Zenith 19" color SC 500

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-tabl...item46357f8364

I've been looking for one just like this, a Zenith 19" color with the 4-tube hybrid chassis and the remote. They seem to be pretty rare, but not only is this one overpriced, it's local pickup only...

Not only over priced but the wrong hand unit too.
Not many sold. Maybe one out of 25 19".
Look for SD1950W
The one shown is a C line IIRC. Maybe a SC1950 but dont
remember. Also dont remember if there was a B line remote,
I started at C line........
Good luck

You're sure the hand unit is incorrect? I thought the chromed ones came out for '73, and that the SC500 was first introduced for '72.

Oh ya.. wayyyyy overpriced.
I would concur with Zeno tho. The remote units must not have sold well. I've never seen one in a 4-tube hybrid. My Uncle took over an existing Zenith dealer in 71 or 72, and I never saw one in the shop. The 4 tubes were pretty tough sets, but I do remember when they did come in for service. it always seemed to be a focus divider or tripler. That's odd that the model listed doesn't have the "Chromatic" auto color, so you would assume a lower end set, but.. with remote.

If he were local I'd offer 70$ and see if he bites.

Yes no chromatic on it. IIRC that came out in D line.
The remotes were $75-$100 more so not many. I think I
saw more 16" remotes ( SC100 ) probably because they were more of
a bedroom set.
The hybrid was a tough set physically but had a long list of
common & easy problems. Never had one that we had to call Zenith
about. Very predictable & thats a good thing.

Pretty sure but I could be wrong, wont be the first or last time !
'73 is D-line. The B or C line may have used that style but it dont
look right to me. Gotta remember also many folk that had remote
sets had more than one. Hand units often migrated when the dog
ate one. We also kept a box of old remotes & gave them away to
good customers. Didnt matter if the function match as long as
it worked.

I know they are small remotes, but I can't imagine even a large dog passing a space command remote without some surgery....
