Click here to add us to your favorites. Click here to view our other antique radios! We post new listings of antique radios frequently! Here we have a very rare 1935 Packard Bell model 45A. One of the most elegant table radios Packard Bell produced, this set features a gorgeous, intricately designed cabinet, beautiful burl grain on the front sides, classy inlays, stunning bright dial, and excellent performance on the AM broadcast and shortwave bands. Cabinet: The dark walnut cabinet is simply stunning. Superior craftsmanship is evident with it’s elegant, and intricate design. Quite unique for the time. Beautiful wood grain flows throughout the entire set with swirling burl on the protruding front columns. The two pillars on each side of the dial is a real eye catcher. Classy pinstripe inlays run from the top of the cabinet half way down the front. All of this beauty, combined with the bright center dial, is quite a sight to behold. Deep grooved sides, housing the side mounted speaker, and dark walnut trim, finish this beauty off with the utmost style and class. You are sure to be the envy of all with this amazing radio proudly displayed in any room of your home or office. The Cabinet’s Finish: All of our radio cabinets undergo a vigorous restoration process using a minimum 12 coats of Mohawk brand lacquers and toners. We use a nitrocellulose piano lacquer which is applied through a professional HVLP turbine spray system in a climate controlled room. A 1000, 2000, & 4000 grit wet sanding follows every third coat. The cabinet is finished off with a three step polishing process ending with an Oz glaze rub. Many hours of work are put into these radios, but as you can see, the final outcome is a beautiful cabinet with gorgeous luster & shine. Our radios are a great piece of history that come to you ready to proudly display, as well as listen to, in any room of the house or office. Dial/Knobs: This radio features one of the most detailed dials you will find. Brightly illuminated by two back lit dial lamps, it displays all the AM broadcast and shortwave frequencies, as well as numerous call letters. The shortwave portion of the dial features a variety of cities and countries corresponding with their station numbers. The dial itself is in perfect shape showing virtually no signs of wear. The dial glass is free from any chips, cracks, or breaks, and the escutcheon has been polished to perfection. All four knobs are in excellent condition and work as they should; tuning, on/off & volume, tone control, and band switch. Electronics/Chassis: The 5 tube chassis has been electronically restored and plays great. All caps, filters, and resistors have been checked and replaced as needed. All tubes have been tested and brittle wires replaced. The chassis has been cleaned, lubed and re-aligned for optimal performance. I‘m able to pick up many stations on the AM broadcast and shortwave bands with sensitive reception, deep rich tone, and plenty of volume. I will include a 30 day warranty on the tubes, caps and filters. I have included a link to a short video clip. This clip will give you a sample of this radio playing on the AM Broadcast band. The video quality isn't the best, due to using a low quality camera to record, however it does the job.
