Manufactured by Belmont for United Motors Service under the Delco brand, the R-1134 originally sold for $16.95, two dollars cheaper than its R-1135 ivory colored cousin. This nice Delco R-1134 was purchased off ebay in need of restoration. Particularly, the cabinet needed polishing and the dial was damaged and warped. I had already reproduced the dial image for the R-1135 as shown below several years earlier and was able to quickly reproduce another dial for this example. The electronics only needed new capacitors. All the original Sprague and Solar Sealtite paper capacitors were restuffed to maintain the historical appearance. The original 3-in-1 electrolytic capacitor was long gone so replacements were soldered in place.
