The Zenith Trans-Oceanic 1000 was introduced by Zenith in the fall of 1957 just in time for Christmas.  This is the 1000-D and dates to 1960.  This Zenith was sent to me for repair by a Mississippi customer and needed one electrolytic capacitor.  Additionally, someone had attempted to make a repair and inserted the oscillator transistor incorrectly in its respective socket.  A full re-cap was done plus all electrolytics were replaced, alignment done, controls cleaned, transistor sockets cleaned and battery compartment rejuvenated.
