1934 Philco Model 16X
Click on the TrueSpeech logo to hear this radio!
This is one of the finest sets Philco ever made. It certainly has an elaborate chassis! This 11-tube monster has a speaker that weighs about 15 pounds, tunes BCB to 22 Mhz, and has a gear reduction scheme in the tuning section that's straight out of Buck Rogers. When this beauty is running there's no need to turn on the room heater! Orig. Price: $175 (!) Number made: 23,475
