Grantline Radio Model 510 series A
W. T. Grant pre 1948
AM broadcast band, battery or line power portable.
Battery powered or line. This unit is in sad shape. DBT showed a functioning oscillator. No stations receivable. I did not test any further. This is one of my garage puppies. Perhaps it will be a student project in my Solder Smoke Burnt Finger presentation.
This is a rough radio. But it should be pretty good looking after restoration. The cabinet is strong, the covering needs total replacement. A new carry handle is in line. The only thing that would stop this chassis from playing would be open or burnt IF transformers. A simple DC ohm meter test should verify the winding's integrity.
