Crosley 517 "Fiver Deluxe" (1937)
Crosley 517 "Fiver Deluxe" (1937)
NEW!In 1924, the Crosley Corporation opened a plant that could produce 5000 radios a day, including the cabinets. Due to the assembly line manufacturing they were called "The Henry Ford of Radio." The Model 517 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. Close to a dozen Crosley models used the chassis or the name "Fiver." The outstanding feature is the glass "reflective dial." We replaced all of the capacitors. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, audio cable, antenna lead and safety fuse were added. The radio plays with plenty of volume with good sensitivity across the dial. Gary stripped the walnut veneer and refinished the radio with high quality toners and lacquer. The end product is beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are present, along with a period-correct replacement grille cloth. A note: There is a gold mirror behind the dial scale that is printed on the dial glass that creates a reflection when photographed. This is a perfect example one a "Fiver" tombstone. Make it yours! 12-1/2"H x 11"W x 7-1/2"D.  $425.00. (1600316)
