    I saved this old Zenith radio from salavage. Why do people throw away such nice items? I got it home and changed the cord, plugged it in and waited for the smoke. Then came the hum and finally found a local station. The speaker sounds good and has 3 adjustments. Could use some help on the model number.

      Your radio is a 1938 model 6-S-254......a very common model for '38

      I have the same radio. Replace the caps and it will be a good performer.

      My grandmother has one sitting in her garage. I think the perfect gift for Christmas would be to get it repaired for her but I don't even know where to begin to look for parts or repair. Please help?

      Could I get an est. on how much this is worth, my dad just got one at auction and cleaned it up and it is beautiful.

      This was for the original OP .... One in better condition sold for $45.00 at the 2012 Kutztown Pa Spring antique radio show . Even then it needed a lot of work to bring it back to it's former glory

      If your was in excellent original or restored condition ( which it is NOT !) it would bring much more.
