Zenith 9-S-262 ( 1938 )

Under Restoration!

    This radio was found in a barn in Milltown, Indiana.  When I started restoring this set, the condition was terrible. Grill cloth rotted and torn, original finish spotty and pretty much gone, no knobs , dial glass, or speaker cover. The effects of moisture had taken its toll over the years , the front dial plate was rusted, and the original letters were gone. The speaker cone was so brittle the it simple crumbled away. The chassis had been worked on several times long ago, with many jack-legged repairs and missing parts.

    As seen in the above photo, I have already replaced the grill cloth, and cleaned up the finish. Tracking down the missing parts for this radio has been the most challenging so far. More to come as the work progresses.
