Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)
(wood tube table radio)

Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The Zenith "Cube" radios were very popular and great sellers for the company. They started a trend with other manufacturers producing their own cube radios. Silvertone, Stewart-Warner, Detrola and others all had their version of the cube. The cube design is still very popular with collectors today. Zenith had seven cube designs and the 216 was their entry level cube radio. A five-tube, AM-only AC set, it's still a very good radio with good sensitivity and volume. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked, replacing where necessary. We installed a safety fuse, new antenna lead and an audio cable to access an external device. The cabinet was completely restored by Gary Marvin, and it's gorgeous. Most of Zenith's radios had "piano" lacquer finishes, and Gary did a great job recreating that "factory fresh" look on this cabinet. We have the original knobs, chassis and side-mounted speaker. Here is yet another Zenith "Cube" that belongs in someone's collection... could that be you? 12"H x 10"W x 9-1/2"D.
