In 1958, Zenith revised the popular Royal 500 to the model D. This took it from a 7 transistor radio to 8 transistors and earned the distinction of “Long Distance” and took pocket radios to a whole new level of performance.
This example has a chip and crack free ebony cabinet and is defect free. It shows light wear and scuffing on the back. The 8AT40Z2 chassis has a serial # of 315,344 and has been recapped to assure it will be in nice working condition for years to come.
