Zenith 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1962)

NEW!

Zenith 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1962)

This is a dynamite playing Zenith Trans-Oceanic 3000-1 with a very nice case. There are a few small blemishes around the radio but nothing significant. Inside the case a little wear around the dial knob. Battery box and Logbook are in good usable condition. 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. 1 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. A great price for a great radio.  $195.00. (0040359)

 

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

NEW!

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

Zenith Transoceanic 7000's are mainly bought for their FM. They pick up more stations then most radios and the quality of sound is superb. About one radio out of 10 that I receive do not pick up AM or Shortwave and unless it is a bad transistor, it is never going to play those again. But I have had quite a few 7000's that just play superb FM that I use in the house or give away. So this radio only plays superb FM and the weather band. The light switch works. The battery box is in good usable shape with some discoloration. It comes with a reproduction cord. No log book or battery sleeves. 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 align for peak performance. One year warranty. The radio will be shipped back to you by USPS Priority which only takes 2-3 days. A good price for a great playing radio anywhere in the house or at the beach.  $100.00.

Zenith 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1965)

NEW!

Zenith 3000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1965)

This is a truly exceptional Zenith Trans-Oceanic 3000-1. It plays as good as it gets with these radios. Superb AM and shortwave and great FM. On the appearance side I put it at a 9.7 or so out of a perfect 10. It comes with an almost new condition battery box and log book. It can be hooked up to an AC adapter that you can purchase on eBay or you can play it with nine "D"-cell batteries. The ninth battery is for the lights. It was purchased at an estate sale of a radio collector. All the electrolyte capacitors and wax capacitors were replaced. I also tuned each band to perfection. If you were to by this type of radio, you most likely would purchase my restoration service that I advertise on eBay under Hammer39. See my feedback. With shipping that could cost you $200 or more round trip to me. You get a restored radio, one of the best I have seen, for a pretty good price. One year warranty on the radio.   $275.00.

Zenith 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1971)

NEW!

Zenith 7000-1 Trans-Oceanic (1971)

This is a very nice 7000-1 both in appearance and in playing ability. Most of the 7000's play great FM. This is one of them. It also picks up AM and Shortwave extremely well. In appearance I would rank it about a 9.3 out of a possible 10. It comes with an original power cord, battery plastic holders and Log book. It was purchased at an estate sale of a radio collector. All the electrolyte capacitors and all four of the wax capacitors (see pics) were replaced. I also tuned each band to perfection. There was very little tuning done as it was right on. Usually that means it was not used a lot. If you were to buy this type of radio, you most likely would purchase my restoration service that I advertise on eBay. With shipping that could cost you $200 or more round trip to me. So you get a restored radio, one of the best I have seen for a pretty good price. One year warranty on the radio. See my feed back on eBay under Hammer39  $275.00. (0040356)

 

Zenith 6-S-239 Chairside (1938)

NEW!

Zenith 6-S-239 Chairside (1938)

This is a great playing Zenith chairside radio built in 1938. I bought this at a radio collector's estate sale. It has three bands: AM and two bands of shortwave. This radio sold on the Radio Attic some years ago for $825. But this one does not have the top speaker cover and the speaker, although new, is not the original. Nevertheless it is a nice looking chairside for less than half price and it plays great. The radio was restored by the owner with all new capacitors. I checked out the work and aligned the radio for peak performance. Shortwave is just superb on this one.  $395.00. (0040355)

NEW!

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)

 

Crosley 158 "Septet" Cathedral (1933)

Crosley 158 "Septet" Cathedral (1933)

This is a seven-tube Crosley cathedral AM radio model 158 made in 1933. It is hard to find cathedrals these days but this was found at a radio meet. It was partially worked on sometime years ago but the speaker was shot completely. So I put a brand new out of the box 6-inch speaker and transformer. It plays local AM frequencies loud and clear. All seven tubes were good. All the capacitors were replaced with new ones and most of the resistors were replaced as well. It was cleaned and oiled. It was aligned for peak performance. The cabinet is in original excellent condition. The speaker grille cloth and knobs are original and in excellent condition as well. Six-month warranty as long as it is not abused. These 80 year old radios will last years if played no more than a couple of hours a day for a few days a week at least once a month. This is a great price for an old Cathedral radio.  $295.00.

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.
