Zenith 7-J-328 (1939)


Zenith 7-J-328 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1939 and 1940, Zenith produced a line of very large table radios. They had the chassis and speakers of console radios, but could sit on a table top, but sales of the sets were not good. Those low production numbers make them very rare today. The 7-J-328 is a seven-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. The "J" designation makes it both 6VDC and 110VAC, and is switchable between the two voltages. 1939 was pretty much the last year Zenith made 6VDC or "farm" radios as the REA (Rural Electrification Act) had electrified most of the rural parts of America. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. All of the resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. The 6-volt side of the power supply was rebuilt and functions perfectly. We added a safety fuse, new power cord, new battery leads and an audio input. The cabinet was stripped and redone right to a "piano" lacquer finish. All of the original knobs, chassis and speakers are with the set. We installed a period-correct grille cloth. This radio is the rarest of the rare, and I doubt any of us will see another one! What a unique and beautiful set to add to your collection! 23"W x 14"H x 12-1/2"D.
