Zenith TransOceanic Restoration

I have restored Zenith TransOceanic radios both tube and transistor for 22 years. Contact me if you want to have your Zenith TransOceanic 500 or 600 restored or any 7000, 3000, 2000 or 1000 as well. Normal turnaround time is about a week or less.

 

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

NEW!

Zenith R7000-2 Trans-Oceanic (1981)

This is a Zenith TransOceanic R-7000-2 radio that you can use in the garage, pool, or beach that plays great FM, It also plays AM and the weather band but no Shortwave. It has been restored with all new electrolyte capacitors and aligned for peak performance. I also clean the pots and bandswitch as well as lube it. It is a rare radio in that only 25,000 R7000-2's were made. The cabinet has all it parts and has seen some wear, but the battery box is like new and the antenna is straight and true. The "-2" is the last of the R-7000 series and is sought after because it has large gears for its tuner. They do not break. The bands also click into position. This is normally a $500 to $700 radio but due to no Shortwave I have put it at a good price. $175.00. (0040366)

 

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

NEW!

Zenith D7000Y Trans-Oceanic (1978)

I have been working on these radios for about 22 years. All of them play great FM. But about 10 percent of these 7000's play absolutely fabulous FM usually because the radio was not played that much. This is one of them. Ordinarily this radio would sell for $495 but is has one shortwave band (19M) that does not play. If you are into shortwave, you know that the stations are on several of the bands. So whatever you wanted to hear on the 19M is on another band. The case and battery box are pristine. The radio is not just serviced which replaces some electrolytic capacitors. It is restored with all new electrolytic capacitors which will allow the radio to play another 40 years like new. It comes with a log book and new power cord. Also the light switch is finicky which is typical for Zenith T/O's since most people did not use the switch. $295.00. (0040365)

 

RCA 96T1 (1938)

NEW!

RCA 96T1 (1938)

Absolutely beautiful RCA AM Radio, Model 96T1 built in 1936. Original cabinet, knobs and 7-inch speaker for superb sound. Six tubes allows for great station pick up. Restored with all new capacitors and good tubes. The case is definitely an Ingraham cabinet that has a unique kidney shape to it. $295.00. (0040364)

 

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

Stewart-Warner R-104A Cathedral (1932)

This is just a beautiful looking cathedral radio made by Stewart-Warner in 1932. It was purchased in Wilmington, North Carolina some 15 years ago. Been with me ever since. The ornate cabinet is in superb original condition. It is a large six-tube cathedral with an 8-inch speaker that looks like new (see pic). The chassis is as clean as you get with an 80 year old radio and all six tubes were good. I replaced all the electrolytic and wax capacitors, as well as most of the resistors which were out of tolerance. It plays loud and clear. The power cord, antenna wire and ground wire are all new. It was cleaned, oiled and aligned for peak performance. The speaker grille cloth and knobs are original and in excellent condition. Six month warranty. 19"H x 14"W x 12"D. $495.00. (0040354)

 

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

Electrohome 51-418 "Music Box" (Canada, 1946)

This is a Music Box AM radio by Electrohome, made in Canada in 1946. It is a five-tube All American miniature tube radio that is a great AM player with a 10 ft cord. I restored it with all new electrolyte and wax cap replacements and good tubes. It also has a new power cord. To turn it on, you just open the box lid. The wooden box is in great condition. The chassis and speaker look like new. The dial plastic has been repaired but can be seen easily in that little dial window. $275.00. (0040345)

 

Windham 5D2 (late 1940s)

Windham 5D2 (late 1940s)

This is an all American Five-tube Windam radio which plays rather well. As you see from the pictures I have restored the electronics and aligned the radio for peak performance. The chassis and 5" speaker are in excellent condition. The case has a repaired 2" crack on the back left side as you are looking at the radio. Other than that the Bakelite is in great condition. A nice playing radio for a great price. $75.00. (0040316)
Back to Top
My goal is to give you a great radio that you can play for years to come.  If the radio has any flaws or parts that are not original, you will know it before the purchase.  All the radios I sell have been electronically restored which means the following:

1) All tubes/transistors are checked and replaced when necessary.
2) All electrolytic and wax capacitors are replaced.
3) Resistors are checked and replaced if they are out of tolerance.
4) If the speaker cone is torn beyond a simple fix, it is sent out and replaced completely.
5) The tuning capacitor, volum , bass/treble controls are cleaned and lubricated.
6) The radio is aligned and tuned to play at peak performance.
7) Once the radio is restored, it is tested for three hours.
8) Before it is shipped, it is re-checked and tested, and will be played and listened to for three more hours.
9) The radio is professionally packed and shipped by USPS Priority 2 to 3 day service. It will be insured for sale value.

If the radio does not play when it arrives, return it for a full refund.  If you are not satisfied with the radio when it arrives send it back for a refund less shipping costs.  The radio is also guaranteed for six months assuming it is treated well.
