Zenith 9-S-232 "Walton" (1938)


Zenith 9-S-232 "Walton" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
I have an ongoing discussion with my radio friends on what was Zenith's best year. You could say 1937 because of the electronic innovations and great cabinet designs, or 1938 which produced the Walton series and the new "Robot or Shutterdial" radios with motor-drive and the inclusion of a tuning eye tube. Today we have the ultra-iconic Walton nine-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. This is a complete and correct "matching numbers" 9-S-232 with the right speaker and chassis. The speaker alone can bring several hundred dollars. The capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new, bright and active tuning-eye tube was installed. A new power cord, safety fuse and an external audio cable were installed The motor drive works perfectly and the radio plays great with lots of volume. Gary stripped and refinished the Walton, and I think it's one of his finest restorations. Check out the hand-rubbed, lacquer "piano finish! The original wooden knobs and grille cloth are with the radio. This is a "like-new" Walton as you would have seen them on the showroom floor. One word covers it...fantastic! 24"H x 17"W x 12-1/2"D.
