The Holy Grail Of Antique Tube Radio’s – 1935 Zenith Stratosphere 1000Z

For a starting bid of $65,000 you might be able to win the best example of tube radio’s ever created by mankind. This was built during the depression, talk about taking a risk!

HERE is a link to the eBay ad, believe it or not, if the winning bid ends up as $65,000, they got a bargain! I saw one 4 years ago sell in dilapidated condition for $70,000 needing a full restoration!

For more information on this stunning console visit the Stratosphere Website.

That is one epic gem of a radio, she's a massive beasting, isn't she?

I've rarely seen them with multiple speakers, usually one single massive driver speaker in the center of the cabinet front, sometimes a smaller one if the unit also had a turntable option.

Sure is a beautiful piece Erik. Hope you get a good price for it.

Matt,

It's an incredible radio, I have seen parts of this model but never a complete one. Maybe some day!


JoJo,

This isn't my radio, if it was I wouldn't need money! :)

Well I'm sorry it isn't yours then. :(
