Next to GE - 1970 Chevy, full size Caprice/Impala/BelAir/Biscayne, by the trim visible probably a Caprice or Impala.
Happy Motoring! from Roger in NY

The Zenith stereo looks interesting.  You are gonna be busy...... ;) :)
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

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.
