Northern Electric "Rainbow" 5000 (1947)


Northern Electric "Rainbow" 5000 (1947)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Canadian Northern Electric "Rainbow" in repainted ivory. Affectionately known as the "Baby Champ." This case had too many paint chips to try and fix, so it was stripped and repainted by a professional body shop. I have found it impossible to do a professional job with spray cans. No cracks, chips or hairlines, and definitely no repairs before painting. The brown dial is perfect. The radio is playing fine with no annoying filter hum at all, and is picking up all my local AM stations. The dial light works fine. The original back & knobs are on the radio. This "rainbow" design was a one-of-a-kind classic Canadian radio design. About 10-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 6"D.
