I have several radios of the vintage of your Zenith. I believe I paid 10 to 20 dollars for each of them at estate sales. On ebay we saw they range from $60 to $80. Antique stores would probably run around the same price as ebay. Much of the price variation is due to the condition of the case, whether the back is intact and if it has had its electrolytic capacitors replaced. That vintage used mylar capacitors in other areas and these lasted a long time, possibly forever. Older radios used waxed papaer capacitors which, no mater how well they were sealed, would absorb moisture and break down.
