Anyone have a model number? Never have seen one myself...something looks a bit strange about it, in addition to it's "half-height" Very Happy

Can't tell you the model or year exactly but it is early thirties, maybe '32, and the cabinet is the way it should be, a table or mantle set, not a tombstone. A neighbor had one just like that. However the perf board back has to go: not original, and guaranteed to overheat. Those little holes aren't enough. The original probably didn't have a back but one could be made from 1/8" masonite with proper cutouts for adequate ventilation. And the bottom needs a screen to keep fingers out of the works!

That is a 1933 Zenith 705. It is a quite common table radio for that year, still a good performer! I have one on my nightstand that I use on a daily basis.
$399 is 2-3X too much for this one, IMHO.
Cheers!
