Western Air Patrol 76 (1935)


Western Air Patrol 76 (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Western Auto Supply of California started selling radios under the Western Air Patrol brand in 1925. The radios were manufactured by Gilfillan in Los Angeles under Gilfillan's RCA patent. By the late 1930's, Western Auto Supply had 150 stores west of the Rockies, and in 1939 were sold to Gambles. There were no Western Air Patrol radios sold after 1939. The model 76 is a seven-tube, three-band (SB,SW,Police) and was the top-of-the-line table set for WAP in 1935. Blake replaced all of the capacitors and checked all of the resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. He installed a new power cord, audio cable, two new antenna leads (AM and SW) and a safety fuse. The radio plays with lots of sensitivity across the dial. There is plenty of volume with very good fidelity. Gary did a masterful job stripping heavy enamel paint, doing veneer repairs, and finished with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The knobs, dial scale and 8-inch Jensen speaker are original to the radio. These radios are very rare. They are quite large measuring almost two feet in width and 12" high. This beautiful, unique radio can be yours! 23-1/2"W x 11-1/2"H x 11-1/2"D.
