FADA LA-60 "Fadascope" (1939)


FADA LA-60 "Fadascope" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The FADA Radio and Electric Company was formed around 1933 in Long Island, New York by Frank D'Andrea. There is some confusion because at about the same time, the Andrea Radio Corporation existed as well, and that FADA was purchased by Jacob Marks and later went bankrupt. It appears that D'Andrea renamed his company FADA at that time. I may write more on this later as we have an Andrea radio ready to sell as well. The LA60 is a five-tube, AM only radio. I could only find this model with either a brown or ivory Bakelite cabinet. Here we have a beautiful Ingrahan-built Walnut and Mahogany set. We replaced all of the capacitors. Checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. A new power cord and safety fuse were added. This radio will not support an external audio cable. Gary stripped the cabinet and ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original chassis, speaker, knobs and back with the internal "loop" antenna are with the radio. A new crystal clear dial cover by Mark Palmquist was installed. This is a one-of-a-kind radio and is complete and ready to play. The price is right on this beautiful unique set. Make it yours! 14"W x 9"H x 8"D.
