Zenith 5-R-135 (1937)

Zenith 5-R-135 (1937)
Sold by Joe Millward on May 19, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $399.00
In 1937, this was an entry level radio for Zenith costing less than $30. Most of the companies manufacturing radios offered a lower priced model due to the recession. Even at $30, this was still a high price for many people, but allowed a working family to have a nice Zenith radio in their home. This five-tube, two-band (SB, police) is a good performer with lots of sensitivity across the dial. Joe replaced all of the capacitors, resistors and tubes where needed, and performed an alignment. This radio plays great with lots of volume, utilizing an 8-inch speaker. This radio was rough when purchased, having been left in the trunk of a car for years! Gary did a fantastic job bringing this radio back to a "like new" factory lacquer finish. You don't see these around much, and this is one of the best restorations of a 5-R-135 I've seen; they are usually pretty rough. Priced right for a really nice addition to your collection. 16-1/2"H x 12"W x 7"D.
