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


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

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Collectors are starting to notice these early 40s table radios, and this Zenith 6D629 is one of the reasons. Called the "boomerang" due to the shape of the dial, it is stylish, attractive and very well made. The tuning mechanism is interesting in that they put the tuner drive in front of the speaker, allowing them to get a larger speaker in a smaller cabinet. The resulting sound is at the top of the class for a radio this size. The near perfect cabinet is slick and gorgeous. Receives well on the "wave magnet" antenna, with screws for external antenna. All high testing tubes, all new caps, resistors as necessary. New dial cover and new grille cloth. The back needed a lot of work from considerable road rash. The knobs are not available so I had to sub some similar ones. One heck of a nice radio taken all together. 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.
