Zenith 6-D-317 (1938/1939)
(wood tube table radio)

Zenith 6-D-317 (1938/1939)

Among the most unique and attractive table radios ever made you would have to count this Zenith 6D317 World's Fair Glass Rod table radio. Zenith made this for the 1938 San Francisco World's fair, and I don't think a great many of them have survived. My buddy John suggested I illuminate the glass rods in a red, white, and blue theme, so I did. I think it's really cool, but if you don't like it there is a switch on the back to turn them off. A very nice finish with 20 coats of lacquer and three sanding operations. A few minor shortcomings from 90 years of service. My usual professional chassis restoration. Original knobs and buttons are a bit less than perfect, but very presentable. I had to make the back cover. This is a very unique and highly sought after radio, and not one you see every day. The lighted rods are amazing, and the performance is very good. I have a ton of work in it and I hope you will think it is worth the price. Requires an external antenna. 14"W x 8"H x 8"D.  $1,099.00.
