Detrola 149 (1936)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Detrola 149 (1936)

Rare 1936 Detrola radio model 149. Detrola was based in Detroit and made many radios for Truetone (Western Auto) and other retailers including Walgreens. This model is a five-tube super-het chassis which plays on both AM and Shortwave. The radio has a large and impressive 6-inch wide multi-colored dial with the major clear channel stations detailed for easy selection. The radio has a tone control. The waterfall cabinet has been refinished by a prior collector with a nice finish. The condition and quality of his work is excellent. The speaker cloth looks to be a period and looks great. The knobs are factory originals. All capacitors have been replaced and all other components such as tubes and resistors have been checked and replaced where bad or weak. The radio is a early "All American Five" circuit offering the terrific reception qualities they were known for. I am including an AM transmitter and Bluetooth module at no cost. There is no installation or modification needed and you'll be able to use your device to play any music through the radio you wish. 17-3/4"W x 11"H x 8"D. I accept mailed checks for payment. Please email me your address for an accurate shipping quote.  $579.00. (1650616)
