Midwest 11-36 (1936)
Midwest 11-36 (1936)
NEW!In 1920, Midwest Radio Corporation (Miraco) started making battery radios. In 1932 they produced an eleven-tube set, and in 1933, a sixteen-tube set, all available through mail order. They offered unique Art Deco cabinets, but you could purchase the chassis without a cabinet, a great money-saver. The 11-36 is an eleven-tube, four-band (AM, SWx3) radio. This chassis was used in several console models, making this table set very rare. In fact, it's the only one we've seen! We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tube were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input and antenna lead were installed. Gary stripped the cabinet and ended up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The original chassis, speaker, knobs and grille cloth are with the set. The chrome escutcheon is in excellent condition. This radio is a great performer with console-like bass response with push-pull audio output. There isn't one like it in existence to our knowledge. The Midwest Museum has the export version, but not this domestic version. Whoever gets it is buying a very rare, high-performance radio! 24-1/2"W x 14-1/2"H x 11"D.  $1,995.00. (1600431)
