Philco 89B Code 123 Cathedral (1935)


Philco 89B Code 123 Cathedral (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This Philco 89B series 5 is a later version of one of Philco's longest running and most successful cathedral radios. Sometimes referred to as the "baby grand." By 1935 Philco had it right. The electronics are very well refined. The tuning is spot on all across the dial B/C and S/W. Receiver sensitivity is very good. The sound is rich and full and is better than many consoles. The finish on this radio is possibly the slickest I have ever done. It is absolutely gorgeous. The sides are actually a little darker than in my photos and match the front perfectly. As with all my Philcos, I removed both the electrolytic and the tar caps and stuffed them with new ones to maintain original look and performance. New resistors as necessary and a full alignment. A few minor veneer repairs and a new grille cloth. Unfortunately the chassis and cabinet labels are pretty much toast. Beyond that, if you buy this radio, you will have one of the nicest examples of the Philco model 89B around. 16-1/2"H x 13-1/2"W x 9-1/2"D.
