Philco mystery

Post by Jb121 on Mon May 01, 2017 10:30 pm

I picked up this Philco for a couple of bucks with the intent of making it functional again. This is my first attempt at a radio "restoration". My normal areas of collecting are antique fans and lamps. With that said, I assumed that looking up the manufacturer and model number would be a breeze. After multiple hours scouring the internet, I've come away with nothing. I am hoping that one of the experienced members of the site can help me get started by pointing me in the direction of what it is that I have. Thanks in advance.

I looked on the Radio Attic website and found two model's that are a close match to yours. One is model number C579 and the other is model number D593-124. The only difference between those two radio's and yours is cabinet color. I looked up both numbers on the Nostalgia Air website and could not find a schematic. That radio was made in 1958 so might be too new to be on Nostalgia Air. Maybe someone on here has access to a Sam's photofact directory and can lead you toward getting a photofact copy of the schematic for this radio. I hope this help's even though i didn't get too far for you. Sorry

Download the Beitmans manuals over at American radio history site. I would look through the 57,58,59 to see if I could find it.
