Philco 45C "Butterfly" (1934)

Philco 45C "Butterfly" (1934)
SALE!  In 1906, Philco started out as the Philadelphia Storage Battery Company making batteries for cars and trucks. The Philco name didn't appear until 1919, and they didn't produce their first radio until 1928. After aggressive advertising and product development, Philco became the third largest company selling 400,000 radios by 1929. The 45C is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. There were two "Butterfly" radios, the other is the 28C, and two console models utilizing the same chassis. The capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse and power cord were added, and we installed a cable for iPad, Bluetooth etc. The radio performs well with good sensitivity across the dial. Gary completely refinished the radio, which was a daunting task. Several areas had to be masked off and done very carefully. The black on the sides and top was very difficult and required hand-finishing to get that great luster. The knobs, grille cloth, speaker and the all-important back are all original. This is a perfect Butterfly, and it won't be around for long! 19"W x 9-1/2"H x 8"D.  Was $995.00, now $895.00.
