Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

NEW!

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

This is another great example of a R7000-2. Only 25,000 R7000-2's were made. 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 which tends to break. The other problem with these radios is the bandswitch clicking mechanism. Half of the radios today do not have that working. This one's bandswitch clicker works well. It is not just serviced, but is restored to original playing condition that will last another 40 years. I replace 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 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.  $465.00. (0040348)

 

Zenith R-7000 Trans-Oceanic (1979)

ON SALE
until
August 6

Zenith R-7000 Trans-Oceanic (1979)

I bought this radio for parts and when I opened it up the dial belt was not working. I replaced the dial belt and it worked just fine. I have replaced all 22 electrolyte capacitors. The pots, switches and gears have been cleaned and lubed. I also aligned the radio for peak performance so it plays just like new. The case on it is in superb shape. It is an R-7000 built in 1979 and only 25,000 were made. The other problem with these radios is the bandswitch clicking mechanism. This one's bandswitch clicker does not work just like half of these radios. But most customers don't find it that big a deal since you can put the band on the indicator on the front. It comes with the original power cord and log chart. 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. I bought this for a great price and therefore offering it for a lower price than you will find for a restored R-7000.  Was $345.00, now $295.00. (0040346)

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.
