Product Description

Here is a pretty nice example of the first transistor radio from Zenith – the famous Royal 500 “owl eye” radio from 1956.  This measures 5.75” tall and is supported by a metal stand that doubles as a carry handle.

This radio has a nice ebony cabinet that is chip and crack free.  The 7XT40 chassis is an early serial number of #66,523 and it has been professionally recapped and aligned and is delivering peak performance.  The cabinet has a nice shine and the metal trim is bright gold and dent free and is clean in and out.  This radio is a worthy candidate for any collection or to use again as a daily player, just like it was 63 years ago.
