Zenith H511 Bakelite (five peanut tubes) Early to mid 1950s. Very collectibly desirable.
One of the most attractively styled Zenith radios is named "the racetrack" by collectors.
Here is the tube line up: 12BE6 12BA6 12AT6 50L6GT and 35W4.
This particular radio required three tube replacements, upgraded electrolytic and paper capacitors, one new resistor, and a new power cord . The original light bulb still worked. The light is behind the Zenith "crest" at the middle, top.
Here is another view of this radio:
