Crosley 148 "Fiver" Cathedral (1932)

Crosley 148 "Fiver" Cathedral (1932)
NEW!Powell Crosley started the Crosley Radio Corporation in Cincinnati Ohio in 1921 making crystal sets. He slowly built his business, buying other radio companies that had various radio patents. An association with Deforest Radio Company gave him access to the RCA patent pool to produce Superheterodyne radios. His high-volume manufacturing technique got him the nickname the "Henry Ford Of Radios." The "Fiver" is a five-tube, AM only radio. An early Superheterodyne, the radio performs well across the dial. Blake went in and replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord and audio cable were installed. The original speaker, knobs and chassis are present. A new reproduction grille cloth was installed. Gary refinished the set and applied a semi-gloss lacquer finish. A great entry-level radio for first-time collectors, and a wonderful set for the Crosley collector. 14"H x 11-1/2"W x 9"D.  $389.00. (1600278)
