New Old Radio

Zenith 7G01 AM/FM table top radio

manufactured in early 1950’s with a bakelite case.

Found at Dupage county flea market, for $15

Don’t know if it works, it does need some polish and replacement pointers for the station, and some new paint for the station numbers.







I plan on working and fixing this one up in the near future, but I love collecting these old radios and learning to fix them adjust them and make then near new. I think these radios will be lost in time soon, since everything is either digital, or disposable.  I will attach some schematics and literature that I find on this radio below.
