Cleaning house. Free sets!
 
I am out of room, I'm getting rid of a lot of stuff. I need the space to work on and store my early color sets and nice keepers. I am giving away the following: 1968 Magnavox color set in a beautiful cabinet with sliding doors on the front (not a combo) It has a small busted spot on the front that can be fixed. It also has a tired but working CRT. Set plays with a greenish picture. No rejuvenation was tried so you might get lucky. Next, a perfect working 1953 Sentinel that is un restored. Needs a channel knob and has a few scratches, overall looks nice. Has doors on the front. Strong bright CRT. Also giving away a blonde 1957 Zenith 21" console w/ swivel base. Finish is bad on top, CRT showing it's age but the set works. Next on the chopping block is a 1950 Admiral combo, rectangular screen of about 15" Am Fm phono. Cabinet needs a ton of work but might be fun for someone. I was going to tackle it but just no time or space. Electronics are unknown on the Admiral. 1965 Zenith roundie cabinet only, french provincial. Needs refinishing. I have the bezels too if needed. Originally had the 25MC33 chassis. I might have more, these are what I can think of off the top of my head. I'll post more if I find any. Please come to Kenosha and take this stuff away before I make another trip to the dumpster behind Dollar Tree. Just be careful and stay away from the fat girls wandering around in pajamas.

Hi Mark,
Any idea what CRT is in that 1950 Admiral?

P.S. Thanks for the warning :lmao:

Ha, I always had a thing for girls like that!

I'll be quiet now!

Hey Bob, I'll check and see if I can dig the Admiral out. It's kinda buried at the moment. Also, I think it takes a damn fine girl to look good wandering around dressed like that. I don't know why so many do it around here. It sucks because it's all the wrong girls doing it. LOL. I think, a nice ass has a good jiggle in pants like that. Now, I'll be quiet too :D

Thanks - no rush. If you know the model #, I might be able to answer my own question.

1968 Magnavox
 
Hello, I know a person in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for I know who can get the 1968 Magnavox and those other sets you want to scrap for me-it's Colin at 1 414 383-3348 in Milwaukee-thanks:-) He's mainly interested in the 1968 Magnavox color set with the sliding doors-thanks and much appreciated.
That's Colin at 1 414 383-3348 in Milwaukee-thanks:-)

Thanks,
Derek.

I hope he can get them this weekend, it's the last chance before the hammer comes out. I'll give him a call tomorrow. Thanks for the interest, I really don't like smashing them......well, sometimes I do:D

Electrohome 11-06-2009 01:23 PM

Your best bet to call Colin is between 8 PM and 1 AM-Thanks
 
Your best to call Colin is after 8 PM between 8 PM and 1 AM is your best bet.
Thanks:-)

Sorry Derek, I called and he said he has no room and I have no time. I need the space. Trust me, this stuff isn't worth all that effort anyways. I decided to keep the Admiral but the Zenith, Zenith cabinet and the effed up Maggie gotta GO! I think I'll save the safety glass from the Maggie CRT for my '66 Silvertone POS that has it missing from a CRT rebuilder. If anyone needs a '68 Maggie chassis, let me know. I have 2. I also have an early SS Maggie chassis. I'll keep digging, there's more crap in there I just know it.

I might be interested in the 57 Zenith. Do you know what crt it takes? I have an uncle in Milwaukee but he does not drive. But he has a garage that it can sit in till I make it down that way. So I guess it would depend on whether or not my 21yp4a would work in it, and if someone would be willing to drop it off at my uncles. And if you still have it. :)

zenithfan1 11-23-2009 04:56 PM

I still have it and would love for you to save it, I saved it at an estate sale about 7 years ago and would hate to see it in that dumpster. I'll dig it out over the Thanksgiving break and see what tube it takes. The set works but needs a recap and the CRT is dim. The finish isn't so great either. I used to watch nascar on it when I had rummage sales at my Mom's place back in the day.

The '53 Sentinel is also still available to whomever wants it. I paid 40 bucks a while back for it but I'd rather just give it away and be done with it.....any takers?? Could be a very nice set.
