Meatloaf... Larry has definitely brought this radio back to life, major change from when I bought it.


Just curious, anyone know how many 267's were produced ?

There were 35,960 Chassis 1204 produced.

Of this number, they were distributed between these 7 models.

12-S-205 $350 Large radio/phonograph console
12-S-232 $99.95 Tombstone table model
12-S-245 $149.95 Chairside
12-S-265 $139.95 Console
12-S-266 $159.95 Comsole
12-S-267 $169.95 Console
12-S-268 $159.95 Wide console

I'm sure it was not evenly distributed, but what the exact figure would be, we don't know.

The lesser expensive/more popular models would get the lions share. My guess would be the 12-S-232 and 12-S-265 first.
12-S-266 next, 12-S-267, Maybe 12-S-245 as Chairsides weren't a huge seller. 12-S-268 and lastly 12-S-205.

As I put the 12-S-267 dead center in the list, its possible it could be roughly calculated by being divided by 7.

Perhaps roughly 5137?

Too bad Zenith didn't keep track of this info.

Voice coil for speaker finally arrived. ed up the chassis applied an IF signal and aligned the transformers. Connected a signal generator to the antenna port and checked all three bands. Audio was weak but there on all the bands. I will look at the voltages at each tube. The tuning motor does it thing and the power transformer and field coil stay cool. Shouldn't be long and this project will be in the books and on its' way home! The next post will show completed radio!

Here is another 12S267 on ebay. Needs some work, but I will say it is in better shape than mine when I bought it.

Absolutely beautiful work Larry; the owner could aptly name that radio Lazarus.

Hello all

The Zenith 12s267 is finished and sitting in my living room playing great. Larry along with his wife made a trip to Kentucky to personally deliver it!!! What a kind gesture for sure, Larry is a great guy.

My wife and I really enjoyed meeting them both and spending some time getting to know them. Looks amazing, later that night some church friends came over to see it and was very impressed.

Before bringing it to KY, Larry took it to the CC-AWA in Charlotte and it won a couple ribbons :D

Steve-"azenithnut" thanks for the advice about sending it to Larry to restore it....well worth it.

The photos really do not do it justice as the flash washes it out some, but it has found a new home in my living room.

Beautiful! Quite the transformation. And it came with a blue ribbon too. :D

One of you should put some pix in the Let's See Your Basket Case Restorations thread, too!

It’s a great looking radio that was transformed from the ruins. I think because of this you appreciate it more.

I’m glad you gave it a good home. Enjoy!
