Philco 551 Colonial Clock Radio (1932)
Philco 551 Colonial Clock Radio (1932)
This Philco Colonial model 551 is a five-tube, single band, superheterodyne radio with an original working clock! The clock is a manual start, as it predates auto start electric clocks. Give it a spin & it takes off. It keeps accurate time & is in excellent condition. The finials look out of place with the gold color, but are correct. The Philco 551 Colonial Clock-Radio was introduced in January of 1932 with an original selling price of $60, complete with "Philco Balanced Tubes." It was claimed to be an exact reproduction of a 19th century Eli Terry Colonial clock. Note the deep red mahogany case, with the seldom seen, Birdseye Maple inset. The radio has been recently electronically serviced. Original finish, new era correct grille cloth, works great picking up all my local stations and beyond with short antenna wire (supplied). It is complete with original speaker, knobs, etc. It has clear sound and is ready to enjoy! It has the original triplex tube shield & the original factory schematic. These models do not show up very often, so hope you like it enough to purchase now. 22"H x 14"W x 8-1/2"D, shipping weight 30 pounds.  $569.00. (1640169)
