OK its time for another of our now Famous "Group Pictures". This time the radios choosen are much rarer than plain old Walton Radios.
These radios are what Zenith called "Boat and Trailer Radios"  They were sold in 1937. They were 6 volt powered by an Auto type
battery. So take a look at the radio and its matching speaker. Then think about... Just what sort of "Boat" or "Trailer" one would
need to have such a radio on board? .... Ah... Yacht... is more like it... Or a Rather Large type "Camping Trailer" perhaps? Well in 1937
There were I imagine not too many of those floating about? ... Total production of this Zenith model 6B107 radio and matching speaker
was 1000 Units as per the Bryant and Cones book. Where the Walton radios production was in the 35,000 or so range. The revered
Zenith Stratosphere 1000Z had a production total of 350 units. So this lowly "Boat and Trailer" radio only had three times that number
produced. Today folks you see before your eyes.. FOUR... yes FOUR of those radios complete with their speakers.

Guaranteed the last time that FOUR of these radios were together in one place WAS in 1937 ON the assembly line at Zenith.

So I only ask One Question... if you happen to Have or Have Seen one of these radios elsewhere... please send us an email... At a guess I think
there are probably less than 50 of these out of the total 1000 production that still survive in collections throughout the world. At this time
I only know of two others.. other than these FOUR radios....

The radio on the right I am keeping for my own collection. The unusual light maple Z-knobs are found on the
Ivory Zenith radios. I am missing one so if you have one in your knob box please an email.


Our Baby Stratosphere just had a "Litter of Walton's"
