Zenith 6-S-229 (1938)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Zenith 6-S-229 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

In 1938, Zenith carried over the big, black dial radios due to high sales. They introduced the "robot dial" sets and the Walton, just to name a few. Sales continued to accelerate, and many of these radios are still popular and collectable to this day. The 6-S-229 was no exception. Zenith produced these midsize tombstone sets, and people loved them. The 6-S-229 is a six-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. This radio came with a "faux" finish which was basically a decal. The styling is there, and it's a really nice performing set. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We installed a safety fuse, polarized power cord, audio input cable and antenna lead. Gary cleaned up the original faux finish and spiffed up the cabinet. These faux finishes are rarely found in this great condition. The radio looks as good as new! The original chassis, speaker and knobs are with the set, and we installed a period-correct grille cloth. If you're looking for one of these particular radios, it would be hard to find one in better condition. 17-1/2"H x 13"W x 9-1/2"D.
