Zenith 6-S-439 (1940)


Zenith 6-S-439 (1940)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1940, Zenith changed the cabinets and electronics of their radios. Cloth wire was replaced with rubber wire, and electronics were compacted into smaller chassis. The original big round dials of the mid to late '30s were replaced with a much more angular look. Art Deco was fading and the "Machine Age" had arrived. This particular radio used the same chassis and dial with six-, seven-, and eight-tube configurations. This six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set was a good performer. It has surprising volume and fidelity for a table radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. Resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord and audio cable were installed. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet, and refinished using the best grain fillers and paint. He painstakingly painted in the gold stripes and black accent stripes. The radio has a beautiful lacquer finish. We installed a new grille cloth and a couple of the knobs are reproduction and look exactly like the originals. This is a good looking, good performing Zenith. 16"W x 9"H x 9-1/2"D.
