Zenith G500 Trans-Oceanic 5G40 Antique Tube Radio Repair Transoceanic P&R G-500

A Classic Tube Radio for your Collection!

Here we offer a classic vacuum tube radio. This is the Model G-500 {5G40 Chassis} of the Trans-Oceanic made by Zenith! The power cord has been removed and it is missing the 1L6 tube so it is offered as~is, for parts or repair. There are many sources on the internet that offer parts and repair services so you can give this old timer a voice again.

The cabinet is covered with a black textured cloth shows scuffs, loose threads and wear but overall still covers the cabinet. The front top lift hinge panel locks down into place when closed and it has the removable antenna in place underneath. The pullout antenna is in place and it has a plastic knob fitted to it to replace the missing end tip. The pointer moves when the tuning knob is rotated and the brass colored dial escutcheon is in place but note the dial cover is missing. This has a the famed Black Dial that is marked for all the AM & Shortwave bands. The speaker grille has several cracks and chips in it. but the pushbutton controls on the right side of the face are in place. Note this has two 19m buttons instead of a 25m and may be a factory error! Switch controls are in place under the dial as are the two control knobs. Really neat early portable here that will make a wonderful set to source those must have parts from or use it as a starter for your next restoration project so don't miss out. Measures 17 ½” wide x 11” tall x 8” deep when all closed up. Please see our other items for even more antique tube radios and vintage electronics.
