Norco 160 (1935)
Norco 160 (1935)
Norco (Northwestern Radio Manufacturing Company) was founded in 1921 in Portland, Oregon by Charles Austin. He initially produced early TRF radios, but is famous for creating Oregon's first broadcast radio station (7XF). Later in 1930, he created Oregon's first short wave Police Radio station. He was also selling super-het radios made by Remler and Mission Bell with the Norco name on them. The Norco 160 is five-tube, three-band (AM,SW,Police) radio. The capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents. The tubes and resistors have been checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, new power cord and external audio cable were installed. The walnut cabinet was completely stripped, grain-filled and painted. The set was finished with a hard lacquer "piano" finish, then hand-polished. The radio has the original badging, knobs, speaker, chassis, and a reproduction grille cloth. This is only the second Norco radio offered on the Radio Attic. I know we all use the word "rare" frequently, but in this case it truly applies! 17"H x 16"W x 10"D.  $599.00. (1600367)
