Western Air Patrol 38 (1936)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Western Air Patrol 38 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Western Air Patrol were sold on the west coast through Western Auto Supply stores. These radios were made at the Gilfillan factory in Los Angeles. For the east coast stores, they were marketed as Truetone and came out of the Gilfillan factory in Kansas City. The relationship between the two locations was very complicated and lengthy to go over here, simply two different makes of radios sold by the same company. Gilfillan made a lot of the chassis for them, but they also used other companies as well, all of them working out of the Gilfillan factories. The model 38 is a five-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. We checked the tubes and resistors and replaced where necessary. The original cloth cord was in good shape, so we left it with the radio. We added an audio cable for Bluetooth, iPad etc. The cabinet has an earlier restoration and has a really nice semi-gloss finish. This is the first model 38 sold at the Radio Attic, and the first one I have seen.This unique and good performing radio is solid and ready for your collection! 11-3/4"W x 15"H x 9"D.
