Airline 62-376 (1937)


Airline 62-376 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In May of 1935, the Rural Electrification Administration was formed to start providing electricity to rural areas of the country. In May of 1936, The Rural Electrification Act was enacted. At about the same time, the Airline 62-376 battery set was being manufactured, only to be obsolete in a few years. All of the major radio manufacturers offered battery sets to accommodate people who lived in the rural ares of the USA. This six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set was designed to operate with a six-volt battery, the voltage of car batteries at that time. We are providing a Silvertone "Power Shifter" six volt battery eliminator. Blake completely went through the set replacing all capacitors. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where necessary. Gary refinished the cabinet with a beautiful lacquer finish. The radio has its original knobs and a bright "tuning eye" tube. The dial scale is like-new. We will provide instructions of the simple. connection process. Here is a complete functioning battery set for your collection. What a piece of American history! 18"W x 10"H x 9"D.
