I somehow hope the seller simply failed to fix his typo. The alternative is depressing.

Full Size Zenith Multi Band Radio - $200 (Posted 9 days ago)

Full size Zenith multi band radio: short wave, aviation, AM bands. Needs the dial belt replaced, otherwise all should be working. It hasn’t been used in years, but the last time it was, everything worked. Cabinet is in excellent condition. $700/offer.

Even though I've never really cared for that cabinet, $200 would be a great deal on that set. If the "real" price is $700, it will sit for a while, but I could see it bringing close to that on the West Coast to the right buyer.

I bought mine for $100. I didn't care for the design when I saw it in photos, but it looks a lot nicer in person. The sides have some nice veneer and the lines across the front are very sleek.

Definitely not my favorite Zenith, but it was in my backyard, so I would’ve bought it anyway, but it’s gone now.
