    It’s only the case for $50, but I’m in love with the Deco lines!!! How impossible would it be to find the “guts” for this

    Update/ It’s a Raymond Loewy Art Deco Skyscraper radio Westinghouse WR 15 Columnaire Jr. But I think/hope this one came with a clock or else someone cut a big hole in the front! The speaker fires up!

    If anyone is still around here, I purchased the case which is mint and I’m looking for the clock and chassis if someone has a lead on one.

    Hi Gary, did a little research and found that the rca r-11 chassis is the same also.

    Hi Sterling, Thanks for the info, I hunted around as well and it shares the chassis with several RCA tombstones, but I got conflicting information. One place said RCA chassis r10, another said chassis r15 and R-7. I’m less worried about the chassis and more on the hunt for the missing clock. I am pursuing some leads.

    Perfect let me know what you find out. Will the wr8 clock work? There seems to be more of them around.

    I’m drawing a blank with the clock. Sterling, if you see one working or not, that would be amazing I’ve decided to install modern innards with a digital screen where the tuner would be. It won’t affect the outward appearance.

    Have you tried any of the face book groups for one?

    No I haven’t,but I’m putting it on the back burner for now. I found someone in Toronto that has a WR8 with the same clock and they sent me a pic of the clock face which I should be able to enlarge and mount on MDF with a battery clockwork for now.

    Thanks, Gary

    Hello Gary

    The WR8 is the american version of the canadian 801, it has an 8 inches square clock. What you need is the american WR10 or the canadian 101 wich has a ten inches rectangular clock.

    Thanks for the heads up Daniel. I’ve only found one in Toronto,but it’s still in the case and too much coin. I have given up trying to find one and will likely graft in another clockwork.

    Thanks again, Gary
