Arvin 518 "Phantom Baby" (1936)


Arvin 518 "Phantom Baby" (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here is a very compact miniature tombstone at only 9"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D and highly collectible. It is part of Arvin's "Phantom" series sets. This one is dubbed "Phantom Baby." The Arvin Phantom Baby model 518 is featured in the flier "New 1938 Arvin Radios" from 1937 which emphasizes on the "Phantom Filter" Circuit (in "Life" October 18th 1937) and in ads on "ten years of radio progress." Gorgeous multi-colored (green, yellow, white & black) dial with popping red center light. Original wooden knobs, speaker, dial, etc. This is a five-tuber that plays very well with the short antenna attached having been recently restored electronically replacing all caps, weak tubes, out of spec resistors and alignment. Very clean chassis as well. Glows! The finish appears original and displays well, though it appears the top has been refinished but matches rest very well.
