Arvin 618-A "Phantom Maid" (1938)


Arvin 618-A "Phantom Maid" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Noblitt-Sparks Industries started in 1921 in Indianapolis and in 1931 moved to Columbus, Indiana. They manufactured radios under the Arvin name, as well as automobile equipment, kitchen appliances, cookware and televisions. This large radio compares to the Crosley "Super 8" and the Zenith 5-S-119 in size and performance. The 618A is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. This radio has tons of volume utilizing an 8-inch speaker. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. We installed a new power cord, safety fuse and an audio cable for your external listening device. The new tuning eye tube is bright and active. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet, and refinished it using high-quality fillers and toners. He applied several coats of lacquer, then hand-rubbed the cabinet for that "factory fresh" lacquer finish. The radio sports a beautiful maple inlay across the front and top of the set. We were able to find the correct knobs as a few were missing. The chassis and speaker are original, and we added a new, period-correct repro grille cloth. A gorgeous and unique Arvin "Phantom" series radio for you collection! 19"W x 10"H x 9"D.
