Zenith 5-S-319 "Racetrack" (1939)
Zenith 5-S-319 "Racetrack" (1939)
NEW!I've written about Zenith changing over from large tombstone and "Walton" type radios to a different look and approach at the end of the 1930's into the 1940's. The 5-S-319 was designed in 1938 for the 1939 model year and resembled their "cube" design, but certainly looked like a small version of the 1940 style table radio. The curved side-speaker grille and a more "rounded" design was a sign of things to come. The oval iconic "Racetrack" dial bezel to this day is still very collectable. The same radio chassis was also available in a small tombstone cabinet, and a chairside design. Our friend and talented radio repairman Todd Ommert replaced all of the capacitors. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord and audio cable were installed. The radio plays great, and the audio cable works quite well. Gary stripped, grain-filled, and painted the radio. He was able to save the original faux Zebrawood decal and finished with a "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, push buttons, chassis and dial scale. Here is a perfect example of the desirable "Racetrack" Zenith radio! 13"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.  $749.00. (1600311)
