Zenith Royal 800 (1956)


Zenith Royal 800 (1956)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Offered here is Zenith's first all-transistor AM portable radio. The powerful seven-transistor chassis is enclosed in an ebony nylon cabinet with a pop-up handle that houses the antenna. The large 4-inch speaker is behind the gold metal grille and the Vernier (gear-reduced) tuning knob is on the right side. The volume control is on the left side. Inside, the hand wired chassis is mounted to a metal board that has plug-in GE top hat style transistors. The radio is powered by eight "C" batteries that are housed by a red battery tube. Click here for more information on this model. The gem offered here is in excellent used condition. The 7ZT41 chassis serial #85,019 has been recapped and the antenna restored so this radio is playing like new again. Very powerful. The cabinet is without chips or cracks and the back cover shows only minor warp as these are known to have. A hefty package, this weighs over 4 pounds without batteries. Be sure to click on a picture to hear this radio play.
