|In 1941, Zenith produced five or six models of the "boomerang" radio, named for the shape of the dial. Designed in wood and Bakelite by Robert Budlong, it was one of the last new radios produced before war production started in April of 1942. The other one was the Trans-Oceanic multi-band radio. The 6-S-629 is a six-tube, AM only set. New for 1942, it also had the newly designed "wave magnet" loop antenna. We did our usual replacement of all capacitors, checked all the tubes and resistors, replacing where needed. An audio cable was added for an external player like an Mp3 or iPod. Gary stripped the radio, and refinished using the best products available. The beautiful walnut trimmed with mahogany cabinet was given a lacquer finished, and then hand-rubbed to a gorgeous luster. The radio has its original butterscotch knobs, a crystal clear Palmquist dial cover, and fitted with a period-correct reproduction grille cloth. This collectable radio is a strong performer, and is priced to sell! 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.|
