RCA 40X55 (1939)


RCA 40X55 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
When my son was born my brother in law said he was just "struck all over with cute." I had to steal his description for this little RCA. It is simply "struck all over with cute!" Often referred to as the "wavy grille," the design of the front is unique, simple, yet very eye-catching. I put a lot of effort into trying to match the cherry colored tint of the original radio. I gave it a slick, gorgeous finish, with 15 coats of lacquer. There are still a few minor dings, and the dial face has a little damage in the middle. I gave it a full set of high testing tubes, replaced all the capacitors, resistors as necessary, and gave it my usual thorough alignment. Reception is quite good on the internal antenna, but there is an external antenna screw for more distant stations. The sound from the little four-inch speaker is decent at reasonable volume levels. The speaker grille cloth and knobs are not original. RCA provided a phonograph Jack on the rear panel, and I have supplied a cable so you can plug in your mobile device. Just tune the radio off channel and adjust the volume with your mobile device and front panel volume controls. All in all, it is just a darling little radio. 9"W x 8"H x 6"D.
