This one has an incredibly complex motorized tuning and preset set up. Please note that there are two modifications to my finished product. The original backing behind the dial glass was brown. I changed it to frosted white. The grille cloth is Zenith repro and is as close to the original as I could get. Also, the original magic eye tube was a 6x6, twin vane. None are available any more. I replaced it with a European 6E5gt which worked great with no modification. This radio was bought and used in Toronto, Ontario. It still had the Toronto and New York presets on it.
