1937 Very Tall, Nicely Refinished RCA model 7T1 "Zephyr" style Tombstone Radio.
1937 Very Tall, Nicely Refinished RCA model 7T1 Tombstone Radio.
Up for offers is a 1937 RCA Victor radio model 7T1 in a tall tombstone cabinet.
Introduced to the public in June 1936, the RCA model7T 1 is a 3 band, 7 tube set (including a magic tuning eye tube) offering the AM broadcast band and two Short Wave bands (530-22,000 kc).
The RCA Victor model 7T 1 tombstone radio cabinet is veneered with striped walnut on the top and sides with beautiful butt walnut in front.
The lower front of the cabinet was nicely refinished by a previous owner while the rest of the cabine finish appears to be original. Theentire cabinet finish is in excellent condition. There are a few minor scuffs from age and a smallchip of veneer missingon the front of the cabinet in the lowerright corner. Topreserve the rest of the veneer at the bottom of the cabinet,I replaced the four worn outrubber tabs attached tothe bottom of the cabinet with newer and more durableversions.
The set has all of its original hardware: grille cloth, plastic dial lens cover and RCA knobs. All are in very good condition. The grille cloth has a couple of small blemishes including a small white streak down the left side. This will probably come off with a light brushing with a toothbrush or other soft bristle tool.
With its side louvres the cabinet is reminiscent of some "Zephyr" styled radio cabinets from the same time period. The multi-colored dial scale gives this radio even more class.
The chassisappears to be untouched and original. When powered up slowly on a variac it hums and there is no reception.
As such it will need the services of a qualified technicianto restore it to good working condition.
The RCA Victor 7T1 cabinet construction is very solid. At one point or another, I have owned the entire 1937 line of RCA tombstone radios and when restored, they all offer a full, rich sound with excellent bass response. This isdue in part to solid cabinet construction and the use of good sized speakers in relation to cabinet size.
Dimensions of this sharp looking radio are: 19 3/4 inches tall, 14 1/4 inches wide and 8 1/4 inches deep.
