Phonograph with Philco for 1938 (introduced June 1937)

Overview

For the 1938 sea­son, Philco did not mar­ket its own radio-phono­graphs. Instead, Radio­bar Com­pa­ny used Philco chas­sis and Cape­hart auto­mat­ic record chang­ers in a line of radio-phono­graphs of its own, which were called "Phono­graph with Philco."

Prices and pro­duc­tion fig­ures are not avail­able for these mod­els.
