The big black dial is one of the more popular styles of Zeniths out there and this one is sure to not disappoint! The following things were done to this radio. All capacitors were replaced with modern day equivalents.
All tubes checked and replaced if found weak or bad. A lot of attention to detail was taken with the electronic restoration of this radio and is especially shown by the careful repacking of the electrolytic cans with modern day capacitors. The radio plays strong and clear, it is picking up 10 stations on short wave and about 8 stations on A. In my area and thats without an antenna!!! All of the knobs and switches turn easily as they should.
The wood case is in excellent condition with the exception of a small crack on the top rounded area and a bump on the left side (see pic). What I believe to be the original grill cloth is present and in excellent condition as well. Over all this radio would make a wonderful addition to any collection for listening, display, or both!! If you have any questions or would like further pictures please don't hesitate to contact me.
