 233731106095034460 15 TUBE ZENITH black shutter dial console radio mtrdriv

A 1938 ZENITH 15U269 RADIO, 15 TUBES, 3 BANDS IN ORIGINAL CONDITION. APPROX 43 X 15 X 27 & 80 POUNDS . MY FRIEND JOHN'S FATHER PURCHASED THIS AT CHRISTMAS 1937 FOR THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS PRESENT. THE RADIO WAS RETIRED SOMETIME IN THE 50'S, BUT KEPT AND REVERED. IT WAS MOVED FROM THE FATHERS HOUSE TO JOHNS HOUSE IN THE 60'S, PLACED IN THE DEN. IN 2006 JOHN WAS TAKEN TO A ALZEHEIMERS RESIDENCE. IN 2007 THE FAMILY HAD AN APPRAISAL DONE, AND DECIDED TO USE THE RADIOS SALE PROCEEDS TOWARD REPAIRING JOHN'S HOUSE --TO PREPARE FOR SELLING (HARD TO BELIEVE-IN 2007 SELLING A HOUSE WAS "NORMAL"). IN 2007 I PURCHASED THE RADIO AND REMOVED IT FROM ITS HOME OF 50 YEARS. I BROUGHT IT HOME, WRAPPED IT UP AND PUT IN STORAGE. JOHN DIED LAST YEAR AT AGE 95. AS THIS IS A DUPLICATE TO ONE THAT I HAVE OWNED FOR 20+ YEARS, ONE THAT HAS ITS OWN HERITAGE VALUE, AND, I AM DOWNSIZING MY STORAGE, I HAVE DECIDED TO SELL THIS PIECE. I THINK IT IS A GOOD OPPURTUNTY FOR A COLLECTOR. IT IS NOT MINT SHINY, PLAYNG ETC., BUT---ITS A NICE ORIGINAL AND THATS A GOOD (IF NOT THE BEST) WAY TO GET A RADIO. CHASSIS; FROM OUTWARD APPEARANCE IT LOOKS UNMODIFIED, DUSTY BUT NOT RUSTY. RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 6T5 EYE TUBE (UNTESTED). SHUTTERS ARE DUSTY, BUT FUNCTION WELL. NO CRAZING OR OTHER DAMAGE ON PLATE SURFACES. CABINET; VERY SOLID, BELIEVE ITS HAS BEEN ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF AN OCCUPIED RESIDENCE UNTIL 2007. TOP IS NOT MINT BUT EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD, NO WATER RING DAMAGE-SEE PHOTOS. TOP LEFT SIDE CORNER HAS 4-5 SMALL SPOTS, APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN TOUCHED UP WITH A DARKER NONMATCHING STAIN -SEE PHOTOS. THE UPPER PORTION OF THE LEFT SIDE SHOWS CONSIDERABLY LIGHTER. THE REASON; FOR DECADES THAT WAS FACING NORTH, NEAR A CURTAINED WINDOW. NOT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT, BUT THE SUNS RAYS GOT TO IT. THIS RADIO SHOWS SEVERAL SMALL SCRATCHES, DINKS, ETC.,. NOTHING SERIOUS. REASON; IT HASNT HAD ANY STAINERS, OILS, QUICK FIXES, ELIXERS, SNAKE OILS, ETC APPLIED IN PROBABLY 60 YEARS (-IF EVER), AND NOTHING IS HIDDEN. OPERATION; IN PREPARING FOR THIS LISTING, I DECIDED TO CHECK IT ELECTRICALLY. I CUT THE EXISTING TRASHED POWER CORD, TEMP WIRED IN ANOTHER. I TESTED FOR SHORTS, NONE FOUND. TESTED TRANSFORMER, IT WAS FINE. REINSTALLED THE RECTIFIER TUBES AND TURNED IT ON-STARTED PLAYING IMMED. MOTOR DRIVE MOTOR WORKS BOTH WAYS, BUT ALL DIAL BELTS ARE BROKEN/INOP. I ONLY LISTENED TO THE AM FOR 10-20 SECONDS, ENOUGH TO KNOW IT WAS A PLAYER. THIS RADIO WILL NEED A THOROUGH ELECTRICAL RESTORATION, BUT IT SHOULDN'T NEED REPLACEMENT OF HARD TO OBTAIN PARTS. THIS IS AN OLD USED ITEM AND SOLD AS IS, NO WARRANTY, NO RETURNS. PICKUP HERE 20 MILES WEST OF DETROIT MICH WITHIN 60 DAYS-or- DELIVERIES AVAILABLE; FREE DELIVERY WITHIN 125 MILES (THATS 1/2 WAY TO CHICAGO) BURBANK OHIO.................................................. NOV 20TH..............FREE - I MUST BE AWARE OF THIS WITHIN 1 HOUR AFTER BID CLOSING.
