Thanks guys! In 1965 my Grandmother bought a Motorola color set, never really worked. Displayed a white screen most of the time. (raster?). In '66 she bought a Zenith that lasted until 1982...

That pic looks more like a Westinghouse or Silvertone to me. Zenith did layout their knobs like that for a while, but used different style knobs and a different flatter mask/face plate with that knob layout.

It's a '58 Motorola. I have one in my collection.

Yes, as The Universal Dave said, it's a QuasarII, Works In The Drawer, 1970, hybrid, I have one identical to it! Nice basic cabinet TV, 23" CRT.

I have the same Motorola WID TV. Very nice set, I did a full restore on it last year, there's a thread on it here on VK. The cabinet is real wood veneer, and is very well made.
