Airline 62-317 (1938)


Airline 62-317 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
A chrome-plated chassis was an attempt by manufacturers of the 1930s to position a radio at the high end of the quality spectrum. This Airline wooden table radio has one, and it is a superb performer, with good sensitivity and fidelity on both broadcast and shortwave. Use of multiple curved surfaces and different wood types and colorations give the cabinet a striking look. The multi-color dial includes a small fine tuning dial, a bit like the "split second" indicator used on some Zenith sets of the time. The wooden knobs are original, with the function inscribed on each and highlighted with gold colored filling of the letters. The chassis has been electrically restored to operate as well as it did when brand new, and includes a new-old-stock tuning eye which is bright and crisp. Electrical restoration included a full alignment and replacement of all electrolytic and paper capacitors, as well as replacement of weak tubes and other failing components, including the power cord. 18"W x 10"H x 8-1/2"D.
