Zenith Mayflower Porthole $50

Comes complete with massive amounts of rust.
The cabinet doesn't look flood damaged so maybe just a damp environment"?

I know, I've been looking for a couple years for that volume knob.

I wouldn't be too sure about that. Take a look at this cabinet.



It was submerged to the very top when my basement flooded in 2009. This picture was taken in 2012. By the most fortunate of coincidences,the chassis was not in it at the time. The Zenith doesn't appear to have been similarly fortunate.

Always liked that model. If I was local I'd throw down the opening bid and see what happens.

Get done with the Naval Jelly and there probably wouldn't even be a chassis left!

I need all of those knobs, and one of those control doors. And if the CRT turns out to be good, it'd be a good deal. It's only about an hour and a half away. I might bid on it if it doesn't go too high.

It's probably a parts set at best. I wouldn't count on the CRT being any good. I've had terrible luck with Rauland and National Union CRTs from this era; much more than an RCA, Sylvania, or DuMont CRT.

I see some delamination inside the cabinet so underwater at some time might be a correct assumption.
