Bendix 526c (1945) Catalin AM and Bluetooth Radio
ABOUT THIS PIECE
The Bendix model 526C was one of 16 new models announced before an audience of 200
distributors at a showing held in New York City during October of 1945. The line marked the
first incursion of Bendix Aviation Corporation's Radio Division into domestic radio production.
During WWII, they had been a manufacturer of military avionics, but upon the conclusion of
hostilities they turned to home markets to help keep their large and skilled workforce busy.
With its elegant lines and bold, contrasting tones of ebony and marbled green, the 526C sold well in 1946 and is a staunch favorite of collectors today.
This particular radio has a full electronic restoration and it is also Bluetooth enabled which allows you to play anything you like on it directly from your phone, tablet, laptop or home assistant like Amazon Alexa.
