Welcome to Garys Radios

R800Y_R285C.JPGYou have just found a resource for learning about and purchasing Zenith transistor radios.  These were produced for a short time in the USA (Chicago) between the years of 1955 and 1965.  If you have been here before, welcome back.  If this is your first visit, you might want to bookmark this page so you can stop back often to check out the latest changes to the site.

Perhaps you remember having one of these transistor radios when you were young and how it became your best companion.  It allowed you to listen to the ball games, catch the weather report, and brought the nation’s Top 40 songs to you each week.  Everyone had one, but I bet you don’t know where it is now.  Few could afford a Zenith, “The Royalty of Radio” because back then, they were expensive and purchased mostly by Doctors and other professionals.  They also were given as gifts to those lucky enough to have rich friends.  But now, they are affordable to almost anyone, if you can find them.  That is where I can be of help.  Go to the “For Sale” section and have a look.  And then you can go back and relive the past, this time with a Zenith.  Why not get the best?

Many of these Zeniths from the 50’s and early 60’s still work fine in their original condition, while some others need to have some simple electrical upgrades.  At times, you will be able to find some of these original and restored Zenith Royals available for sale here on this website.  Check the column on the right for the * For Sale * sections.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Collecting!  Gary
