Climax UE-64 (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Climax UE-64 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Climax is one of those names that gets the attention of many collectors, mainly due to a couple of really coveted models they made like the streamlined "Ruby" & "Emerald." This one has styling cues like them & that nice multi-colored, large, backlit dial. I call this one "Little Brother" due to the dial & similarity like the wrap-around ends & recessed front. Original grille cloth, knobs, speaker, dial, pointer, etc. with a very clean chassis. This is a seven-tube super-het clean chassis with both AM & SW. Repro cardboard back. Electronically restored, plays with great volume, clarity, and selectivity picking up all my locals & beyond with short wire antenna. Bright green working eye tube. The recent cabinet refinish looks very attractive. I would judge it a 9.5 on 10 scale. Climax Radio & Television merged with General Television in early 30's & a lot of their radios were turned out in the Factory "A," Factory "B" era making it very difficult to tag a model # per se on some sets. Based on the seven-tube complement, I feel this is one of those cases & likely a late version of the UE-64. First time seen & listed here or elsewhere that I can find. 18-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 9"D.
