Delco R-1401 Portable (1936)

Delco R-1401 Portable (1936)
Sold by Palette on May 29, 2018
Listed price on date of sale - $500.00
This fully-operational radio, now that its cellulose fabric cover has aged and yellowed, reminds New Mexico residents, past and present, of an abridged version of the "zia" symbol. The zia appears on both our license plates and the state flag. Of course, Delco had no way of predicting how this radio's appearance would evolve over 75 years! Portability is a central feature to this radio's being. In fact, it looks like and weighs about as much as a travel suitcase. We wouldn't recommend that you bring it aboard your next flight and put it under your seat, though. Our technician replaced four tubes, six metalized capacitors, created a battery pack, two "D" battery holders, and box (ten 9VDC batteries, two 1.5VDC batteries).
