The chassis was made by Wells Gardner and can be found here:

A schematic for your chassis can be found listed under Gamble - Skogmo (Coronado).

Truetone radios were sold at Western Auto rather than Gambles. :D

No doubt that Wells-Gardner supplied the identical radios to several retailers including Gambles, which would have been sold under the Coronado brand, and Western Auto under their Truetone brand, and they were also likely supplied to other retailers as well as being sold under the Wells-Gardner name.
