Detrola Id & Cabinet Help

Mark V. Stein in his book Machine Age to Jet Age, Vol. III, pg. 76, calls this a model 1137. I'm looking for a schematic for restoration. That model # is not in Rider's. It has 6 tubes, 42 output and an 80 Rect. and 4 tubes with grid caps, under shields. Also the top cabinet in the photo is in better shape & has the dial frame. Too bad about the missing piece of veneer on the right grill bar. The bottom cabinet has the veneer comming loose at the bottom front base. I'm hopeing to salvage a piece from the bottom cabinet...hope it matches. Look at that awful grill cloth! Did this model have a dial cover? Anyone's 2 cents appreciated.
