DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Zenith in the 1950's excellent working condition. Cabinet is an original molded taupe mauve pink-ish plastic with a distinctive clear transparent clock and radio bezel that covers the entire front expanse of this clock radio. Very mid-century looking but looks relevant even by today's standards. The front bezel is in excellent condition with no cracks, scratches or hazing. No cracks on the top! Wow! No cracks, chips, repairs or missing material. No repaint or repairs. All original everything. Knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is over 50 years old! No dial light. Not designed with one but should have. The on off sleep side levers work fine. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is securely attached. The original cord was stronger and better quality than most. The power cord is in good working condition. All paper and wax 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. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. 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 with no pets. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage!
