I am used to seeing the overuse of “Art Deco” “eames era” and “Machine age” on things that really are a big stretch but this clown - geesh...

Like clicking on a “63 Corvette” and find out they’re listing a 74 Vega because they were both made by Chevrolet

From the AD:

The radio is FULLY RESTORED both electronically and cosmetically. .......Electronically the 5B01A chassis has been gone through and brought up to Original factory specs.

Looking at the chassis pictures, that's not exactly how I would have described it...... :?

Here's the sellers answer about my question on fully restored when I mentioned just a couple caps replaced >>
Hi the old caps and resisters that were not replaced test good. Thanks; Rich

I'm starting to think that maybe Zenith made this radio, unless Majestic was actually a company and not a brand name at this point. Looking at the chassis, I can see a few similarities between it and my 6D525.

1. A paper tag with the model number riveted to the back of the underside of the chassis.
2. Very similar black spaghetti sleeving on the power cord when it enters the chassis.
3. Holes on the bottom of the chassis where the chassis screws fit into.

It could also be that Zenith and Majestic both got their bare chassis from the same supplier, or that Majestic may have tried to copy Zenith :shock:
