Fairbanks-Morse 5C-T3 (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Fairbanks-Morse 5C-T3 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Fairbanks-Morse started selling radios in 1934 in Chicago, in the plant that originally housed the Audiola Radio Co., which Fairbanks-Morse purchased. They moved radio production to Indianapolis in 1936. In 1939, the Indianapolis plant burned down, and Fairbanks-Morse ceased radio production in the USA. They did continue to produce radios and later televisions in Canada. The 5C-T3 is a five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set. The large, multi-colored dials were a feature of their radios. They were quality radios, and always get a lot of attention in collections. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. We installed a safety fuse, new power cord, audio input cable and wired in a new antenna. Gary did his usual masterful work on the rounded cabinet. He ended up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. It has the original knobs, a period-correct grille cloth, and the chassis, dial and speaker are all original. If you're looking for a Fairbanks-Morse for your collection, this beautifully restored radio will fill the bill! 17-3/4"W x 12-1/4"H x 9-1/4"D.
