Style 506

The styles 505/506/508 all used the same cabinet. The model designation differentiated which radio chassis was installed. Initially, the style 505 featured a five tube chassis, the 506 a six tube chassis and 508 an eight tube chassis.

This cabinet does not appear in the 1932 catalog, but is found in a reference from 1935 where it is described as having a 6-tube full all wave (15 to 575 meters) RCA licensed chassis. Price complete was $159.00, and less radio cost $109.00.  It does not appear in the Philco era catalogs.
