Just completed the restoration of this beautiful highly collectable 1939 Philco tube radio. This the Philco model 39-7. It is a "put anywhere" size of 12.5" long x 7.75" tall x 5.5 deep. The radio's cabinet is refinished and has wonderful wood grains, colors, and maple inlays.
The radio has rounded corners, nicely designed speaker grill, and a beautiful top. There are a few small marks here and there which simply add to the radio's patina. The two original knobs have been cleaned, polished, and resealed.The dial face and pointer are very nice and the pointer works as required. The brass Dial Bezel has been polished and resealed also. There are 6 push buttons that can be adjusted to your local stations via the individual trimmers in the rear of the radio. The brass Station Call Letter bracket has been polished and new Call Letters have been installed.
There is a new Dial Lamp, new AC Power Cord, new speaker grill cloth, and new Audio/Filter Capacitors. Chassis cleaned, all tubes tested, and the remainder of the components tested/adjusted and replaced if needed. Speaker provides excellent projection, tones, and clarity. This little radio has an Antenna pigtail at the rear of the radio which will required a few feet of wire to be attached for proper reception and performance.
Reception and performance will depend on your location, antenna length, and signal strength. Excellent player here with no issues. This radio would look wonderful in you office or home on display. Thank you for looking and please take a look at my other radio's listed.Note: The last Push Button MUST be pushed in to allow use of the Tuning knob to surf the dial for stations.
