Vintage Zenith Long Distance Catalin Tube Carry Case Radio-AM-Not Tuning
Vintage Zenith Long Distance Catalin Tube Carry Case Radio-AM-Not Tuning. This is wonderful art deco style Zenith case portable radio with plug and original battery that was part of a collection that we acquired. . It has the waveguide antenna and the external cable with suction mounting cup. The original Instruction folder is are safely stored in the back, but shows a bit of heat damage. When we put a powered up the radio with the cord, we could hear static as the volume was adjusted but we couldn't get the tuning needle to work. When I opened the back, I could manipulate the knob and feel some play so I assume the cord that connects the knob shaft to the tuner may be worn. I didn't play with it much further. It may just be the radio reception isn't good here, but it might be a bigger issue, so it's a project radio. It also needs a cord replacement as there are bare wires. There is a minor wear on the original case, but the remainder is in good shape This radio measures 15" x 6" x 10". We don't have the original packaging but we always pack extra for fast shipping and safe arrival on your doorstep.
