Silvertone 7172 (1936)

Silvertone 7172 (1936)
NEW!This Silvertone radio is a very beautiful and rare model. It was manufactured by Corona Radio and Television Co. in Chicago, IL. The chevron pattern on the top and down the front of the radio looks really good. It has five tubes, AM and SW. Controls: On/Off/Volume, Tone, Band and Tuning. The chassis was cleaned and all controls were cleaned and lubricated and operate smooth and properly. All of the tubes were tested and any bad or weak tubes were replaced. All electrolytic and wax paper capacitors were replaced with current production Mylar capacitors. All resistors were tested and any that were out of tolerance were replaced with current carbon resistors. A new polarized AC cord was installed and a resistor was added in line to reduce the voltage to 108 to 110 volts to keep the transformer cool. The cabinet was stripped and even though there was a crack on the right side, I didn't want to replace it since the cabinet is all original and in such good shape. It really doesn't detract from the looks at all. The cabinet was refinished with Mohawk nitrocellulose toners and lacquer with light smoothing between coats. 14-1/4"W x 11-1/2"H x 8"D.  $425.00.
