Picked this radio up at an auction last weekend. There's not much info about Winchester radios on the internet, did they make their own radio or did they slap their name on another radio?

My dad was thinking this came out of a console of some type, it came with a speaker grill and a large folded horn made for the inside of a cabinet with a Utah driver on it was in another lot that I got. Tube lineup is 226 (5), 227 (1), 171-A (2), and 280 (1).

These two links are about all we've found

Winchester didn't make radios. They contracted Day-Fan to make their radios.

It looks like that was a pull out chassis from a console cabinet. Gun collectors value these Winchester radios far more then do radio collectors. Excellent examples have sold for around $800 to $1000 on Ebay. I don't think your chassis would be valued anything near that but if you didn't pay all that much for it, you could stand to make some decent profit on Ebay.
