WANTED: 1967 Admiral Portable TV and TV Cart for Larry Walters Documentary

Hi! I'm a filmmaker looking for a 1967 Admiral Portable TV for a documentary about Larry Walters, the 1982 Lawnchair Balloon Pilot. Larry had a TV like this, and I am trying to recreate his apartment for a scene.

Photo of Larry's TV and TV Cart attached.

Has anyone seen one of these TVs and/or Carts?

I also welcome thoughts on trying to assemble the parts to make a TV that looks like this from various parts...

Info on our documentary about Larry is here:

Thanks for any leads!

The set is a 19" B&W. They were very common & the style was
made for quite a few years. It should be relatively easy to find
a close looking one. The stand is another story. Admiral packed
a free stand with many sets & they were JUNK. So bad we
wouldnt assemble one for a customer ! So look for a similar stand.
Gusdorf made similar ones but beefier........
Good luck with your project.
