Airline 62-256 (1937)


Airline 62-256 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The mail-order company was started in Chicago around 1872 by Aaron Montgomery Ward. They started selling radios in their catalog in 1921, but after lawsuits and patent issues, real Airline radio sales started in 1932. Wards never manufactured any radios, they were made by many other companies and sold under the Airline brand name. The company went out of business in 2001. The 62-256 is a six-tube, two-band (AM,SW) set. The capacitors were all replaced with new-world values. The resistors and tubes where checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, antenna lead and an audio input were installed. The Walnut cabinet was stripped and refinished using the best quality products. The final step was a lacquer "piano" finish. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are present. The grille cloth is "period correct" found in another radio. This radio has lots of volume and great tone, and the eye tube is bright and active. A really good-looking radio for your collection! 14"W x 9"H x 7"D.
