I have a customer with a Radiobar "Deluxe 507" cabinet. Radiomuseum says it looks like this:
https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/philco_50 ... hilco.html

As far as I can tell, this uses a standard 37-620 chassis. I'm not yet sure about the right speaker.

Regardless, what we need is the rest of the kit---chassis and all the trimmings. I can use anything that is repairable with "reasonable" effort.

Join me in saving this one from being repurposed.....:)

EDIT 10/27; Chassis found

Mark,

I may have one in the garage, it is looking for a new home. Let me check tonight if it is truly what you are looking for.

I will part with a escutcheon inner and outer pieces if you still need one.
Also what color knobs are you looking for?

At this point, I still need everything. Color of knobs? I'm not being flip when I say I need the correct color......I was not aware that there were choices.

The (refinished) cabinet is still at the finisher....ASAP, I'll be going to look at it and see if that helps me look for the right bits. In the limit, I imagine they could refinish any knobs to match what they've already done on the cabinet.......

I'm not that picky on the subject myself and I know there are some Philco experts out here who know if they used black knobs in 1937 or brown, Though I believe they used black.

Black knobs in that style were a 1936 models only, '37 used the brown ones.
