Zenith Royal 500 (1957)
Sold by Gary Ball on January 26, 2020
Listed price on date of sale - $146.25
Beginning around the middle of 1956, the Royal 500 was revised to this 2nd generation 500. The major change outside was larger knobs for easier operation. Inside, a mass-produced printed circuit board chassis replaced the hand wired one to help keep up with the high demand. Zenith added the color white to the black and maroon line up, and for a short time, tan and pink versions were offered. Tan and pink are scarce and highly sought after by collectors. The gem offered here is serial number 232,939 and this is dated the 36th week of 1957. The seven-transistor 7ZT40Z1 chassis has been recapped and aligned to assure peak performance for years to come. The chassis is clean and has all seven of the original transistors. The maroon cabinet has a nice shine and is almost scratch free.
