Everyone post your want lists
I know a lot of us have specific models, brands, or chassis that they like to collect, and that finding anything specific can take years of looking. What if we had a thread where everyone posts their wish list and location? That way, if anyone has something, or sees something another VK member wants, they can let them know about it. I know a lot of VK members go nuts over sets that I wouldn't even take a second look at, and I'm sure the same is true of some of my "dream" sets. I also have sets I know I'll never touch that I would love to find homes for.

I'll kick this off: CT-100 (EVERYONE!)

I'm in Port St. Lucie Florida, I want a Magnavox television console, color or b & w, with doors, working preferably.

Electronic M 06-05-2011 04:33 PM

I live in Pewaukee(a bit west of Milwaukee), Wi.

My acquisition budget fluctuates depending on what I've been buying, selling or saving for, so most items over 300$ I may not be able to immediately purchase.

When I was a kid in the 90's my folks had almost the exact set in the linked video below(though I think the finish was lighter), and some of my first memories were watching that Motorola Quasar WID set. After killing that set when I was young (I was curious as to why the sound came in before the picture, and toggled the power switch until it would not turn on back when I was 3 or 4 years old:stupid:) I've come to feel obligated to preserve one(also for nostalgia). Skip to 7:30 to see it with the front panel reassembled.

I want a roundy color TV/stereo combo with remote and tube audio system, in a modern (for the time) styled cabinet, prefer Zenith, Magnavox, and Curtis Mathes, RTR deck a plus.

A pre-war TV.

A Setchell Carlson Color Roundy. Also any S-C color table set or portable.

Color TV's made before 1960.
I would specifically really like a 15" Admiral model C1617A, 15" Zenith, any set with a chassis that is NOT an RCA design.

The VHF tuning knob, the back and the legs/stand for my blond RCA CTC-4 Seville. A good 21AXP22 round screen color CRT for it.

21" Philco Predicta (must have a good CRT, and the flyback).

Zenith Avanti(hybrid or combo), and some of their other very modern styled offerings of the time.

Philco Safari portable (black).

Admiral bakelite console TV

RCA model 8TR29, and a good top cover for my 8TS30.

GE model 810.

Westinghouse "Jet Set" table top combo

Early 60's GE combo or stereo only version of that table top model with hinged speakers that doubled as doors.

Pilot model TV37.

A 1940's projection set.

A spare 21" color roundy glass CRT(such as the 21FBP22, 21FJP22, 21GUP22, 21GVP22, etc...).

Strong 16GP4.

If the price is cheap enough I'll adopt any color set that uses tubes, and most tube TVs in general.

Some non TV things I want.
A pair of the same model of add on Dolby NR units for reel to reel or 8-track decks.
A four channel cassette deck.
A working CD-4 / Quadradisc Quadraphonic decoder.
Quad records, eight tracks, and reel to reel tapes.
Any matrix type quadraphonic decoder with logic.
A Philco "beam of light" with "mystery control" and preferably a wire recorder in it as well.
ED betamax deck.
A laserdisc recorder (according to wikipedia there were prosumer units made).
A Transcription turntable (I built a crude one, and would like a real one).
A couple more Heathkit A-7D or A-7E tube amps.
A good or restorable E.H. scott radio.
A good or restorable 30's or 40's lighted art deco visable mechanism 78RPM jukebox(preferably wurlitzer or rock ola, I have to like the styling on it to be interested). The Wulritzer 1100 and earlier are my taste.
Any color set that uses a 15GP22 CRT, a 15GP22 CRT, HV subchassis for a CT-100, chroma osc coil for a CT-100, or a CT-100 parts chassis.
Any format of tape recorder that I did not mention.

Some more vintage cars. 1948 and older GM (and Nash '51[especially] and older) fastbacks, finned 50's cars (such as '59-'60 caddys, '57 Lincolns, and late 50's mopar like the 'forward look models' and the 61 imperial), first year (1967 IIRC) old's Toronado and the first body style Eldorado based on the same front wheel drive platform (especially the one with the headlamp covers that blended into the grille), Lincoln Mark III and IV, a pre-1980 station wagon or Suburban (I'd like to have a period correct TV hauler :D).
A girlfriend.:D

The more I learn the longer my want list gets, but my habitual buying keeps it at bay.

Before I shuffle off this mortal coil-Or to Buffalo, whichever comes 1st, I'd LOVE to have a 1950 Zenith 12" leather-covered porthole tabletop set-Working, of course...I'd also like to get my '65 Zenith color Roundie working again, & get all my TVs back from Terry's...A few other things-Some sort of cable/antenna device that would allow me to have more than 2 or 3 sets working at a time, a 30-40' tower to mount my Winegard FM antenna atop, a GOOD "rotaterator" & antenna distribution device for IT, as I have an ICOM R-7000, 2 Nems Clarke UHF/FM receivers, a Hallicrafters SX-62A, & my Yamaha RX-V1, plus some other FM sets I've not mentioned. A power tranny for a Sonny(SCREW the Bots....) 8-301 W-I have an otherwise PRISTINE example, that I'd LOVE to get working, & finally, a good engineer & a couple of assistants to install all this stuff for me...(grin)

AUdubon5425 06-05-2011 05:15 PM

About the only thing I'd be interested in right now is a 23" B&W set from 1979-81 (or later, if such a thing exists.)

I can help you out with both of these, Tom. I have a remote color all tube Admiral set in a nice wood cabinet, and a Zenith non-remote that has a 23" tube in it. Come on down to Waukegan to collect. :thmbsp:

In that case, you can empty out my garage, bring a U-Haul! :D

newhallone 06-05-2011 08:08 PM

one of those scott consoles with the tv would be neat. In blond. if there is such a thing. A blond porthole. A danish or blond roundie. The least would be a good crt for my Zenith roundie. A nice strong one close by for cheap or free. LOL.

I live in escanaba michigan. I would like to find homes for a couple sets too. LOL a 59 GE, motorola stereo/BW combo, and a bakelite admiral 17".

HadYourPhil 06-05-2011 08:55 PM

Still looking for the Setchell-Carlson portable appearing as my avatar. A model with UHF would be especially nice!

bgadow 06-05-2011 10:31 PM

A GE 23v color set, preferably with the KE chassis though older (KA, KC?) would be okay.

A cheap (ha!) Philco TV-123. I think I'd rather have that than a CT-100.

sampson159 06-05-2011 10:39 PM

where do i start?
a flat chassis zenith color set
a sylvania superset e-45 or 48 chassis

'sylvania d-16 combo
dumont console with 30 inch crt
muntz color roundie
zenith porthole

newhallone 06-05-2011 10:54 PM

I think Mark (zenithfan1) has one he might part with, shoot him a PM.

bob91343 06-06-2011 12:08 AM

I am in Los Angeles and, while this isn't TV, maybe someone has for sale a ham radio transmitter, Johnson Viking Valiant. A friend wants one a lot.

Eric H 06-06-2011 12:25 AM

I've wanted a Crosley 10-401 Bakelite 10" set for a while, never can find a nice one locally.
