Western Air Patrol radios sold!
|Sold by Joe Millward on October 29, 2018|
Listed price on date of sale - $649.00
|Up for sale we have a rare Western Air Patrol console radio. These were sold on the west coast through Western Auto Supply stores. These radios were made at the Gilfillan factory in Los Angeles. For the east coast stores, they were marketed as Truetone and came out of the Gilfillan factory in Kansas City. The relationship between the two locations was very complicated and lengthy to go over here, simply two different makes of radios sold by the same company. Gilfillan made a lot of the chassis for them, but they also used other companies as well, all of them working out of the Gilfillan factories. This is a really nice eleven-tube radio with a perfect chrome chassis, and it's the only Western Auto model that I have seen with a chrome chassis. The chassis has been gone through in an older restoration, making this a good performing three-band radio. The cabinet is original with a little bit of damage on the wood grill work on one side. Other than that it's in great condition. This radio is just as I acquired it and will fall under our 180 day guarantee. This radio will be carefully packed and shipped by Greyhound. 38"H x 23"W x 14"D.|
