1936 Zenith Black Dial Model 6-V-27 Tombstone Radio For Restoration. Note: This model 6-V-27 is the battery powered (6 volt) version of the 6-S-27 which operated from AC Mains. From my inspection, this radio is electrically unmolested (original factory components). This radio is in need of a complete restoration.Missing are two of the original knobs. Replica knobs are also available for substantially less cost. The cabinet is solid with no major damage.
You will note on picture #5 there are a couple small veneer issues that can be easily repaired. The chassis has some surface rust (as shown). This can be cleaned up with some work. The tuning mechanism will need a belt.
Again, this is a restoration project well worth the effort since these radios are becoming more difficult to find and Black Dial Zeniths are always in demand. I just don't have the time to do this one and battery sets are not my forte'. Packing will be done with the utmost care for safe arrival. Feel free to ask questions if there is anything I missed. My intention is to describe my listing as best as possible.
