Here is a nice example of the Royal 500 from 1958. This Long Distance radio features an enhanced chassis with an 8th transistor. This radio is in nice condition with no chips or cracks. The gold metal accents are shining brightly and look great against the nice white cabinet. Part of the reason this radio has been preserved in such nice condition is because of the included leather case and included felt bag which protected it over the past 5 decades.
The sound of this Royal 500D is as you would expect, awesome. The chassis is in its original condition, but has been re-aligned for peak performance. If you ever wondered what these Zeniths sounded like when new, get this one and find out.
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. Includes original leather carrying case and shoulder strap also in excellent condition. Heck, the original earphone is still in the back pocket too.
