Zenith Royal 500 "Owl Eye" (1958)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 500 "Owl Eye" (1958)

This is an exceptional restored Royal 500 AM Long Distance Transistor radio. The cabinet is in superb condition. This comes with the original case and the earpiece that fits on your ear and plugs into the phone jack. This one picks up a lot of AM frequencies and plays superbly. It has eight transistors mounted in transistor sockets. I replaced all electrolyte and wax capacitors. It's been cleaned and aligned to play like new. The battery box clean. It requires four "AA" batteries. If you have one of these and wish me to restore it, email me. $185.00. (0040408)

 

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1971)

NEW!

Zenith Royal 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1971)

This is a nice looking and great playing FM/AM Zenith Transoceanic 7000-1. All 7000's play great FM but only a few are superior AM/Shortwave players. This is one of them. If you were to buy this on eBay it would cost you $200 to $400 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 $365. The handle and the top have some light scratches. The sides are in really good shape. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box is pristine. It comes an reproduction cord and plastic battery holders. It is restored with all new electrolytic capacitors. 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. $365.00. (0040407)

 

Zenith C725L (1963-64)

NEW!

Zenith C725L (1963-64)

I believe this is one of the last tube radios made by Zenith as it has a Zenith Trans-Oceanic 3000 speaker in it. You get the sound of a 3000 with a tube radio which actually sounds better on FM. Its chassis number is 7C06. With seven tubes and a rectifier and a 3000 speaker, it just plays beautifully. I replace the selenium rectifier, all the electrolyte and wax capacitors (see pic). It was cleaned lubed and aligned. As you can see the plastic cabinet is in very good condition to almost pristine condition. The power cord had an on/off switch on it that I have not seen in years which was probably put in for safety. The front on/off switch works fine. 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. $245.00. (0040406)

 

Zenith Royal 1000-D Trans-Oceanic (1959)

Zenith Royal 1000-D Trans-Oceanic (1959)

This is a really nice playing as well as good looking Zenith 1000D. Exceptional pickup on AM and Shortwave. The "D" stands for an added LW band which today you only hear Morse code from an airport. I have replaced all the electrolytic and wax caps. It has been aligned for peak performance. The case inside and out is exceptional. Also comes with a logbook and advertisement. The antenna is straight and true. It comes with a very good battery box and external wave magnet antenna. A great price for a great radio. You can also read some of my feedback on restorations at eBay under Hammer39. $295.00. (0040403)

Zenith A-600 Leather Trans-Oceanic (1958)

Zenith A-600 Leather Trans-Oceanic (1958)

This is an excellent playing and good looking Zenith Trans-Oceanic. It's the last one made just prior to the B-600. The case is in awesome condition with a couple of small dings. The dial cover is excellent. All the electrolyte and wax caps have been replaced and the radio has been aligned for peak performance. If small parts are missing I replace them with originals. All tubes are good and all parts are authentic. It is an awesome AM and Short-wave player and it comes at a very reasonable price. Great price for an nice looking and great playing radio. $295.00.

Yaesu FRG-7 Shortwave Receiver (1977)

Yaesu FRG-7 Shortwave Receiver (1977)

I am not a Ham radio operator, but I put a long antenna on it and it did pick up quite a few Shortwave stations. The lights work and it has a battery pack in it for battery operation. It has all it parts and is a clean radio. It comes with the instruction manual. I only clean/lubed the pots and gears but did not restore it. So I can only guarantee it will turn on (lights include) and pick up shortwave stations when it arrives. You can only return it if the above does not happen. These run close to $1000 in Japan. You see them untested for $325 to $500 and tested above $500. So my price is a bargain for one that works. $345.00. (0040387)

 

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)

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.
