Truetone D745 radio

Truetone is the house brand of Western Auto Supply, a now-defunct auto parts chain that ran from 1909 to 2003. It was ultimately absorbed by Advance Auto Parts.

It seems odd today to think of an auto parts store selling radios, but Western Auto wasn't the only one: Firestone and Goodyear both sold radios under their brand names. Truetone seems to me one of the more popular of the house brands.

Current status: this radio is no longer in my collection. This page will be removed in late 2024.
