Hello! I am new on this page and I was wondering if someone could help me. I have a Zenith Radio from (I think) 1950. I am trying to look up more information about this model but when I have tried Googling the serial number and the model number I am coming up empty.

The model number is Z402Y and the serial number is Z-360056.

If anyone has any information please let me know.

Thank you!

Here is the Radiomuseum entry for your radio

https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/zenith_z4 ... _z_41.html

It is a cute little 4 tube battery operated portable. Batteries are not readily available, so many collectors have managed to build battery packs for radios like it.
Usually a number of 9 volt and AA sizes to form the required voltages. Due to this, they aren't a popular collectible, but many like them.

Welcome to the Antique Radio Forums! I'm sure others will add to the conversation :D

Hi MarilynG, welcome to the forums!

When I google Zenith Z402Y, I get a half dozen hits including as the first hit the RadioMuseum page that Steve cited above. Unless google likes me better than you (which I doubt), I'm sure you saw the same results. It makes me think that maybe those webpages did not answer your questions.

What kind of information are you looking for specifically, or what questions would you like answered?
