Western Air Patrol 66 (1938)


Western Air Patrol 66 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
George Pepperdine started Western Auto Supply of California in 1925 in Los Angeles. His radios were initially made by Gilfillan, and later Patterson, and were sold under the brand Western Air Patrol. In 1939, he sold Western Auto Supply to Gambles, ending the Western Air Patrol brand. The model 66 is a seven-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input and antenna lead were installed. The radio has good sensitivity across the stationized dial, and is a very good performer. An interesting and unique feature is a rear-facing speaker. Gary completely stripped the old finish off the radio, and ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, speaker, chassis, back and grille cloth. A new dial cover from Mark Palmquist was added. This rare Western Air Patrol radio is absolutely gorgeous, a unique addition to anyone's collection! 15-1/2"W x 10"H x 9"D.
