Help this unit find it's next home and more restoration! We've brought it back from the dead! Has strong picture tube, Stereo has good powerful sound, turntable starts right up. Picture tube yoke has been leveled since pics were taken, has strong CRT tested on B&K tester.

This is a piece that needs a great place to be displayed as it's near museum quality in build. BUT...we have to re-home it right away due to lack of space. So, we got it "going"...you continue the fix-up and enjoy. Come with help, it's a heavy unit. We have about one week to get this moved OUT..so make that offer. the strong CRT is worth the asking price, but we hope someone will continue the full restoration of the set. Lines in picture are from the unit being 6 feet from two AM and FM transmitters.

Please make an offer We want this NOT to become a fish tank, bar, or pet bed for tall pets! Uship recommended, perhaps you have ideas for how to easily get this heavy beast to your home. The unit is located in the engineering area at WION AM stereo 1430 in Ionia, MI but we NEED the room. First Come, First Served.

There's a video of it running at: https://youtu.be/-9MrJAF9L6s. Jim, office at i1430 dot com (3/30/21)

I would like to buy any TVs older than 1965, I will not be reselling or any shady stuff like that. I am just getting a collection started and I would like a few TVs to work with. I am already proficient with radio repair and I am looking to get into TVs. If anyone that lives reasonably close by that has anything that they would not mind selling I would greatly appreciate it. As for TVs wanted I don’t mind if it’s black or white or colour and I don’t mind if it’s not working, just some TVs to get me started in this very interesting field of hobby. Thanks for your consideration, Located in Langley, B.C, Canada. Joshua, 778-809-9710 Reditall27 at gmail dot com (2/2/21)

Magnavox Three Way TV Set. Probably 1961 but maybe a year or two in either direction, I don't know for sure. Everything works except the auto start function on the turntable, the arm doesn't register where it needs to drop the needle but you can use it manually no problem. I don't have antennae for it so I haven't seen anything on the TV except white noise so far. But the speakers sound clean and it's just a really cool unit. I'm in St George, UT. Call, email or text. 575-770-8208 jaredkgeorge@gmail.com (9/7/20)

I am looking for a 17BP4 or 17BP4A cathode ray tube. Must be non-aluminized. it would be real nice to find one NOS but 'good used' is ok. Other Non-aluminized CRT is possible. I am looking to TRADE my RCA CTC-12 . This set is complete with the exception of the fine tuning knob. The set does turn on and run , previous owner had replaced all the electrolytics. Yes the set will need to be restored and gone over before 'daily use'. I will take whatever pictures is needed. Located in MA. David, 508-309-8675 ws407c at aol dot com (6/2/20)

Zenith Chromacolor II console w/remote, Mfg. Sept. 1976. Picked up at an estate sale, as I didn’t want to see it get trashed, but I really am looking for a color roundie. Right now would like maybe an RCA console set with the turntable, stereo, etc. This set and remote works, decent picture. I’m sure the tuner could use a little cleaning. Cabinet in good condition. Was a piece of furniture in someone’s living room until recently. Has the “Zoom” feature, which is kinda interesting. Any questions, or want more pics, shoot me a text if you can. I screen my calls so if you call you might have to leave a message. Or the email works too. Might trade, just depends on what it is. Prefer pickup, but might meet you, or deliver, just depends on my situation/work at the time. Asking $75, or make me an offer. Located in NC.
