Here is a nice example of the Royal 500 from 1959. This Long Distance radio features an enhanced chassis with an 8th transistor, and an expanded range speaker. The cabinet is in nice condition with no chips or cracks and the gold metal accents are shining brightly.
The sound of this Royal 500D is nothing short of awesome. The chassis has been expertly recapped and retuned for peak performance. If you ever wondered what these Zeniths sounded like when new, get this one and find out. Seriously.
Clean in and out, this radio is just a great example to add to your collection, or to your breakfast table. Works on 4 AA batteries.
