Detrola 200 (1938)
Detrola 200 (1938)
NEW!Detrola was started in 1930 in Detroit, MI by Jack Ross. Over the period of 17 years, he built the company into the 6th largest radio manufacturer in the world. Most of the radios didn't even carry the Detrola name...in fact one assembly line was dedicated to Truetone. At one point they were making sets for over 100 brands. The model 200 is a very rare set. I could find nothing on the internet after looking for over an hour, but I did find a model 254 that had the same chassis and was built for Monarch. It's a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, audio cable, antenna lead and safety fuse were installed. Gary did a fantastic job on this rare Detrola. This walnut set with matched Madrone veneer on top has a red vinyl strip inlay, telling us it's an Ingraham cabinet. The radio retains the original knobs, grille cloth, dial scale and chassis. A new crystal clear dial cover by Mark Palmquist completes this cabinet. This is the only documented model 200 out there. Make it yours! 14-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 7"D.  $499.00. (1600297)
