Zenith 6-S-532 (1941)


Zenith 6-S-532 (1941)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
If you're looking to get into a black dial Zenith but don't have the space or the cash for one of the big ones this could be your radio! The early 40s brought many innovations to the Zenith product line. Three of them that did not stand the test of time were artificial photographic veneers, rubber wiring and plastic knobs. The photo finish on this one is not quite as bad as it looks on the photograph of the front, but somewhat less than perfect. The volume knob is a reproduction, I replaced all of the brittle rubber wiring. I touched up a previous cabinet refinish and gave it twelve coats of nitrocellulose lacquer giving it a nice, slick finish. A full set of good tubes, capacitors and resistors. Good receiver sensitivity. Picks up local stations on the internal antenna, with connections for an external antenna to get more distant stations. The speaker had a couple of well done patches by a previous restorer and sounds very good. I damaged my nice custom paint a little trying to get the bass and treble switches on the escutcheon. I had to make the back cover and replace the grille cloth. Still, all told, a pretty nice example of the Zenith 6-S-532. 17"W x 10"H x 11"D.
