Zenith 5-S-218 "Cube" (1938)


Zenith 5-S-218 "Cube" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
These highly collectable Zenith radios, referred to as a "Cube," was a huge success for Zenith. Soon other manufacturers were designing and selling their own versions of this popular radio. This iconic, good sounding, reliable radio created a huge following and are still desirable radios to this day. Zenith made six models of the "Cube" with the 5-S-218 being the second largest model after the 6-S-222. The 5-S-218 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. All of the capacitors were replaced with new, Mylar equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A safety fuse, new power cord, antenna lead and input cable were installed. Gary did his usual masterful work on the gorgeous Walnut and Mahogany cabinet, stripping off the old finish and ending up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, speaker and chassis, and the original grille cloth was used. This is a perfect Zenith "cube" for your collection! 12"W x 11"H x 9"D.
