Packard-Bell 35A (1934)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Packard-Bell 35A (1934)

Here is a unique, eye-catching & restored West Coast Pre-War Packard-Bell. Both AM & SW bands are very selective and reception is great. Five tubes + tone control. This is a seldom seen radio, except possibly on West Coast? The five-tube receiver is a fine set, playing with a great deal of selectivity and sound. My tech replaced all of the filters and caps, checked tubes & replaced where needed. With the classic porthole dial, the radio has cool looking accents with contrasting veneers as you can see. The unique BC dial tunes from R to L on top half but opposite way on SW (lower half). The fluted open ends both have repro era correct grille cloth. Knobs, lighted dial, etc. all are original. Nice clean chassis as well. This terrific table radio's dial is a stand out in a dark or well lit room! Packard Bell naming has quite a history: In 1934 Herb Bell formed venture with Edward Jackson called Jackson Bell Radio Co. Jackson sold out to Bell who then partnered with Leon Packard to form Packard-Bell. Their 1st model offering was this 35A. Leon Packard was unhappy with the course of Packard-Bell Company, and asked Herb Bell to buy his share in 1935. Packard-Bell was a family business of five brothers who designed, manufactured & marketed their own products. 14"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $329.00. (1640292)
