    Don’t know what type this is, but for $50., It would be worth it for parts. Picking it up tomorrow. Got the eye roll from my wife, so this will have to be it for a while 😉

    Gary , it looks like a Philco model 38C-7 It might be a different model as the veneer is a little different than the one I owned.

    As you might know , Philco had different models with different codes
    Here are photos of the one I owned..
    Those Philcos have the capacitor blocks in them, which a lot of guys don’t like.
    I also found that the concentric tuning dial in mine was a little finicky, and I had to fiddle with it a while so it would turn smooth.

    It looks like it is a 38-4 model. At lease the veneer looks the same.

    WoW! you are the radio sleuthmeister. I’m getting better at digging up info slowly and can find good copies of schematics to download (from several sites) now so I’m getting the hang of it.
    Will pick it up this afternoon and have a look for the first time. present owner knows nothing about the radio. One rear view shows all the tubes in place, so it seems complete. Thanks again for ID’ing the radio.

    I’m back home and the radio is in the semi heated garage for the meantime. The radio dial is flopping around quite loosely and I have started reading about how it works and I’m pretty sure it’s busted in some way but I’ll check it when I bring the radio in the house later. Chassis looks complete,but some of the veneer is not great. I Suspect I have a parts radio. It was in a “rustic” restaurant 1 hour south of Montreal that the owner has sold, as decor and I can just imagine how many kids fiddled the knobs, although It didn’t look like a kid friendly place.
