Zenith Color Roundie and Westinghouse B&W for Sale

Time to make some room. With my latest Philco projection set acquisition, I've about run out of space and need to sell a couple of sets. These sets are big and really need to be picked up locally.

The first set is a Zenith 25MC33 roundie color set from about 1966/67. It is complete and looks to be unmolested. It does have the back cover. The cabinet needs to be refinished, but does not appear to be water damaged or anything like that. I tried testing the CRT, but can't get the filaments to light. An ohmmeter indicates an open. I don't know if the filaments are really open or if the pins just need to be resoldered. My soldering iron wasn't big enough to get a good flow of solder into the pins. Free for local pick up.

The second set is a 1950 Westinghouse 12" B&W set that I purchased a few months ago from a fellow VK'er. I checked the CRT and it is weak, but not dead. Looks to be complete except for the channel selector knob and a couple of non-matching" knobs. I paid $100 and would like to try to get that for it.

PM me if interested. Thanks!

Bump. I had a local buyer for the Westinghouse B&W set, but the deal didn't work out, so here it is again.

Another bump. I'll be taking the Westinghouse set to the AARC indoor antique radio swap meet in Phoenix this coming Saturday if anyone in that area is interested. Also, I can bring the Zenith color set if someone is interested in it as well. The Zenith set is free for local pick up either in Tucson or at the Phoenix indoor antique radio swap meet....just let me know before Friday evening. Thanks!

If you get no takers on the roundie as a complete unit, I could sure use the back, chassis, yoke, and convergence assembly.....

I work out of West Bell Ave in Peoria

That's odd. When you said in an earlier post you work at home, I thought you were telecommuting from the Buffalo area and still lived there. Had no idea you actually work from the Phoenix area.

I do live in Buffalo, and work for a company in Phoenix. I work "out of" West Bell Ave in Peoria, not "at" there

Prolly should have explained that better, but I didn't want to thread crap.....

Can't quite bring myself to part it out. Would rather give it away whole.

Well....the roundie color set is no longer for sale. I just purchased another Zenith combo set on CL with a missing TV (it had a 25MC30), and the 25MC33 guts looks like it's going to go into that set.

Awesome! Glad to hear that you bought that set! The pictures from CL from your post didn't show the picture tube mask so I was wondering what might go in there.....

Can't say I like the idea of gutting one nice set to replace the missing parts in another, but with how cool that combo cabinet is relative to the stand-alone color set I would probably do the same in your shoes.

Ordinarily I wouldn't want to gut one set to fix another, but the combo set has an extremely nice cabinet and the stand-alone TV has a cheap masonite cabinet (probably the entry level set for that year) with fake wood grain and needs a lot of cabinet work.

I'll take some pix tomorrow and post a new thread in the early color TV section.

I think the only way the set would survive shipping would be to do it in three boxes. One for the cabinet, one for the chassis, and one for the CRT. Not sure how much it would cost, but I'd be willing to investigate.....
