Zenith 805 Cathedral (1935)


Zenith 805 Cathedral (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith didn't make a lot of cathedral radios. They were late in the market as Philco had introduced their "Baby Grand" cathedral and became industry leaders with the design. The "Zenette" cathedrals helped the company out of some financial difficulties, but Zenith had few cathedrals and lagged behind other companies. The 805 was the last cathedral Zenith produced. This five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set is a good performer. Blake went in and replaced all of the capacitors. He checked all of the resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. He installed a new cloth power cord, external audio cable and a new antenna lead. The set has really nice fidelity and sensitivity across the dial. Gary stripped the cabinet and finished up with grain-filler and a semi-gloss, lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs and speaker, and we installed a reproduction grille cloth. The 805 is getting harder to find these days, and this is a really nice example for anyone's collection! 15"H x 13"W x 9"D.
