In 1923 the name was changed to Zenith Radio Company. The name came from their call sign 9ZN. In 1939 they produced their first TV sets. The 1960s Zenith patented the remote control. Due to foreign competition Zenith filed for Bankruptcy in 1999.Zenith always made quality radios and this one is no exception. The radio is 17 inches wide, 11 inches wide, and has Black leather over wood cabinet. The handle is an early plastic. There are no rips, tears, or breaks to the cabinet or handle. There are a few scuff/wear marks from age and use And there is one small factory defect.
The Wave Magnet antenna is attached with no defects. The radio dial plastic is in like new condition along with the trim pieces.
All the buttons and dials and there, in great condition and function properly. The speaker sound has no crackling and has a nice tone to it.The radio was re strung. The front locking Brass cover hasp locks properly and has only normal wear from age. The antenna works properly and is 50 inches fully erect. The inside where the tubes are is very clean. The battery hookup is there but there are no batteries or case. The accessories for hooking the antenna up are there along with the scamatics, owners manual, instruction manual, and a brochure about how to use the short wave.
A new vintage style power cord was also installed. The radio was tested and worked on all bands (Please See Video). The overall condition of this vintage piece is excellent considering its age and usage.
This is a very high quality radio. Remember At Zenith The Quality Goes In Before The Name Goes On.
