Hi all,
I recently brought home a very cool looking Sparton radio/phonograph cabinet, and I plan to fix it up.
I don't have much experience in vintage electronics repair, but I've had just enough success in the past to get me hooked and make me dangerous :mrgreen:
My issue with the Sparton is that I'm having a difficult time figuring out a model # or year, seeing that the paper label on the back of the chassis that I assume would have that info is torn off.
Can anyone help identify this? Does anyone have any tips for how to find info on old units like this?
Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the Antique Radio Forums :D

That is model 1001 which uses Chassis 12L7 from about 1948.

It is unique with that dial assembly and should be a strong performer once restored.

Hope this helps! :D

EDIT: I see the Nostalgia Air data is incomplete. Try this link and scroll to page 112.

Wow, That's everything I was looking for.
Can't wait to hear this puppy sing again.
