For Sale Motorola Color Tube console
 
I have an early rectangular Motorola tube color console for sale.TV works as found,but should
be gone over.I think the CRT was replaced as the tube looks to be installed slightly crooked (as seen in the pic).The "Drexel" cabinet is fairly good condition too.Asking $50 More pix at http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/f...er66/motorola/

That isn't the Motorola most VKer's knock. It's a 28 tube deluxe model. I cant describe the color circuit, but it's their own design and seemed to perform fairly well. That was my first color set. We ran it for a solid nine years, when that wonderful 23EGP22 started to look pretty washed out. Probably only needed about six or eight tubes in all that time. How many owners can boast that they had a set that never needed a flyback or any component replacements. When I scrapped the set, it still had the original 6JM6 horizontal output tubes. The reason I scrapped it, is because it was in a flood, due to a sewer backup.

yes i am 5 minutes to liberty.

timmy 08-29-2011 08:03 AM

ok. could you find out how much more and if he would because where i live is on the way to liberty i am 2 miles off exit 102 on 17 he would probably use exit 101 or 100. and you said you want 50.00 for the set? i forgot to ask does the set work and or does it need anything that you know of ?

"Timmy" is now the new caretaker of the color Motorola.Good luck with it

timmy 09-03-2011 03:07 PM

hello again mr pat, the sams says 12 1966 so would this set be from that year or was the same model made 2 years in a row.and the crt will have to come out as it has some issues under the safety glass and dont know yet if its bonded or not , but ill find out for sure. have you seen my other set, 1963 silvertone roundie, that set kicked my butt but got it done and plays wonderful. you can find it under silvertone there is an attachment there.

That was one of the last of that model. They quit building that chassis in mid 1966. Several variations of that chassis were built between 1963 and 1966. The TS907 was simular but used a round CRT. Their first rectangular set used the earlier version of the TS908. About the same time they built a el-cheapo roundy that was a series string, with a bunch of odd-tubes. That was a TS912 and used that funky color circuit used in the newer models. Only that one used a 15LE8.

That late of a model uses a automatic deguasser themo switch and a few minor changes. That date of manufacture is shown such as 6M66, with the "M" being their bat wing logo.

timmy 09-03-2011 09:08 PM

so its probably 1966.

timmy 09-05-2011 07:21 PM

well got the crt straightened out, was not as easy as it should have been since the corners were way off and had to take out and install somewhere around 9 times until i got the corners right then it fit fine.there is a slight amount of cataracts around the edge but really cant see it and with the tube lined up with the outside trim it hides more. this motorola is much more complicated then the simple ctc12. does anyone know where or if there is a service switch for the color set up?

seems like you know this set, would you know where the sevice switch is to set up the color drives?

bgadow 09-05-2011 10:59 PM

I have a table model Motorola that is a little newer and it doesn't have a switch, which makes it harder to do a good setup. But I can't speak for this model.
