This listing is for a great radio.. The radio cabinet is in amazing condition with no real issues I can see. It is complete and the chassis is clean with all tubes checked good+ or replaced. It is 100% restored inside with all new capacitors, some resistors, and a full de-gunking of controls/chassis top. I replaced a bunch of wires also that were brittle.There is one newer screw as seen in the pictures. The dial cover was warped so I put in an exact replacement.
The handle was destroyed so an exact replica was made. This radio belonged to an Army Air Force fly boy back in the 1940s. His patch is still visible on top of the Zenith logo inside the lid. Get this HTF radio now. It is ready to be enjoyed.
I pay for heavy duty boxes, 14 Cubic foot bags of peanuts, 300 count air packs, and 1000ft rolls of strong large bubble bubble wrap. I use tons of materials to ensure you get the radio safely.
A table radio will go into about 20' of bubblewrap and then into a bath of well packed peanuts usually. That is all packed with at least 2 of additional packing between the wrap and box sides. Last is a good 50' of heavy duty tape. Here is what I have uncovered so far that I will be listing.
