1970 Zenith metal cabinet tube B&W TV CHICAGO

Just a heads up for any of you in the Chicago area this weekend.

I'll be bringing down a few TVs to the ARCI Radiofest in Addison, IL. Not sure which ones yet, but this big Zenith will be one of 'em.

I found this set recently, still playing through a converter box in a local estate. They had the set on during the sale, and I have done no work to it. Not even clean off the dust. Comes with the original stand as I found it. Controls are a bit fussy, but once set, the TV has a great picture and sound.

Radiofest details can be seen here: http://www.antique-radios.org/radiofest_2016_info.html

I'll be in the NW corner of the seller's lot, spaces 40-47.

If Doug passes then I'll take it. I've been wanting one, but it is big and not high on my list, and 14N22s from the 70's are not exactly the hardest sets to find...Say don't you have 2-5 of those Doug? If you have duplicates of one of the more common paint colors that came in I'd buy it from you.

IIRC, they had three model levels in regards to the tuners, used with those chassis, even in the metal cabinet models.
I've seen Oak, Standard coil and Zenith GVG. Naturally the GVG was the best.
IIRC, mine has the Oak.

Thanks Jim!

I don't have any of these early 70's 14N22 table sets. The consoles I had with this chassis have been given to other collectors in the past. I've been looking for a nice table model for the collection though.

I assume this one will probably have the cheaper Oak tuner since it doesn't have illuminated channel dials.

I'm almost sure, Zenith made those models, both consoles and table models until the 1973 model year. The last ones came through with Clinton CRT's.

This is certainly a tail end unit since it's a "D" line model number making it a "1973" set. However, going by production date, the run number shows it as being made the 8th week of 1972 at the Dickens plant in Chicago.

Shoot...If I'd known it was a 1973 model I would not have backed away (I was hoping for a later one than 1970)....Now I'm kinda disappointed.

You can't have them all!
You scored a really nice Predicta, even though, the CRT is sick.
That is the only one, I would tollerate. Those lousy transformerless models, don't do anything for me.

To me the predicta is all about the cabinet. I like the wood ones (mostly series string chassis) better than the metal, but if the price is right I'll take any of them.
Mine is a hotel model, and the CRT heater is open...I'm thinking of trying to re-weld the heater with B+ boost from a color set (after I ohm check what I tested with a CRT tester). If it's heater is open I have nothing to loose trying something crazy...
