Postwar American Television

Delco Car TV (?) Prototype

This set was discovered by Bobby D (VideoKarma). It appears to use a 8AP4 CRT, since it uses magnetic focus and has an anode connector for a metal tube. The tube lineup and use of the 8AP4 suggest a late 40s, maybe 1950 model.The set may have been designed for use in a car. Several 12 volt tubes are used, indicating that the set required a 12 volt supply. However, all cars made at that time used 6 volt batteries.
