American Bosch 420 (1935)

American Bosch 420 (1935)
Robert Bosch founded the Bosch Magneto Company in Germany in 1886. He built a plant in Springfield Mass. in 1911. By 1920, the plant produced half of the electrical starter parts for the American automobile industry. By 1929, they were producing radios. As WWII started, Bosch started producing magnetos for aircraft. Citing possible German loyalties, the USA took over production, returning operations back to Bosch in 1948, changing the name to United American Bosch. The model 420 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,police) mantle radio. The radio is a good performer with great tone, especially the bass response. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. An audio cable and safety fuse we installed. Gary refinished the radio with a stunning "piano" finish. The grille cloth is designed to compliment the Quilted Maple veneer front and the radio has its original knobs. An absolutely gorgeous radio that would grace any collection. 12-1/2"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.  $549.00. (1600187)
