DESCRIPTION: Bakelite tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Zenith in 1951 in excellent working condition. This is an understated original slate grey radio that has been repainted original factory color! What this radio lacks in flamboyant looks, it makes up for in performance! It's like the sleeper muscle car in primer grey with a 426 Max Wedge with dual snorkels! I've had a few of these Zenith H series radios from the early 50's and they sound great! The electronic circuit design seems to hold up better than most over time. What's more surprising, this radio was originally designed with a radio-phono switch which enables it to function as a Bluetooth-MP3 player with the Retro Radio Farm receiver that is included. Knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is almost 65 years old! Dial light works. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is securely attached. 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 no pets. When this radio was new, Harry S. Truman was president!
