Zenith 5-S-319 (1939)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 5-S-319 (1939)

NEW!Certain radios really caught the eye of buyers then, and now. This very nice Zenith 5S319 is one of those radios. This was a very good seller for Zenith, and a lot of them have survived. The cabinet is ornate and attractive, fronted with the classic, racetrack shaped dial that gives the set its nickname. The chassis is very well designed and a very good performer on shortwave and Broadcast. The reception is almost exactly as good on "automatic" as on dial tuning, which is rare. I gave it a very nice, slick finish, and my usual meticulous chassis rebuild, replacing all the caps and resistors. Full alignment, and a set of high testing tubes for long service life. Unfortunately, I couldn't save the fake zebra wood strip. To be honest, I have always felt that it looked out of place on the cabinet anyhow. One small veneer repair on the top rear. Knobs and pushbuttons are reproductions. I replaced the dangerous 6X5 rectifier with a solid state one. I can put a real one in there, but if it shorts and blows your power transformer, I won't cover that under warranty. This radio is top shelf in every regard except for the missing photo finish strip, and will be a standout in any collection. Many of these have sold in the 750 to 800 dollar range on Radio attic. I'm pricing this one a little lower because of the missing photo finish. Barring that, if you buy this radio, you will be getting one of the nicest examples of this model you are likely to find.  $699.00. (1680137)
