Zenith 6-S-322 "Stars and Stripes" (1939)


Zenith 6-S-322 "Stars and Stripes" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
1939 was a year of change for Zenith. Their cabinet designs still had an Art Deco look, with some more modernistic changes. The Waltons were gone, but the Robot Dial chassis were carried over into new models. New and popular models such as the Racetrack, Stars and Stripes and Zephyrs appeared. The 6-S-322 is a six-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. There were three or four table sets with the "Stars and Stripes" bezel, and I feel the model 322 was the nicest, and hardest to find. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We added a safety fuse, audio input, new antenna lead and a new power cord. Steve completely stripped the Walnut and Mahogany cabinet. He highlighted the area around the bezel giving the radio a "two-toned" appearance. The radio ended up with a beautiful "piano" finish. The original knobs were missing, so we added a reproduction set from Renovated Radios. The chassis and speaker are original, and we installed a period-correct grille cloth. This radio is a fantastic performer across the dial. The model 322 is pretty rare and highly collectable. Make it yours today! 20"W x 11-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.
