What a great Zenith Big Black Dial set, and it play on 110 ac or on 6Volt batteries for all you Preppers. It has all 4 original Zenith wooden Z knobs, a beautiful gold Z dial pointer, and a red sweep second hand for precise tuning. The 18 x 13 x 9 cabinet is original and in very good shape with no veneer chips or cracks.
Ive done nothing to clean it, and it will really POP with some polish. I bought this nice Zenith Black Dial set at a New England Antique Radio Club meet a few years ago. My son says it is time for a new owner to enjoy it. It has a ton of volume, nice tone with its separate tone control, and no hum. An outdoor SW antenna is best to capture the true performance of this set.
The speaker was replaced at some time in the past with a High Fidelity, Full Range Pioneer TS-167 Coaxial two Way Premium speaker. I dont have a good sized 6 volt battery to test the DC operation of the set, but Im sure if that is part of your plan, you do. ELECTRONIC ICONS of the 20th CENTURY from RADIOORPHANAGE!!
