(click on picture for high resolution image)

This set was introduced in 1954. It has a rare 19 inch tube. Most of these sets were later modified with 21 inch tubes by Motorola. The chassis is identical to our other Motorola color set, the 19CK2. This set has been restored to working condition. Here are sales materials, 1956 brochure, techincal information, and a 1955 magazine article about the set.
