Looks like the same 11 tube chassis

Value is low.. Maybe $40.00 locally as is.

I think it's a 1940 model 6437, and I count 13 tubes in it.

Unfortunately these wide pre-war consoles have very little interest from collectors and on a good day the value is pretty low. In the midwest at a big radio show I doubt anyone would give $25 for it. On the east or west coast, maybe $35-$40 tops.

They work well, you can expect to find a mile of rubber wire that will need to be replaced along with the usual capacitors. But this is a model that if you went to all the trouble to restore it properly, you would never be able to sell for enough to get back what you spent.

The Tenite dial escutcheon has shrunk considerably. That's not good.
