Zenith 5-S-327 "Racetrack" Tombstone (1939)


Zenith 5-S-327 "Racetrack" Tombstone (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith produced several models of radios in the 1930's that were great sellers for the company at the time, and over the years, certain models had "staying power" and collectors coveted them for their design and workmanship. The 5-3-319 "Racetrack" radio, named for its oval dial, was one such radio. The dial was used in a few models, the rarest being the radio we show here today, the tombstone version of the "Racetrack" radio. The 5-S-327 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. The capacitors have been replaced with new, Mylar equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, safety fuse, antenna lead and audio input were installed. The radio has great tone and volume, coupled with lots of sensitivity across the dial. The cabinet was stripped, sanded and grain-filled. The final finish is a beautiful, polished "piano" lacquer. The radio has its original knobs, speaker, chassis and grille cloth. This is the first tombstone Racetrack we have found, and it's been restored and is ready to grace your collection! 16"H x 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"D.
