Marzano Red Orange 1953 Zenith Model L622F AM Vintage Tube Radio Gorgeous Looking and Sounding!
DESCRIPTION: This vintage tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Zenith in 1953 is in excellent physical and working condition. The bakelite cabinet is a gorgeous red and black color combo. Very hard to find color combo. The factory original red paint is evenly faded front, top, and sides to a red orange. The bottom center portion is the only part of the exterior that suggests the color was originally red. No cracks, chips or major scratches except on the bottom of the cabinet. Bottom crack has been repaired. Minor fleabites and paint nicks here and there. All knobs are original and securely attached. Original factory painted red over black bakelite. Not repainted, over sprayed or touched up. Original factory glossiness and sheen. This radio is over 60 years old! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine as designed. No tarnish, oxidation, pitting, or discoloration on metal cosmetic parts. Original volume is securely attached in excellent condition. Original tuning knob is securely attached in excellent condition no slipping. The clear plastic clock and tuning windows are in excellent condition no cracks no ellowing no warping due to age. The volume and tone modulate as designed through the entire range smoothly and without crackling. 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. Clock works and keeps accurate time. Clock motor is silent. Alarm works. Clock and alarm set functions work. Sleep and sleep timer works. This a rare clock calendar which works although I suspect may need to be reset for daylight savings and leap year.. The replacement power cord and plug is excellent working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. Original factory labels on bottom are in excellent condition with minor yellowing, no tears, and no missing corners no missing printed content. 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.
