FADA 790 AM/FM (1948)

FADA 790 AM/FM (1948)
FADA 790 AM/FM (1948)
Sold by David Spivey on January 12, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $249.00
This great vintage radio was one of the last sets manufactured by FADA, a company that traced its history back to the 1920's. It is wonderful to listen to, because you can tune in both AM and FM broadcast programming. The model 790 was the earliest and last FADA model featuring both AM and FM reception, when FM broadcasting was quite new. The beautiful brown Bakelite case has no cosmetic issues like chips, cracks or hairline cracks, and still has most of its new showroom shine. The eight-tube chassis is playing excellent on both AM and FM. The chassis has been checked by a pro, and everything that needed replacing was done. The set has a great lighted dial. There are four original front knobs for off/on combined with tone, volume, tuning and band. It has its original back, grille cloth, brassy grille cover and label on the bottom. A great part of FADA history and case design, as well as a great set to listen to a wide variety of programming. About 14"W x 8"H x 7"D.
