wiring replaced, a new speaker installed and new safety cord put in. The radio has had a full alignment and plays with good sound and sensitive tuning/channel selection. The clock was cleaned and lubricated. The wood case is sound with no damage and was redone with a close-to-original Navajo white. The dial and radio faces are very attractive and in great shape and the original label is still on the bottom. The knobs are original and a homemade back cover has been made using an outline from an authentic back that will be furnished to keep the dust out.
