Firestone Air Chief S-7426-1 "World's Fair" (1939)


Firestone Air Chief S-7426-1 "World's Fair" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This Firestone was known as the 1939 NY World's Fair model. If you Google S-7426-1 model number, you will see that an identical model has been on display in the National Air & Space Museum at one time. The Firestone radios marked with Air Chief brands were manufactured by Detrola, Wells Gardner or Stewart Warner. This bullet shaped design was one of their most fabulous sets. It's in mint condition, no damage or cosmetic issues, everything is original and where it is supposed to be. There is a perfect Retro-Tronics back on the case. According to John Pelham's Radiophile site, this Firestone is a four-tube superheterodyne not including the ballast tube. It has a winged man motif above the volume knob. John also says that to him, the winged man motif design symbolizes mid-20th century optimism and the confidence that through science and technology, man could solve all the world's problems. We wish! The chassis has been gone over by a professional, everything that needed changing was done, and the radio plays clearly with an extended length of wire for the antenna (included). About 13"W x 6-3/4"H x 7"D.
