Looked in NA, with no luck. They jump from about R-146A to R-386A.

There are only 8 wires going to 8 terminals on that drum. There is also a lamp next to the drum. There are push buttons in front.

Looks like it's got pp audio output.
There are ten push buttons on front.
I see a metal box behind the drum partly sticking out. Could that be the motor???
What is this radio worth. Need to know badly.

Might that be a chassis 316A? Model S7427-3, chassis R316 (rider 11-35) looks like an interesting set. 10 tubes, 2 - 5W4, 1 - 6L6, 3 - 6K7, 1 - 6L7, 1 - 6J5, 1 - 6H6 and 1 - 6U5. wired remote control.

Looked up Firestone and used the R316 as the number. Found "R-316 - ch" listed in the 1947 master index near the beginning of the Firestone listings. Model and chassis numbers at the top of page 11-35.

Missed a piece of bad news. One of the pictures shows substantial veneer damage on one side panel on top of radio. I will have to peel off the rest of that veneer, and, replace it. It's flat, fortunately, but, it will be a lot of work. Rest of cabinet is o.k.

Sounds like an intersting find, Bill. I don't get into pricing somebody else's stuff, so if the asking price is agreeable to you, go for it. You only go around once and you can't take it with you. I would probably kick myself later if I really wanted it and passed because of a few dollars. Good luck.

Depends on how you look at it. To get it, I had to pay top dollar on a tv that has case issues. The radio needs one top panel of veneer replaced, but, otherwise, it's good. I'm not looking at resale. It's all for me. Just wanted to know if I paid too much.
I paid 240.00 for both, including delivery. It's on the other side of Tampa, quite a distance from me...

Will make a good 'keeper' set, glad you got it! Shouldn't be too tough to make a remote control for it. May have been manufactured by Stewart Warner.

If that includes shipping/delivery, I'd say you did alright. I don't know how far it is away from you, but I figure at least $1 per mile doing the driving and all the work myself. So you will have maybe $100 in each item by itself. Not a bad day's work if you want the item. Good luck.

I suspect you are right that it was made by Stewart Warner..
Not even sure what the original remote control even looked like.
I'm going to put feelers out for the remote, and, for the front panel parts for the tv.
Otherwise, the tv is complete.........

Hmm. I think the place is at least fifty miles NE of me. It's Brandon, Florida, the other side of tampa. I'd have to cross the bridge of TB, and, drive through busy Tampa to Brandon, east of tampa.

I've got both good, and, bad news.
Items just arrived... TV has safety glass, but, it's broken. There's a piece of wood missing that holds it in.

Radio. Apparently, there's more veneer damage than I thought, but, it's repairable. The dial on this set has tone postitions on it for the different audio tones.
Neat set....

Neat radio Bill, looks like motorized tuning for push buttons plus a corded "remote".  Looks like it would work even if the remote is missing.
Best,  Jerry

Edit: Sorry, looks like all this was figured out and I missed some previous posts. Nice find Bill

Re: Obscure radios

I have an obscure radio that I didn't realize that I had. My "new" Silvertone radio is officially obscure apparently. According to the sticker in the cabinet it is model 1671, chassis 101.601. I can't find it in Riders', Beitman's, Radiomuseum or Radio Attic. I really need a schematic, since the chassis has been hacked, which I knew when I got it. I need to know first what filter caps it takes and how they are wired. I'm done until I get a schematic. This is a seven tube chassis with 25Z6, 25C6, 6U7 (X2) 6C5G, 6F5G and 6K8G. It has four knobs with a row of pushbuttons under the dial. Any ideas?

Could this be your radio WC?
Best,  Jerry

Edit: WC, I did find someone else several years ago looking for a schematic on ARF. No responds to his search. I sent him a PM to see if he had any joy on finding it.
