Not to take away anything from Bob's absolutely beautiful Wingate restoration because he did a fantastic job. It's an outstanding example of the early color tv technology, and I surely don't want to hijack his thread, but I'd like to respectfully suggest that the "Super" chassis, although technically not as desirable as the Deluxe version, was certainly capable of producing a very good color picture.

Take a look at this screen shot.....

Not bad for a Super chassis....

I agree Bob. That is a GREAT picture. I have a Super in a blonde cabinet also, but I have not reatored it yet. Perhaps some day. My next project will be a Hallicrafter CTC4 clone that needs extensive rebuilding of the cabinet.
