Scarce Royal 500 Raytheon


Out of stock


Offered here is the often talked about but seldom seen Zenith Royal 500 with the 7ZT40Z chassis.  This model chassis features the purple Raytheon transistors and was used during the peak production period when Sylvania and Texas Instruments transistors were in short supply.  Zenith paid a premium for Raytheon transistors, so they were purchased only as a last resort, and thus quite scarce.

This particular radio is in all original and near mint condition.  To make it even better, it is playing at 100%.  Don’t miss this one.  Check out the pictures and ask your questions.  Your Royal 500 collection is not complete until you add a Raytheon chassis to it, and this one is a beauty!
