Zenith Royal 7000 Trans-Oceanic (1969)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 7000 Trans-Oceanic (1969)

All 7000's play great FM. About 10 percent of the 7000's play superior FM. This is due to the radio not played that much and you can tell by the alignment being spot on. For some reason I have been getting Superior FM players the last three months. Additionally, the original 7000 picks up AM and Shortwave stations better than the 7000-1 and D7000Y. The case is in excellent condition. The top has some small blemishes on the top. The rest looks like new. The sides are straight. The battery box is pristine. 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. See the pic below of the extracted capacitors. It comes with an original log book and power cord. Also this one had the ear plugs and name plate for the inside cover. The lights work great. Just a rare great looking and great playing radio. 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. $425.00. (0040379)

 

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1972)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1972)

This is a nice looking and great playing FM/AM Shortwave Zenith Transoceanic 7000-1. If you were to buy this on eBay, it would cost you $200 to $350 with taxes and shipping and then 50% of the time it would not play right and you would send it to me. So, this is a bargain at $345. The handle and the top is 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 an original cord. It plays like no other on FM. This plays Shortwave at night very well. 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. $345.00. (0040378)

 

Zenith Royal D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

NEW!

Zenith Royal D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

This is another dynamite playing Zenith Transoceanic D7000Y with a very nice case. The top and handle have some small blemishes but over all good. The sides are in excellent shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob and volume control. Battery box is pristine. It comes with an original cord, logbook. There was very little alignment which usually means it was not played a lot and therefore the FM is in the top 10%. AM/Shortwave are very good for these radios. This one has the dial in weather band. 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 aligned 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. $445.00. (0040377)

 

Zenith 7000 Trans-Oceanic (1969)

Zenith 7000 Trans-Oceanic (1969)

A almost pristine Zenith Transoceanic 7000 made in 1969 (one of the first 7000's made). The handle and the top are in excellent condition. The sides are in great shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is pristine. The top looks superb. It comes with a original log book and power cord. It plays like no other on FM. The 7000 for some reason picks up stations better on AM and shortwave than the 7000-1 or D7000Y. There was very little alignment need on this radio which probably means it was not played a lot. 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 aligned 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. $425.00. (0040376)

 

Zenith Royal 1000D Trans-Oceanic (1959)

Zenith Royal 1000D Trans-Oceanic (1959)

This is a really nice playing Zenith 1000D. It is the first 1000D made because it has the plastic battery box mounted on the back and has the lettering Genuine Leather on the inside front lid. 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 a 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 but it does have a blemish on the outside of the case. It also comes with an external wavemagnet antenna which you can see attached to the upper back. The antenna is straight and true. The battery box is clean. It comes with a log book as well. A great price for a great radio. You can also read some of my feedback on restorations at eBay under Hammer39. $295.00. (0040373)

 

Zenith 5F-233 AM/SW (1938)

Zenith 5F-233 AM/SW (1938)

This is a rare Zenith 5F-233 battery radio that looks like a 5S-218 cube. I have only seen two of them and I collected Zenith radios for 22 years. The case, knobs and speaker are the same as the AC playing 5S-218 and are in excellent condition. I don't work on battery radios and therefore this has not been restored. So I am selling it for a good price especially for a Zenith Collector. $295.00. (0040367)

 

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

This is just a beautiful looking cathedral radio made by Stewart-Warner in 1932. It was purchased in Wilmington, North Carolina some 15 years ago. Been with me ever since. The ornate cabinet is in superb original condition. It is a large six-tube cathedral with an 8-inch speaker that looks like new (see pic). The chassis is as clean as you get with an 80 year old radio and all six tubes were good. I replaced all the electrolytic and wax capacitors, as well as most of the resistors which were out of tolerance. It plays loud and clear. The power cord, antenna wire and ground wire are all new. It was cleaned, oiled and aligned for peak performance. The speaker grille cloth and knobs are original and in excellent condition. Six month warranty. 19"H x 14"W x 12"D. $495.00. (0040354)

 

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

This is a Music Box AM radio by Electrohome, made in Canada in 1946. It is a five-tube All American miniature tube radio that is a great AM player with a 10 ft cord. I restored it with all new electrolyte and wax cap replacements and good tubes. It also has a new power cord. To turn it on, you just open the box lid. The wooden box is in great condition. The chassis and speaker look like new. The dial plastic has been repaired but can be seen easily in that little dial window. $275.00. (0040345)

 

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)
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.
