60's Arvin Color TV in Long Beach, CA - $120

Seller says 70s/80s, but looks 60s to me. Not sure. Not a lot of info on these, but from what I found, they were Japanese imports sold by Arvin. Seller says made in Japan.

Small tube in big cabinet, greenish face (probably sulfide phosphors) all point to 60s IMO. I wonder if it's tube or SS.

Looks a lot like a Sears-branded Toshiba, circa 1966. Some here knows.

That model, I don't remember seeing. It's a rather large cabinet for an 18" set.
It seemed to me that all the sets Arvin sold, after they started selling sets again in the early to mid-60's were Panasonic sourced, both B/W and color.
The 18" table model set was identical to the Penncrest or Singer.

I think they thought people would see the big cab and think...Wow! Great price on that TV! And not notice the teeny weeny screen....

Those mini consoles were great for smaller homes...A reasonable sized picture for a small living room in a stylish cabinet that would not eat up the whole wall.

If that set was close I'd be interested.

Exactly as "Electronic M" stated! I will add, I'm quite sure this Arvin is a Toshiba buit set, and yes, it would be fun to have! I enjoy the off-brands and the Sharp, Sanyo, Panasonic, and Toshiba sets.

The early Sanyo sets that were built for Sears and others were real dogs. The Sharps weren't much better. Now they both build a product that you can't wear out.
The first Toshibas had the large CRT neck like a roundie.
The set shown could also be an NEC.
Someone's going to have to buy it, to solve this mystery.

Hahahaha, I agree, "dieseljeep," someone needs to buy it and solve this mystery! If it were near me...I'd likely have it by now! In my daily TV Service Days, I saw several portable and table model Japanese sets, around here, but never any little "Consoles / Consolettes!" It's a cute little thing, IMO.
Hopefully, a collector will score it before it's trashed or becomes something other than a classic TV.
