If it wasn't for pickup only in Seattle I'd bid to have both colors.

Hmm, I'm seeing only $52.54 to ship it:

I got this one. I had been eyeing it all week. I've had a lot of the different Zenith 12" B&W sets, but never one of these. Now we'll have to see if it survives shipping from WA.

I’m not a Zenith guy. What’s the attraction of this particular model?

It's the first all transistor set Zenith produced, made starting in '65. Here's a pic of the chassis (not mine). And a link to a commercial Zenith made for them on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-teXC1mFKaQ

So you're the one that got it...I was going to get it if there was no competition.
I've at least got the rarer white cabinet variant so not getting this one is no skin off my nose.

These were also 2X as expensive as a tube Zenith the same screen size, and made in limited quantity...There may be more CT-100s still in existence. IIRC there were issues manufacturing the hand wired IF system.
These were one of ~2-3 hand wired all SS Zenith TV chassis before they went to the PCB based duramodules.

The TV arrived intact. I turned it on - no HV. I haven't really looked into it yet.

Glad to hear (read) the set arrived in Wisconsin from Washington state unscathed.

Did that model have a tube HV rectifier such as a 1X2, 2AV2, etc.? If so, I'd check that tube first. I can't imagine much else going wrong in that model Zenith except the flyback or the horizontal oscillator/output stage. Like tube TVs, if either of those stages stop for any reason, so will the CRT 2nd anode voltage. Another possibility could be the horizontal hold control, which could be the horizontal oscillator coil itself. If it has been turned past either of its end stops, the horizontal oscillator will run far off frequency, possibly, even likely, so far off as to kill the HV entirely.
