I had a nice PHILCO 40-170 Chair side I was restoring and there was a mishap at the shop and the cabinet was destroyed. I know Philco used this chassis in several different models So maybe someone out there could use this.

-Restored Chassis, all caps replaced, tubes and resistors checked, sockets and pots cleaned. Even cleaned and lubed all the dial string mechanism and works smooth as silk. This is a transformer set, stations come in plentiful, strong and powerful. Has push button auto tuning that works great as well.
-Original Speaker works and looks healthy. Little buzz in the VC but I am 99% sure due to some dust dirt from sitting.
-Antenna, the original antenna in great working order.
I also have a video of it playing I will try and post later
