Sparton 57 (1935)

Sparton 57 (1935)
NEW!The brand name Sparton was a product of Sparks-Withington of Jackson, Michigan. We might note that the Michigan State Spartan football team bears the same name, with a different spelling, and a different town too. Hmmm? Anyway, in 1934/35, Sparks-Withington produced 3.8 million radios making it one of the larger producers of radios and tubes in the USA. The model 57 was an AC-DC, superheterodyne set with five tubes and two bands (SB,SW). The radio has an AVC circuit and great sensitivity on both bands. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked and replaced all resistors and tubes. A safety fuse was added as well as a new power cord, replacing the fire hazard "curtain burner" resistance line cord. The radio was aligned and plays loud and strong. Gary refinished the cabinet with his usual finesse. He completed by applying lacquer and hand-rubbing a gorgeous "piano" finish. This radio is an early, rare Sparton that belongs in your collection! 9-1/2"W x 7-3/4"H x 4-1/2"D.  $429.00. (1600195)
