This is a 1938 Zenith 9 tube model 9S244, Zenith’s most famous and collectible year. It is sporting the fabulous “Motor Drive Robot Shutter Dial” and green tuning eye. The large black dial is in very excellent shape. The cabinets’ book-matched walnut veneer is beautifully restored with a flawless lacquer finish and toned lacquer color trim. The grille cloth is a reproduction of the original pattern. The knobs are the original wood Zenith knobs, no reproductions here. The superheterodyne 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 paper foil capacitors were replaced as well. The dial belts are new for smooth motor operation and tuning.
