Zenith 6-D-615 Consol-Tone "Darth Vader" (1942)


Zenith 6-D-615 Consol-Tone "Darth Vader" (1942)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This 1942 Zenith model 6-D-615 is one of the classic pre-WWII Zenith designs before the company converted to wartime production. This set was designed by Robert Budlong, Zenith's most prolific radio designer during this period. This Budlong design is known to collectors as the "Darth Vader" radio for obvious reasons to anyone who has seen Star Wars. It has an undamaged Bakelite case with four push buttons for Alto, Treble, Bass, and Voice. A boomerang-styled dial, gold dial pointer and reproduction butterscotch knobs give this set instant visual appeal. The plastic dial cover is a perfect new replacement. There are no cosmetic issues like cracks, chips or hairline cracks. This six-tube chassis has been checked, and the set plays good picking up all my local AM stations during the day, and many distant stations at night with an internal loop antenna. The radio has twin dial lamps, and a perfect brand new replacement back. "Zenith! The Quality Goes In Before the Name Goes On!" About 12"W x 8"H x 7"D.
