Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)

Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)
Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)
Sold by Joe Millward on April 19, 2020
Listed price on date of sale - $749.00
This is the fifth 5-S-127 we have had on the Radio Attic since we started. This radio has been one of the most desired and collected radios we have offered for sale. A mid-sized tombstone that really exemplifies Art Deco design. This five-tube, three-band (SB, SWx2) features that famous big, black dial and several new for 1937 innovations and design. Blake has completely restored the chassis by replacing all of the wax/paper capacitors with the new modern Mylar caps. The tubes and low-voltage resistors have been tested and replaced as needed. A new line cord, fuse, audio cable and a precise alignment have been added, making this a sensitive, great playing Zenith. Gary has refinished the cabinet with grain filler, lacquer and toners just as it was done in the 1930's for an original-looking finish. These Zenith tombstone radios don't come up for sale that often so don't hesitate! 19"H x 13"W x 9"D.
