Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

In 1939, Zenith offered a few models of very large table radios. The cabinet had the depth of a console radio, and some of the chassis were also used in console models. In 1939, they offered a seven-tube and a nine-tube version. In 1940, they offered an eight-tube version, and a twelve-tube set. There are a few other models of this very large, highly collectable radio. The 7-S-323 is seven-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. I've always felt that the seven-tube Zeniths were some of the best receivers out there during this time period, and this one is no exception. This radio was picking up some shortwave stations in the shop during the day, which generally doesn't happen. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where necessary. A new safety fuse, power cord, antenna lead and audio input cable were installed. Gary definitely "Marvinized" this cabinet, which was in great condition to start with. The stripping of the old finish and pristine lacquer finish are highlights of his work. The original knobs, chassis and 8-inch speaker are with the set. Gary installed a period-correct grille cloth. There just aren't many of these big Zeniths around as they just didn't make many. Here's a fine example of the seven-tube version completely restored and "collection ready!" 24"W x 14"H x 13"D.  $1,195.00. (1600536)
