935M to be exact. That has to be quite the beast. Looks like there's some nice flame mahogany but looks faded. $350.

I have one in similar condition.

Interesting radio with a motor driven bandswitch. You can set the preset buttons for AM or FM and it will shift to the band you set that button for. Bass and Treble controls are levers on either end of the dial.

I think I counted 4 tubes for FM only. You get a very complex but powerful 11 tube AM/SW receiver. Those P-P 6L6G are rated at 19 watts OP by S-C. I suppose you could make a converter for modern FM.

Ones I had were similar, had semi rounded doors, an extra knob for rotating the drum antenna and FM unit was plugged in and mounted to the left of main chassis, dial cord ran over to main chassis. Kinda a PITA to line up the two tuning cond. on reassembly. Heavy on the bass tones.

Hoffies, you're describing the 1941 model 535

This is a 935 which is a 1942 model. Quite a bit more refined :D

Yes, that # 35 rang a bell and didn't take time to research the model I had. The changes in those days in just one year shows how fast technology was advancing over the early 1930's. Was the bad insulation on wires also with SC, been along time since I owned them.

I have a 935-PLM, and would love to have a 935-M, but I'm much too far away :( . Great radios, but the re-stringing of the motorized band switch pulley is, well, hard to describe in decent language LOL. Hope it's loved, wherever it winds up.
