Vintage Automah. Radio Model 55

One hell of a sharp  vintage radio that not only looks great but also works  This turquoise classic  is Canadian made by Automatic Radio of Canada, Ltd. They where  located at  56 The Esplanade in Toronto. Automatic was a major independent radio manufacturer. They made a wide range of  radios for home use, and even a few TV models in the late 1940's and early 1950's.One of their main product lines was aftermarket auto radios in the 1950's and 60's and they also made radios for other private brads.

As you can see this beauty is a tube radio so you know it predates 1954.Transistors were not invented until 1947 and did not start to replace tubes in radios until 1954.I had too really haggle to grab this kool puppy and it's one of those pieces you don't see that often.Hell it's hard to find info on it .Have to say it's in excellent condition  and measures in at 6 inches by 9 1/4 inches by 4 inches deep at it's wides.Who wouldn't want this baby!
