 Exact item shown, Philco  C-1550 radio unit - I got this for my 1938 Plymouth, but through a series of very unfortunate circumstances, I had to sell the car (or engage in an expensive lawsuit to get it back), so I don't need this radio any more.  The schematic and tube layout is on the radiomuseum site, here:

 http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/philco_chrysler_c1550.html, These are an easy to work on radio, and this one is in pretty good unrestored condition - I powered it up and it hums which says that the vibrator and power system is working, it hisses a little and barely picks up what I think is the strongest station around here - this is consistent with leaking paper-wax capacitors.  It is a simple restoration to change the capacitors, realign the radio and have it ready for use.  Another advantage is that this radio is original and unrestored, it hasn't been damaged by cheap work by someone who didn't know or care what they were doing - I've had it in my garage for many decades.  Oh, by the way, the photos on the radiomuseum site are of my radio, I uploaded them (you will see that in the credits), so don't be surprised that they match.  Note the good condition of the grill cloth - this is as good as I've seen it, and you know it's 100% original, not a reproduction.

This site http://philcoradio.com/autorad/autorad.htm says the C-1550 was used in 1940 Chrysler products.  However this model looks a lot like the one in the owner's manual for my 38 Plymouth and the alignment instructions on radiomusem are dated 1937 and say the model C-1550 is for Chrysler C-18, C-19, C-20 and Desoto S-5 (http://www.radiomuseum.org/schemaviewer/usa_philco_c1550_align.pdf).  Nostalgia air says it's 1938 and earlier.   (http://www.nostalgiaair.org/Resources/957/M0013957.htm)  I do know that the control head from my 38 Plymouth would connect to it because I tested it, I also know that the head from a 37 dodge would work.  So it will fit in the mid 30s Chrysler products, please use your judgment to decide if it is right for your car.
