Grunow 670 (1934)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Grunow 670 (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

In 1933, Grunow Corporation of Chicago merged with U.S. Radio and Television to form General Household Utilities Company. From 1933 on, they continued with the brand Grunow, coming out in 1936 with "Teledial Twelve" console radio nicknamed the "Shirley Temple" as the child star was used in advertising. The model 670 is a six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. He checked all of the resistors and tubes, replacing all out-of-tolerance components. A safety fuse, audio input cable and new power cord were installed, along with a new antenna lead wire. The radio was aligned and plays strong across the dial with good sensitivity and plenty of volume. Gary stripped the cabinet. He refinished the Walnut veneers using high quality toners and lacquer, ending up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original speaker, chassis, knobs and dial scale are present and we installed a period-correct grille cloth. This is a really nice example of a model 670 and is priced right, ready for your collection! 19"H x 14"W x 10"D.
