The RCA sets that were sold in a market where UHF channels were used, had a factory equipped UHF tuner.
The aftermarket tuner kits supplied by RCA were rather unique as the VHF tuner didn't have a UHF input. The tuner kit was actually a converter that fed into the IF, in place of the VHF tuner with a switching arrangement that selected between the two tuners. It was a very costly method of doing it.
The other major manufacturers did it a lot simpler.

Why does it having UHF matter to you enough to not get a set? In this day in age it is easier to feed a set VHF.

Because I like the looks of the vertical Vhf/UHF channel selector.. Part of the reason why I would probably choose a 60s set over a CT100 any day.. I've got to be very picky as I have no room, and really have no room for this one.. So most likely I will pass on it unless there's a way to ad a UHF selector..
