Airline 15GCB-1583 (1951)

Airline 15GCB-1583 (1951)
Sold by Tom Albrecht on August 23, 2017
Listed price on date of sale - $150.00
This Airline Bakelite table radio is a little smaller than it looks. A sonic surprise is that the speaker faces out the left side, even though the wraparound grille would suggest it should face forward like many other radios of this general design. The Bakelite cabinet is in very nice conditions, with no chips, cracks, or significant scratches. There are a few flakes of graphics missing from the reverse painted glass dial, but it doesn't look bad. The chassis is a classic "All American Five" and performs perfectly, with superb sensitivity and good sound quality. Restoration included replacement of all electrolytic and paper capacitors, new resistors where needed, a strong set of tubes, a full RF and IF alignment, a new dial light bulb, a new polarized power cord with rewiring of the power switch circuit for reduced shock hazard, and installation of a fuse and fuse holder for improved overall safety. This is a radio you can use every day and count on for good reliability for many years. Being relatively small and light, this radio will be fairly inexpensive to ship. 11-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.
