Trav-Ler T502 (1947)
Trav-Ler T502 (1947)
I purchased this radio on eBay, presuming it was an Air Castle model 328. The cabinet and chassis are identical to an Air Castle 328. The confusing part was that the rear cover is clearly stamped "Model T502." Eventually I was able to identify it as a Trav-Ler T502. Turns out Trav-Ler supplied this radio to Spiegel to sell under their Air Castle brand. The finish was terrible so I repainted it in the proper ivory color. The camera made it a bit lighter than it actually is. A few minor flaws in the otherwise perfect finish. It has a nice, brightly lit dial. The radio came to me with a full set of Hytron tubes that all test new or better. I replaced all of the capacitors and most of the resistors. Full alignment. Receives well on the internal antenna, but has external antenna wires for more distant stations. The back cover leaves a bit to be desired, but I repaired it the best I could and left it for originality. Original grille cloth. The knobs are showing their age, but are presentable. Broadcast only. The best I can tell, this is the only radio of this model in existence. If rare is your thing, this is your radio! 10"W x 6-1/4"H x 5"D. Was $149.00, now $129.00.   $149.00. (1680091)
