NEW!

ON SALE
until
November 16

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

This is another superb playing and very nice looking Zenith Trans-Oceanic. The handle and the top are in excellent condition. The sides are in really pristine shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is pristine. It comes with a log book, an original sales brochure and also an original cord. It plays like no other on FM. Shortwave is actually plays better than most 7000's. I put a picture of the capacitors that were replaced. 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.  Was $345.00, now $295.00. (0040332)

 

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic

NEW!

ON SALE
until
November 16

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic

This is a superb radio and a rare radio in that only 25,000 R7000-2's were made. It is not just serviced but is restored to original playing condition that will last another 40 yrs. I replace all 22 electrolytic capacitors and align 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 cabinet is in great condition. A few light scratches on the top and around the dial knob. The LW band is weak but it really only picks up Morse code from a nearby airport. The rest of the bands play like they should. It's an excellent radio. 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. The other problem with these radios is the bandswitch clicking mechanism. This one's bandswitch clicker works well. The power cord is a reproduction and it does come with the log book as well. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. Read some of my feedback on eBay under Hammer39.  Was $435.00, now $395.00. (0040331)

 

Zenith Royal 1000-D Trans-Oceanic

NEW!

ON SALE
until
November 16

Zenith Royal 1000-D Trans-Oceanic

This is a really nice playing Zenith T-O. Exceptional pickup on AM and Shortwave. The "D" stands for an added LW band which today you only hear Morse code of a NDB (Non-Directional Beacon) from an airport. I have replaced all the electrolytic and wax caps (seen in the last picture). It has been aligned for peak performance. The case inside and out is exceptional. No battery leakage and the front looks superior. It does have a blemish on the outside of the case on the front right and the antenna is missing two small tabs but is not cracked or repaired. The antenna is straight and true. It comes with a pristine battery box and external Wavemagnet antenna. A great price for a great radio. You can also read some of my feedback on restorations at eBay under Hammer39.   Was $195.00, now $175.00. (0040330)

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic

This is another dynamite playing Zenith Trans-Oceanic with a very nice case. The handle and the top are in excellent condition. The sides are in really good shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is pristine. 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 7000's. I put a picture of the capacitors that were replaced. 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. After it is shipped and playing at your doorstep, they never come back to me. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. This is less handling and so far all customers' radios have shipped back without incident except for one.

Stewart-Warner R-1461 AM/SW (1936)

Stewart-Warner R-1461 AM/SW (1936)

This is a real nice Stewart Warner AM/Shortwave table radio made in 1936. All the electrolytic and wax capacitors have been replaced and it has been aligned to peak performance. It also has a new power cord. I always call these table radios as a console in a box. It is basically a floor model console that they fit into a large table radio. It has seven tubes and a large 8" speaker. It is a heavy radio. I will ship the speaker separately so it does not destroy the radio en route. 19"W x 12"H x 11"D.  $395.00. (0040324)

 

Zenith Y600 Trans-Oceanic Brown Leather (1957)

Zenith Y600 Trans-Oceanic Brown Leather (1957)

This is a great playing brown leather Zenith Trans-Oceanic. I replaced the 1L6 and 50A1 tubes with solid state. These solid state tubes should last you your lifetime as well as give you superb performance. D-cell battery hookup was added to make the light functional. The case has been used but is in good condition. The power cord has a replacement end as these radios' power cord ends are starting to fail from bending. This radio also comes with all the paperwork and operating guide.  $345.00. (0040321)

 

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.
