Zenith 5-J-217 "Cube" (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 5-J-217 "Cube" (1938)

These highly collectable Zenith radios, referred to as a "Cube," were a huge success for Zenith. This iconic, good sounding, reliable radio created a huge following and are still desirable radios to this day, and this model is very rare amongst "Cubes." Zenith made several models of the "Cube" and this is the only AC/6 volt version I have ever seen. The 5-J-217 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) AC and six volt battery radio. All of the capacitors were replaced with new Mylar equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A safety fuse, antenna lead, power cord and audio input cable were installed. Gary stripped the original finish off of the Mahogany and walnut cabinet. He ended up with a beautiful lacquer "piano" finish. The radio has the original knobs, speaker and chassis. This rare model is very unique, and we offer the necessary cables should you want to use it in six volt capacity. We also have designed our own six volt power supply, so you can use this radio both ways at home. 14"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $899.00. (1600509)
