TrueTone Model 1748 on

TrueTone was the brand name for electronic equipment sold through Western Auto (Supply Company). Western Auto started business in 1909 and died, sadly, in 2003. Other well-known companies had branded electronics as well; e.g., Sears had Silverline and Montgomery Ward had Airline. TrueTone models D1747 and D1748 were cabinet-style combination radio receiver and phonograph. This schematic and parts list set from a 1947 issue of Radio News magazine did not include any service data, as was provided for most radios published. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. A running list of all data sheets is shown at the bottom of the page to facilitate a search.

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
