Philco 42-323 (1942)


Philco 42-323 (1942)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
A low production model in Philco's 1942 abbreviated line-up, and you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer example. It's been recapped and aligned/peaked and really is a powerhouse for a six-tube set. I'm getting stations on both ends of the dial with the volume barely cracked and lots in between. Shortwave is equally active. One of the best performing small tabletop sets I've encountered. The original leatherette covering on the sides of the cabinet is near perfect, as is the Tenite front panel, with just a slight bow inward of one of the horizontal bars that's only visible if you're looking straight down the front (see photos). An amazingly preserved piece of Tenite (usually these are hopelessly warped). The glass dial is very nice too with no paint loss. The top was stripped and refinished with toner, as was the bottom wood strip where the knobs protrude through. Exact reproduction decals were replaced, and a light coat of clear enamel was added for durability. 13-1/2"W x 9"H x 8-1/2"D.
