Zenith 6-P-429 (1940)


Zenith 6-P-429 (1940)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how many radios I look at and look for, there are some that I have never seen before except for pictures. Gary found this radio in a collection in Seattle, WA and grabbed it! It's very unique as it has an upside down mounted Bakelite chassis. This particular configuration was used on a handful of models in 1940. The radio was short lived as Zenith ended up recalling it for some reason, making it a bit more collectable due to a limited production. This five-tube, two-band (SB,police) AC radio was a challenge to restore and reassemble. It took a little time to figure out the exact sequence for reassembly. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked tubes and resistors, replacing where needed. He install a new power cord and a safety fuse. Gary refinished the Mahogany cabinet with his usual finesse. He always uses the best products available and ends up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. Possibly one of the rarest radios we've had for sale at the Radio Attic. Priced to sell and ready to adorn your collection. 13"H x 9-1/2"W x 7"D.
