Detrola 139 (1937)


Detrola 139 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Detrola was founded by John J. Ross in 1931, and by 1936 boasted being the sixth largest radio manufacturer in America. They made radios for close to 100 other companies, and during its 17 years in business possibly produced 400 models. The company ceased operation in 1948. The model numbers were chronological, so the this model was an early set. The model 139 is a five-tube, three-band (SB,SW, Police) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. He checked the tubes and resistors, replacing where needed. The radio has great sensitivity across the large, stationized dial. A new power cord, antenna lead and audio cable were installed. Gary stripped and refinished the Walnut and Maple cabinet. A Mahogany strip goes across the top and down the front. He ended up with a nice "piano" lacquer finish. A new Mark Palmquist dial cover was installed, and the original knobs, speaker (re-coned) and chassis are present. This is a gorgeous "large dial" Detrola and it's ready for your collection! 15"W x 11"H x 8"D.
