Zenith 12-S-232 "Walton" (1938)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Zenith 12-S-232 "Walton" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Ah yes folks, the "Big Daddy" of the 232 series. The twelve-tube behemoth Walton. Zenith produced a seven-tube, a nine-tube, and the 12-S-232 is the rarest. You just don't see them very often, and you can only hope you have the means to buy one when they do appear. This twelve-tube, four-band (SB,SWx2,police) sports the correct 8-inch speaker. The push-pull audio output produces a ton of volume with console-like fidelity. The motorized "Robot Dial" or "Shutterdial" functions perfectly. The chassis has the correct stamp (12S232) making this a "numbers matching" 12-S-232. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. We installed a safety fuse, new power cord and an external input cable for an external device. Gary stripped and refinished the cabinet with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has all of its original knobs, chassis and speaker which is unique to the 12-tube. We installed a period correct reproduction grille cloth. Want to own one of the most desirable radios in the world? Here it is! 23"H x 18"W x 13"D.
