The CTC-5 was introduced in 1956, and has a 21 inch round picture tube. It came in several cabinet styles, including this console version named the "Whitby". More information on the CTC-5 is available at Ed Reitan's site. Here is the service manual, an advertisement and an article about 1957 RCA color sets and an advertising poster. Our set has been restored by Dave May.
