The model number on this wonderful radio is K731 & it was produced in the 1963 era. The maple wood cabinet is all original & in pristine condition with no cracks or scratches but this is one (1) extremely small ding on the top front edge which in no way shape or form detracts from the beauty of this radio. The cabinet on this radio has been cleaned & polished which still retains it's original sheen or shine & the finish looks fantastic. This Zenith K731 came in two different styles "danish style" with legs & this model here "early american style" & they either were made with walnut or maple veneer.
This radio has been well taken care of & for a 63yr old radio it looks spectacular. I have taken many pictures so you may get a good view at this gorgeous looking & working radio. There is no dial light as this radio did not come equipped with one.The 3 control knobs are original & in fantastic condition. The speaker grill cloth is original & in excellent condition. The original back panel is present & in excellent condition. The electric cord is in fantastic condition. The chassis is in great condition & it is a 7 tube unit with 3 controls & 1 switch. This is a vintage radio & must be handled & cared for & treated in this manor & not like a modern day boombox. Tube radio technology "unlike modern day solid state radios" can have interference/noise in the sound quality, caused by kitchen appliances, computer monitors, flat screen TV'S, florescent lights, washing machines, high power wires/lines above your home, etc... So where you position/place this radio in your home can make a huge difference & the direction/position it is set in. A lot of tube radios are directional meaning you "may" have to turn the radio one way or the other to receive the best reception. Tube radios usually take 30 to 45 seconds after they have been turned/powered ON before they start playing as the tubes have to warm up.
The size of this fabulous & wonderful gem is 15-1/2" long 8-1/4" wide & 10 high. I package very well for a safe arrival. If you have any questions, please ask & I will promptly answer & as best as I can. Please ask questions before the end of the sale & not after.Thanks for looking I greatly appreciate it.
