Zenith 5-S-218 (1937/1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 5-S-218 (1937/1938)

Remember those little plastic hologram toys from Crackerjack boxes, where you would tilt them and get two different pictures? That is what the amazing highlights in the front and top grain on this gorgeous Zenith 5S218 look like. I removed the dark stains that masked this beautiful effect and gave it a very nice, slick finish. Original knobs and speaker cloth. My usual professional restoration on the well made and very good performing chassis. I installed a full set of high testing tubes for long service life. The original speaker was missing, so I had to replace it with a different brand. The sound is very good. A little barely noticeable water damage along the back edge of the right side. That said, the overall look and finish are fantastic, and will stand out in any collection. The 5S218 was a very popular model for Zenith, and is very popular with collectors today. If you don't have one, here is your chance to pick up one of the nicest examples of this radio you are likely to see. Requires an external antenna. 12"W x 10-1/2"H x 10"D.  $599.00. (1680136)
