The price is a little too steep for me. What a beautiful looking radio! Wow!

Beautiful set but it looks like both speakers have been replaced with modern speakers placed inside the old original speaker frame?

For the price being asked I think something major like that should be disclosed (if I am correct).

I believe this is the correct schematic for the Zenith 2035 chassis. It's a superhet.

I only went by what he posted in his auction;

THE REAR ZENITH NAMEPLATE SAYS MODEL 602

Yes, Zenith screwed up with certain model numbers.

They added a 2 on the Earlier AC sets to indicate 25 cycle operation. Hence model 60 became model 602. 62 became 622.
Then used the numbers again for the 1933 models.
