Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)


Zenith 6-D-030 (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The 6-D-030 was designed by Charles and Ray Eames. They created a low-cost process of "molding" plywood to create graceful angles and curves. They designed an award-winning chair that was on display in the Museum of Modern Art. For Zenith radio cabinets, they used existing Bakelite radios as molds, and the rest is history. The 6-D-030 is a six-tube, AM only AC/DC set. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. He check all of the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. I've written about the AA6 chassis before. They were excellent performers utilizing an internal loop antenna with lots of volume and great sensitivity across the dial. He added a a new power cord, audio cable and aligned the radio. Gary stripped the all-Mahogany cabinet. He refinished using the best toners and fillers. He applied a few coats of lacquer and hand rubbed the set to a gorgeous luster. There is a nice brass accent piece that cascades down the front that also has a pilot light at the top. The original two-stage knobs are present. Gary added a reproduction back, new grille cloth and dial cover. This radio is very affordable, and it's ready to go! 13-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D.
