Belmont 740 (1937)
Belmont 740 (1937)
Belmont Radio Corporation based in Chicago, started building radios early on. Advertising stated "Manufacturers of High Grade Radio Receiving Sets Since 1925." In the 1930's, they built wood cathedral styles, wood table sets and consoles, but they are best known for their curvy, streamlined Bakelite designs. The 740 is a seven-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) AC radio. It utilizes two 6F6 tubes for push-pull audio, producing a lot of volume. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, power cord and an audio input were added. Gary did a fantastic refinish, ending up with a hard, "piano" lacquer finish. The original wood knobs are with the set. Belmont made radios for other companies, and this particular model looks a lot like some Airline models I've seen. This is the first one for sale on the Radio Attic, and it's ready for your collection. Come and get it! It won't last long! 20"W x 11-1/2"H x 9"D.  $749.00. (1600408)
