Western Air Patrol 377 (1935)
Western Air Patrol 377 (1935)
Western Air Patrol radios were sold on the West Coast through Western Auto Supply stores. They were made at the Gilfillan factory in Los Angeles. For the most part, schematics are found through Gilfillan documentation, so lots of research has to be done when attempting to restore one. This radio uses the same chassis as the Gilfillan 7T8. This particular model is the only one I've seen with this unique cabinet, which is original and quite beautiful. The WAP model 377 is a seven-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. He checked the tubes and resistors and replaced where necessary. He added a new power cord, audio cable and aligned the radio for top performance. The radio has great sensitivity across the dial and plenty of volume with a good tone control. The cabinet is original, we just cleaned it up a bit. The Birds Eye Maple across the front and side is very unique and a beautiful contrast to the light Maple cabinet veneer. The knobs, speaker and dial scale are original. I installed a new period-correct grille cloth. This is basically a one-of-a-kind radio. A very unique "West Coast" radio! 17"W x 10"H x 9"D.  $599.00.
