Wilcox-Gay A-15AC (1936)


Wilcox-Gay A-15AC (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Wilcox Company started making amateur radio components and kits in 1910 in Charlotte, Michigan. By 1926 they started manufacturing consumer radios. Paul Gay joined the company in 1936 and formed the Wilcox-Gay Corporation. They came out with the Recordio in 1939, and musicians Johnny Cash and Les Paul started recording records on it, just to name a few. The A-15AC is a five-tube, (the ballast tube could be considered the sixth) three-band (SB,SW Police) AC/DC radio. The radio was restored by the previous owner, and we went through the chassis and brought it up to our standard of performance and guarantee. We added a polarized power cord and audio cable. The design of this radio screams Art Deco, also referred to as "Moderne" during the depression. Gary refinished the radio, ending up with a beautiful "piano" finish. The grille is black-painted steel, and the dial is multi-colored and large. The knobs, chassis and dial are original and Gary added a period-correct reproduction grille cloth and a crystal-clear dial cover. Looking for a totally unique radio for your collection? Here it is! 15"H x 12"W x 8"D.
