I am looking to purchase a restorable Col-R-Tel. The color wheel need not be in decent shape or even present. I can rig up one of my home-made wheels to work if I have a restorable chassis. Call or email and name your price. Thanks. Benjamin, 313-515-0943 blmoyer at oakland dot edu (5/1/16)
For sale Sharp TV in good condition and works great 27 inch color $75.00. Located in CA. Shirley, MartsnlS at verizon dot net (4/19/16)

I am continuing to downsize my collection and now I wish to sell a very rare early color set. This is a Motorola 19CT1. What makes it rare is the fact that it has the original 19VP22 picture tube and the gold bezel. Almost all of these sets were retrofitted with a 21 inch tube. I got this set many years ago but now it is time to sell. Here is a link to some pictures of the set: http://www.pakratz.com/motorola.html.

The CRT is good and the chassis is in excellent condition. Price for this rare set is $4000. No trades - I'm downsizing :-) Antenna is not included. I know Corpus Christi is a long way from everywhere so we can discussing shipping/pickup options or I can deliver the set to a predetermined location like Dallas.

Here is a much sought after item that is rarely seen for sale! Vintage RCA CT 100 television set. Introduced in 1954, the CT-100 was the first consumer color television available in the USA. The TV set retailed for $1000, which was half the price of a new low-end car. It is believed RCA produced only 4000 of these TV's over six months and only about 100 survive. Most of those have CRT tubes that would not produce a picture because they are bad. They are gassy. This 1954 CT-100 television has only had only one owner and was in use until 1976. Since then it has been stored and not used.  As you can see this particular set is in very good vintage condition On December 1, 2015 the CRT tube was tested by John Tyminski a well-known reputable vintage radio and TV repairman in New Jersey. The Tests revealed that the picture tube is in good condition and can display a picture so the set is ready for restoration. There are some light scratches on the original wood console and one small hole as if a screw were missing on the left side near the top. All original knobs are present, the back of the set is present, grate underneath and the pencil case are all in place. The set is available for local pickup in Bridgewater, New Jersey. A good-looking television set and a great piece of American history I am asking $6,000 as is FOB Bridgewater, New Jersey. (908) 448-8394, kumpf at optonline dot net (1/17/16)
