I obtained about 80 tube radios from an estate sale. I will be listing these over the next few weeks so please see my other listings. THIS ONE HAS A FANTASTIC LOOK TO IT! At the beginning of this listing this is the only one of these models for sale on this site. This listing is for a ZENITH model 5G01.Dark brown bakelite with gold, cream, and chrome highlights. Condition: ALL THREE ORIGINAL BAKELITE KNOBS ARE STILL THERE. All knobs rotate as they should.
The cord will need replaced so it wasnt plugged in to be tested for sound. The grill is in great shape WITH NO DINGS!The body is in good shape with one chip on the back. The wood back is still there and in decent shape. The metal around the handle has signs of age and the handle will not lay flat. The handle is still usable and nice and strong. The inside could use some cleaning but looks like it has all the tubes. These radios are highly collectable and are getting harder to find online. It will be protected well and insured. Let me know if you have questions.
