Truetone D-723 "Truetone Tulip" (1937)
Truetone D-723 "Truetone Tulip" (1937)
Truetone radios were manufactured by Detrola and were sold in Western Auto Stores. Several Detrola models crossed over to Truetone, Silvertone and Aria brands, just to name a few. The most valuable model was the "Egyptian" which were Detrola radios with a model for Truetone and a model for Silvertone. The radios were basically the same with small cabinet and dial differences. The D-723 is a seven-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) set. The radio has Push-Pull output utilizing two 42 output tubes through an 8-inch speaker. We replaced all of the capacitors. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input and antenna lead were added. A precision alignment was performed, and the radio has a lot of volume and great sensitivity across the dial. Gary stripped off the old finish, then refinished the Walnut and Maple veneers, ending up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. Gary installed a crystal-clear dial cover and a period-correct grille cloth. The radio has the original knobs, chassis and Rola speaker. If you are looking for a "Tulip," It would be difficult to find a nicer version than this one! 20"W x 11"H x 9"D.  $995.00. (1600400)
