Zenith 6-D-629 "Boomerang" (1942)


Zenith 6-D-629 "Boomerang" (1942)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith designed a series of "Boomerang" radios, named for the dial design shaped like a boomerang. Philco also had their version of a "Boomerang" radio. With their model it was more about the cabinet design. Designed in wood and Bakelite by Robert Budlong, it was one of the last new radios produced before war production started in April of 1942. This series of radios was named "Consoltone." The 6-S-629 is a six-tube, AM only set. New for 1942, it also had the newly designed "wave magnet" loop antenna. We acquired the radio from the estate of a radio collector. The radio has been restored and we will guarantee the workmanship. The set performs well with good sensitivity and plenty of volume. I added an audio cable so external devices (Bluetooth, iPhone etc.) can be used. The beautiful walnut trimmed with mahogany cabinet was given a lacquer finish. The original knobs are present, and we installed a new reproduction grille cloth, as well as a new reproduction back. A really nice representation of a Zenith "Boomerang" and will give many years of listening pleasure! 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.
