1935 Stromberg-Carlson Model 61-L AM, Shortwave and Police Ban. Cabinet does have a few scratches on it, but still quite presentable. The speaker cloth is so rotted it literally falls apart it you touch it. The chassis appears unmolested. And of course, the power cord has been cut off. Purchased in 2017 for $9.99. This is another rebuilt thread. All the images are new (1-8-2020) As always many thanks to our webmaster for his assistance.

 

Another one in line.

My Parents

Bought a new Stromberg Carlson Hi Fi in 1952 , Then it cost 200,00 which would be a fortune today, I can remember Daddy stacking big band records on it when I was a kid, It quit in the 70s and then we couldn't find anyone to fix it But it would shake the floor.

Beautiful radio!

While your other radios are nice, I really like the style of this one. Hope you can get it back in top shape.

When I see the Stromberg-Carlson name, I think of the PA system in the elementary school I attended. It was original to the schools construction from 1952. A place I worked back in the early 80's had Stromberg-Carlson 1A2 phones, which looked identical to Western Electric models.

Another nice radio! I really like the wood work around over the speaker grill.

 

My only complaint is that it looks like only one glass tube. I like glass tubes because of the pretty glow. Simple minds, simple pleasures, I guess...

 

I initially thought that the tubes would have been originally glass. But interestingly, the metal style tube was apparently around at the time this radio was made. (Obviously, tubes were changed--you can see different maker names--but the style might be authentic.)

My grandparents bought a Stromberg-Carlson TV new in 1952. It died in 1961 and they shoved it to a corner of the living room and used it to pile their books on. I still have it and would love to find someone that can fix it. S-C was the king of TV's before Zenith stole that title from them and held it for decades.
