Airline 62-288 "Miracle" (1938)
(Bakelite tube table radio)

Airline 62-288 "Miracle" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The beautiful marble swirl, brown Bakelite cabinet on this popular Montgomery Ward catalog radio, dubbed the "Miracle," was designed by C.J. Manning and patented in December of 1937. These were sold as 1938 models. It was also available in Black Bakelite or White Plaskon. The cabinet on this one is nice save for a stress crack along the backside left corner that really doesn't detract from the radio's appeal. The rest of the cabinet was too nice to necessitate painting it to eliminate the crack completely. It was repaired and reinforced from the inside so it's once again a strong, tight cabinet. The chassis was totally recapped. Controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. A strong tested set of tubes and a new line cord. Nice magic green eye tube that functions as it should. Features six mechanical station pre-set levers. It's a strong playing radio with lots of volume, receiving all of my local stations with its ANT wire connected to an external source for distant reception (or use the aux cable to stream your own audio). 13"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.
