I think Tom should plug it in and see if it still works (hi). 

My grandfather had a nice Zenith set similar to that one.  My brother didn't like the looks of it, took out the guts, put it in the corner of our hobby area, and hung the speaker near the ceiling.  It sure looked better with all the insides showing (and glowing), but probably lost some of the audio quality, with the speaker outside of any enclosure.

Hey, that was kind of a fun little mystery.  My parents probably listened to something like that in their living room .  I do remember getting our first color TV - that was pretty exciting, all 19" of it.  

I gotta say they made radios a lot prettier back then.  It makes me think that one of these simple little QRP rigs might look good in a nice stained wooden box like that.
