Zenith 6-S-528 (1941)
Zenith 6-S-528 (1941)
Zenith cranked out a lot of radios with this basic chassis in them. For some reason, the smaller 6S527 is much more common. This one had a previous refinish job that was a little less than perfect, but I didn't want to strip it and lose the woodgrain pinstripes, so I doctored it up the best I could and put eight coats of lacquer over it. The result is a nice slick finish and a fairly good looking and good performing radio. The tint is a little darker at the bottom front, but not as bad as the camera made it look. The speaker has one patch by a previous servicer, but sounds very good. A full set of high testing tubes, all new caps, including stuffing the electrolytic, resistors as necessary and replaced most of the rubber wiring. After alignment, it receives Broadcast fairly well on the internal "wave magnet" antenna. There are screw terminals for shortwave and more distant stations. Remember the old Zenith slogan? "The quality goes in before the name goes on." 16"W x 8-3/4"H x 7-1/2"D.  $349.00. (1680099)
