Sonora RQU222 (1946)


Sonora RQU222 (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This is a gorgeous Bakelite post war relic that shows the "streamlined" motif of the late thirties and early forties. This particular model even has a curved "waterfall" style dial glass (yes, glass not plastic). Remember that anything manufactured in 1946 was actually designed at or before 1941. Everything went on hold for the war. I am not sure if they ever sold this model unpainted or not but when I stripped the old paint off, it revealed a beautiful pristine natural black/brown marble pattern that is just too nice to cover up, so I polished it up and here it is. The radio has been completely restored, all new capacitors; the tubes and resistors replaced where needed and aligned for best performance. Above all, my guarantee applies. It plays loud and clear and picks up several stations with the internal antenna. The last shot is a close up showing the detail of the finish. Minor flaws: The back has the very top part broken off but the antenna is intact. There was a very small chip (about 3/8") on the very bottom of the right "foot." It has been repaired with brown epoxy. There was never a crack.
