I bought this radio last year and I finally got around to getting it all done.
I recapped the chassis during the winter and this spring the cabinet was stripped and refinished,
I had to wait for the new plastic dial cover to arrive . and the new decals from Radio Daze.
It is all done now and with the new eye tube it looks good and sounds very nice.
It is a 1940 Westinghouse model 780,and the console model of this radio is known as the
Christmas Story radio.
Enjoy the photos
