TrueTone D3603A Refurb
A Western Auto Portable.
This is a swell portable, probably from around the 1957 time frame. My mom had one of these, in Green (D3603A) — I've never seen an example of the Maroon model (D3604A). Her's had a melted speaker grill grid, probably where she'd set an iron too close to it. It wound up on a garage-sale table and was gone, probably sometime in the 1980s.
My good friend Mike Stute had one when he collected and resold radios. I mentioned my mom had had one just like it and he (generously) gave it to me.
