Firestone Air Chief S-7398-1 "Beaumont" (1941)
Sold by Joe Millward on August 13, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $399.00
Firestone was based in Akron, Ohio in 1900 producing rubber tires for the new automobile industry. In 1928, they sponsored "The Voice Of Firestone" radio program that eventually went to television ending in 1963. Firestone produced many products to sell in their tire stores including radios to compliment the long running "Voice of Firestone." Different companies manufactured the radios to be sold under the Firestone name. The Beaumont is a six-tube, AM-only radio that was manufactured by Stewart-Warner. The distinctive cabinet was made by Ingraham Clock Company who made special cabinets for several radio companies. Blake once again restored the electronics, replacing all of the capacitors. He checked all of the resistors and tubes and replaced where needed. He installed a safety fuse, a new power cord and added an audio cable. After a perfect alignment this radio performs well across the dial. The cabinet retains a perfect "faux" finish strip across the top and bottom. The cabinet was refinished to a beautiful gloss lacquer finish. A really nice table radio at a great price that will play for years! 13"W x 8"H x 7"D.
