1930's Pure Oil Station Promotional Radio

There are apparently three or more versions of this unusual radio. One has AM only, another has AM and SW. It's thought that the AM/SW version was built by Best Radio in Chicago based on the unique paper chassis ID label that has only been seen on their products.

Original AM only Pure Station cabinet with incorrect Emerson chassis in place. Note that base isn't recessed at chassis area nor routed out for 3rd control knob as in above photos.
Dimensions and clear photos are needed of the AM only version of this radio so that a chassis may be found and installed. The AM only version has a flat base, which is not recessed in chassis area, nor routed out as it only has volume and tuning controls.
