Detrola 178 (1938)
Sold by Joe Millward on April 8, 2020
Listed price on date of sale - $399.00
Detrola was founded in Detroit, Michigan, in 1931 and ceased production in 1948. They manufactured radios for many companies including Western Auto (Truetone) and Sears (Silvertone). There are several models that are basically the same Detrola radio, but with different brand names for different companies. The 178 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set. We replaced all of the capacitors. Check the tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. We installed a new power cord, audio cable for an external device and then aligned the set for top performance. The radio plays strong across the dial with plenty of volume. Gary stripped and refinished the walnut cabinet, using the best toners and grain fillers. He then applied a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The radio retains the original bullet knobs, dial scale and grille cloth. For the Emerson collector, a hard-to-find set, and for the the everyday collector, a beautiful table radio at a great price! 15-1/4"W x 9-1/4"H x 6-1/2"D.
