Zenith 705 (1934)


Zenith 705 (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1933, FDR had been elected president as the country was experiencing a severe depression. Unlike most companies, Zenith had a huge surplus of cash, and produced 125 models, the 200, 400, 500 and 600 model series for 1933, up from just 25 the year before. Several models were carried over to 1934, and the 700 series radios, called the "Challenger" series came out. The 705 is a six-tube, AM only, AC powered radio. This radio came from our friend and fellow restorer Todd Ommert. He replaced all of the capacitors, checked the tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. He installed a new power cord, audio cable and a new antenna lead. The radio has good sensitivity across the dial and plays with good tone and plenty of volume. Gary stripped the burl walnut and mahogany cabinet. He ended up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, dial scale, speaker and chassis. A beautiful "mantle" radio (Zenith didn't make many) to grace your collection. 15-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D.
