This is listed on CL in Los Angeles as working. Were most 627's sole in a Cathedral case? I've never seen this console before. Any info about it would be great. Listed for $250.

That's a RCA Radiola Super VIII cabinet that was repurposed to house an Atwater Kent 627 chassis.

Looks like whoever installed the AK did a really good job. Nice looking radio! :!:

Well, they cut into the drop down door to install the dial and knobs.

I had a Radiola Super VIII cabinet with a 1935 Crosley installed. Fortunately, whoever did it didn't butcher the cabinet, so i could put it back to being a Super VIII.

This one would be a challenge to put it back, but as Tom says, it does look nice!
