DESCRIPTION: This is the radio you will turn on and actually listen to! Its inconspicuous and somewhat plain looks are overshadowed by the fact it gets FM! And the cabinet is made of real wood! AM/FM Tabletop tube radio manufactured by Zenith in the mid-sixties time frame still in excellent+ working condition. This radio has a very good audio sound quality for design that is close to 50 years old. No cracks, splits, abrasions, or missing material anywhere on the cabinet! The wood has some checking dues to age and abrasions, dents, dings, and minor loss of finish at the edges. All original material and finish! No repaints or repairs. None needed. All knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing. The volume knob on the left is missing its center metal cap. Picks up AM and FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. Excellent mid-century design statement. Looks very Mad Men! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. The front metal fascia is checked due to age. No missing numbering, dots or dashes, or anything. No smudges or yellowing. The back panel is in excellent condition. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. All out of spec capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. The original power cord and plug is in good working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment no pets. When this radio was new, Harry S Truman was president! This thing belongs in a museum!
