Stewart-Warner R-176 (1935)


Stewart-Warner R-176 (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Stewart-Warner started up in Chicago in the early 1900's. Known to this day for automobile instrumentation, their speedometers were used initially in the Ford model T, and they quickly grew into a large, international company. They were a diverse company, and manufactured radios starting in 1925, ending production in 1954. The R-176 was a Canadian made seven-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked, replacing where necessary. We installed a new power cord, safety fuse and audio input cable. The cabinet has Walnut, maple and mahogany veneers. Stewart-Warner is known for their gorgeous cabinets, and this one is no exception. Gary stripped off the old finish. He restored the cabinet, ending up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. This unique radio is one of those "hard-to-find" sets. It is a good performer, and a great addition to anyone's collection. 15"H x 13"W x 9-1/2"D.
