Zenith Royal 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1965)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1965)

This is a dynamite playing Zenith Trans-Oceanic 3000-1 with an almost pristine case. There is one small blemish on the front left side of the top door. The sides have no creases. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box and Logbook are pristine. It plays like no other on AM/Shortwave and very good for a 3000 on FM. Very little alignment was needed. The radio is not just serviced which replaces some electrolytic capacitors. It is restored with all new electrolytic capacitors which will allow the radio to play another 40 years like new. You can buy an AC adapter on eBay but I have found some of them interfere with AM and some Shortwave. Radio Shack had an excellent one but they are out of business. It is actually better for the radio if you put batteries in it to play. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days.

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

NEW!

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

This is another dynamite playing Zenith Transoceanic D7000Y with an very nice case. The handle and the top is in excellent condition. The sides are in really good shape but have some wrinkling. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is pristine. It comes with an original cord, logbook, battery sleeves and earpiece. It plays like no other on FM. AM/Shortwave are good for these radios. A nice looking radio and this one has the dial in weather band. The radio is not just serviced which replaces some electrolytic capacitors. It is restored with all new electrolytic capacitors which will allow the radio to play another 40 years like new. It is also cleaned, lubed and each band is align for peak performance. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. Read some of my feedback on restoration on eBay under Hammer39.  $295.00. (0040343)

 

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

NEW!

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

This is another fine example of a R7000-2. A superb radio and a rare radio; of the 75,000 R7000-series radios made, only 25,000 were R7000-2's. It is not just serviced but is restored to original playing condition that will last another 40 years. I replaced all 22 electrolytic capacitors by taking the radio completely apart and aligning each band for peak performance. I also clean the pots and bandswitch as well as lube it. In this way the radio is back to the original values and plays like new. The -2 is the last of the R-7000 series and is sought after because it has large gears for its tuner. They do not break. Whereas the R7000 and R7000-1 have a small gear on the tuner and they tend to break. The other problem with these radios, that no one ever talks about, is the bandswitch clicking mechanism. Half of the radios today do not have that working. This one's bandswitch clicker works well. The antenna is straight and true. The battery box is pristine. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. Read some of my feedback on eBay under Hammer39.  $475.00. (0040342)

 

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

This is another dynamite playing Zenith Trans-Oceanic D7000Y with a very nice case. I doubt if this radio was used much, as the alignment on each band was right on and needed no correction. The top has a few small spots on it. The sides are in really good shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is in good condition with some discoloration on cardboard in one spot. It comes with a log book and also an original cord. It plays like no other on FM. AM/Shortwave is actually a little better than most. A nice looking radio and this one has the dial in weather band. The radio is not just serviced which replaces some electrolytic capacitors. It is restored with all new electrolytic capacitors which will allow the radio to play another 40 years like new. It is also cleaned, lubed and each band is align for peak performance. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. Read some of my feedback on restoration on eBay under Hammer39.  $325.00. (0040339)

 

Arvin 732 (1941)

Arvin 732 (1941)

Nice decorative six-tube Arvin and plays like a six-tube radio should. Cabinet is in excellent shape. It has a 1/4 wood back and the chassis is clean. It has been restored with all new electrolytic capacitors and all the wax capacitors have been replaced as well.  $155.00. (0040320)

 

Windham 5D2 (late 1940s)

Windham 5D2 (late 1940s)

This is an all American Five-tube Windam radio which plays rather well. As you see from the pictures I have restored the electronics and aligned the radio for peak performance. The chassis and 5" speaker are in excellent condition. The case has a repaired 2" crack on the back left side as you are looking at the radio. Other than that the Bakelite is in great condition. A nice playing radio for a great price.  $75.00. (0040316)

 

National Union 571 (1947)

National Union 571 (1947)

This is a five-tube National Union radio made by National Union Radio Corp, Newark NJ in 1947. It is a pretty little radio with a great wood case and plays extremely well. It has been part of my collection. It has been restored with all new caps, good tubes and aligned for peak performance. The wood cabinet is in excellent shape.  $145.00. (0040309)
Back to Top
My goal is to give you a great radio that you can play for years to come.  If the radio has any flaws or parts that are not original, you will know it before the purchase.  All the radios I sell have been electronically restored which means the following:

1) All tubes/transistors are checked and replaced when necessary.
2) All electrolytic and wax capacitors are replaced.
3) Resistors are checked and replaced if they are out of tolerance.
4) If the speaker cone is torn beyond a simple fix, it is sent out and replaced completely.
5) The tuning capacitor, volum , bass/treble controls are cleaned and lubricated.
6) The radio is aligned and tuned to play at peak performance.
7) Once the radio is restored, it is tested for three hours.
8) Before it is shipped, it is re-checked and tested, and will be played and listened to for three more hours.
9) The radio is professionally packed and shipped by USPS Priority 2 to 3 day service. It will be insured for sale value.

If the radio does not play when it arrives, return it for a full refund.  If you are not satisfied with the radio when it arrives send it back for a refund less shipping costs.  The radio is also guaranteed for six months assuming it is treated well.
