Truetone D-1001 "Sentry" (1939)


Truetone D-1001 "Sentry" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1909, George Pepperdine (who later founded Pepperdine University) started the Western Auto Supply Company in Kansas City, MO. Eventually the company had several thousand people employed in every major city across the USA. Truetone was the Eastern brand, and Western Air Patrol was the Western brand. He sold the company in 1939, and was later known as Western Auto. The D-1001 is actually a clock radio. The set is a five-tube, AM only radio with an electric clock. Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. The clock works and keeps good time. The radio performs well across the dial. He added a new power cable, an MP3 cable and a new antenna wire. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet and ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. He added a crystal clear dial cover. The radio retains the original knobs, grille cloth and speaker. This unique and beautiful clock radio is ready for your collection! 10"W x 7"H x 5"D.
