I need a Philco 37-61 chassis. Must be complete and serviceable--eg good PT, coils, etc.---I will get a repro dial if needed. This is for a radiobar, and I would like to confirm some measurements before closing the deal.

Do you want a chassis where the work is all but done or a raw chassis to do the work yourself? Earlier this year I bought a 37-61 chassis only for parts but found it had possibilities and I just couldn't tear into it. Just tonight I all but finished a restoration on it including cleaning and painting the chassis and installing new rubber parts on the tuner assembly. It still needs an AC power cord installed, the dial light innards replaced, a repro tuning dial and an alignment but seems to work fine on AM/SW. I was going to look for just a cathedral cabinet for it but I'd be happy to know this one went into a Radiobar.

PM me and I can explain a few other details about it and send you some pics.

P.S. - After I wrote this reply I happened upon your thread about the Radiobar. Ron Ramirez had said that the 37-61 was the correct chassis but you were wondering about the bottom center shaft being higher than the other two as they all look at the same level. I measured my chassis and the center (band switch) shaft is in fact about 3mm higher than the other two shafts.

Pix,
Where are you on this project? Do I need to go look in the shed to see if what I have?

I think something is lined up, but I don't have details yet.....still considering all options.
Even if I get a chassis, I may still be needing a speaker and knobs.

I finally got to it today.The radio worked when it went out to the shed but now it seems there is a broken tube with the octal key broken in the socket so I will need to get that out and test it out if you are still interested.
