Silvertone 6218 (1939)


Silvertone 6218 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The 4000, 5000, and 6000 series of Silvertone radios remind me of 1936-1939 years of Zenith radio manufacturing. Zenith was on the cutting edge of electronics and design, and Silvertone was doing the same thing with their manufacturers. Silvertone had a "keeping up with the Jonses" mentality. Some of my favorite Silvertone sets have 4000 and 6000 model numbers. They had "big dial" sets, large tube count table and consoles, some of which are just as iconic as the Zenith "big dial" radios. The 6218 is a seven-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio is a very good performer on both bands. This radio was a six volt set as well as a 120 volt set. Blake installed a new transformer making it a 120VAC radio only. He replaced all of the capacitors, checked tubes and resistors, replacing where needed. A new power cord, audio cable and a safety fuse were installed. The radio has a new, bright and active eye tube and has great sensitivity across the dial The radio cabinet is original. Blake cleaned it up and it has original knobs and push buttons. The dial scale is original and like new. A large, unique radio that's in fantastic condition. 21"W x 11"H x 9-1/2"D.
