Zenith 5-S-319 "Racetrack" (1939)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 5-S-319 "Racetrack" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

I've written about Zenith changing over from large tombstone and "Walton" type radios to a different look and approach at the end of the 1930's into the 1940's. The 5-S-319 for the 1939 model year resembled their "cube" design, but certainly looked like a small version of the 1940 style table radio. The curved side-speaker grille and a more "rounded" design was a sign of things to come. The radio's oval iconic "Racetrack" dial bezel is still very collectable. The 5-S-319 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. All of the capacitors were replaced with modern equivalents. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, audio cable and antenna lead were installed. The radio plays great, and the audio cable works quite well. Gary stripped, grain-filled, and painted the radio and finished with a "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the iconic Zebrawood decal in perfect condition! The radio has reproduction knobs from Radio Daze, and the push buttons, speaker, and chassis are original. Here is a perfect example of the desirable "Racetrack" Zenith radio! 13"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.
