I know of three of that specific model: the one pictured above which resides at the Early Television Museum and two which are restored and can be seen doing their thing on YouTube. One of those is mine. :)

IIRC they survived that bankruptcy. I have a 1967 Wards Airline that is supposedly muntz made.....A real odd ball a RCA CTC-16 clone chassis, driving a rectangular CRT.
