1,800.00

This is a 1939 Zenith 12 tube model 12S370 commonly called by collectors “Big Bertha”, one of Zenith’s most famous and collectable years. It is sporting the fabulous “Robot Shutter Dial” and a green tuning eye tube. One of the largest radios Zenith ever made. This radio has one of the best sound. The cabinets unique design really contributes its overall sound quality.   

Cabinet: The cabinets’ book matched walnut veneer is beautifully restored with a lacquer finish and toned lacquer color trim. Every effort was made to reproduce the cabinets’ original look as it came from the factory. Wood repairs were made as necessary. The grille cloth is a reproduction of the original 1939 pattern. Hard to see with the grille bars.

 

Dial/Knobs: The Zenith "Black Dial" is in good condition as is the dial glass. The shutters move very nice and the tuner in both directions with ease. The white pointer and the second hand move nicely around the dial.

Electronics/Chassis/Cord: The 12 tube Superhetrodyne chassis is a performer and plays full dial scale, loud and clear. The radio has had a complete recap electronic restoration, all the electrolytic caps were replaced with new production parts. All the wax paper foil capacitors were replaced as well. All original tube shields are in place. The dial belt is new and smooth moving. The radio has very nice reception with no hum. A NOS (new) green eye tube was installed to dress up the playing experience. An outside antenna is necessary on old tube radios or a long wire. A new power cord was installed for safety.
