That is a nice looking radio. I once tried to make an electronic vibrator for a '38, but didn't find enough room in the metal can. I bolted a couple MOSFETs to the underside of the chassis, drove them with 110 HZ, it worked. Those are beautiful, bright, sharp pictures on the TVs, none of mine ever looked that good. I grew up with tubes in the 50s, but by the time I started working, ICs were just starting to catch on. I'm watching for a 12LP4 or 12QP4 (round) CRT for my '48 ANDREA VK12. Restoring it for a couple reasons: I had one in school; it uses an INDUCTUNER covering from CHANNEL ONE to channel 13 in a continuous tuning range, including everything in between (ham, police, FM).

Those TV's are beautiful, remind me of Howdy Doody!I have a radio just like yours in my 40 LaSalle. The presets are set with a screwdriver under each button. Can't remember exactly how to do it, could be turning them with the button pushed in will set the station. Or you push in on the screw and turn to tune.My radio worked OK for several years and sounded good. It was rather weak compared to a modern radio. It would only work in areas with very strong signals. Not sure I had the whip antenna set up properly. It drew lots of current too. Ignition noise was a problem with mine, I probably needed some extra capacitors and suppression stuff.It finally quit and I have not repaired it. Someday I will, once I get the energy to fish that heavy unit from behind the dash!Happy Listening! Bill

Yes, that's the one. I just don't know where I'll find a CRT for mine. Maybe a much newer rectangular CRT could be adopted? Bruce
