Title: Craig's list in Grand Rapids area
Post by: Bill on April 14, 2019, 02:17:41 PM
Here are a few things I noticed in the Grand Rapids Michigan area.  Notice the car lurking next to the GE console.  ;) :)

I know there is a lot to look at, but everyone must be posting items for sale at once.  ;)

Next to GE - 1970 Chevy, full size Caprice/Impala/BelAir/Biscayne, by the trim visible probably a Caprice or Impala.

Yes, it's a nice looking Chevy, and I wish we could see more of it. :)

I believe this is the same Zenith I spotted, and posted on Sightings, about a month ago for $1300.00.  I guess they had a reality check, and are getting closer.  No cigar yet, but closer.  ::)

I forgot.  The Zenith has a 12 tube tuner/preamp, but only a single ended amp with 6BQ5's.  I would have thought this being a higher end model that it would have been PP in the amp.

That amp may be SE but those tubes are driven harder than in the other Zenith amps, that I have two of. That particular model is maybe one step below TOTL.

The only amp with higher output ratings that year was a PP6BQ5 chassis 7K31. I have never seen one.

I would personally go for that $50 Philco, even though its not tubes.
