Zenith 5-S-319 (1939)
Zenith 5-S-319 (1939)
Once in a great while I get my hands on one of these things, and the whole time I am restoring it, all I can think is "what a sweet little radio." This is one of those. Everything about this little 5S319 epitomizes Zenith's exceptional mastery of style, technical expertise, and quality that made them a leader in AM radio for over 50 years. One of the nicest looking and best-performing table radios I have ever restored. I see now why they are so highly prized by collectors. This one came to me in fairly sad condition. I had to do several veneer repairs, some better than others. I replaced all of the capacitors and resistors, gave it a full set of high testing tubes and a gorgeous, slick finish with 15 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. The knobs and pushbuttons are reproductions. The grille cloth is not original. I removed the dangerous 6X5 rectifier tube and replaced it with a solid-state rectifier. I will be glad to supply it with the tube type if you want, but if it shorts and burns up your transformer, I can't fix it for free. 13"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.  $750.00. (1680051)
