Packard-Bell 48 "Two-Tone" (1936)

Packard-Bell 48 "Two-Tone" (1936)
This radio is a bit mystifying. Packard-Bell had a few model 48 radios. The 48 had a vertical dial and ornate grille. The 48-B has a different horizontal dial with a rather plain grille.The 48-E has the same dial as the 48 "Two Tone", which has a totally unique linear grille. They all have the classic "stationed"Packard-Bell dial. The "Two-Tone" is an eight tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set. The only picture we could find was a factory illustration. In fact, we couldn't find one that sold at any time. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. All of the resistors and tubes were check and replaced where needed. The new eye tube is bright and active. A safety fuse, new power cord and audio cable were installed. The original speaker and chassis were used. Gary skillfully restored the mahogany and walnut cabinet, ending up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, and a reproduction grille cloth which is very similar to the original. Once again, we keep finding these radios that no one has, with little information, and never found on the radio Attic. Come and get it! 17"W x 9-3/4"H x 8-1/2"D.  $549.00. (1600275)
