Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)

Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)
Sold by Joe Millward on December 16, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $749.00
Zenith had so much going for it in 1937. A whole new line of radios, innovative in electrical and cabinet design. Several models, both consoles and table radios, shared a ten-tube chassis. The smaller tube count radios were some of the best in the industry, and the 5-S-127 was no exception. The mid-sized Art Deco cabinet with the black, multi-colored band dial was a huge seller, and to this day highly collectable. Blake went into the chassis, replacing all of the old capacitors with new equivalents. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced if they were out of tolerance. He installed a new power cord, safety fuse and a cable for an iPhone, iPad, Bluetooth etc. Zenith got more performance out of their five, six and seven-tube radios than most manufacturers, and this radio is no exception! Gary then stripped the cabinet, and he produced a gorgeous refinish! The original knobs were retained, and a period correct reproduction grille cloth installed. Zoom in and see for yourself the beauty of this restoration. If you have been looking for this radio for your collection, you're not going to find a better one. 16"H x 13-1/2"W x 10"D.
