FS: Pair of PortaColors

(Sorry for upside down photos, not sure why that happens upon upload)

I'm working to thin down my collection to my few favorites. I have two tube PortaColor sets at various levels of working I'm looking to sell as a lot.

The models are M213BWD and M224HWD?

As far as condition and status, I've done no repairs on either set, though I took the backs off and did some looking around. I would strongly recommend replacing at least the filter caps before extended use.

The M224HWD seems like the later model of the two. The set does work and produce a decent image. Sound works well and doesn't have any external damage, though there is some fading of the fake woodgrain finish.

The M213BWD (has the lights behind the channel indicators) looks like an earlier set. This one has a broken antenna, is missing the UHF knob, and The UFH shaft is damaged. Also has paint stains on the back. This one tunes produces an image and you can faintly make out the program, but you can't tune it in well.

Because of the condition of the M213BWD I am selling these as a lot. Despite the knob layout differences I believe the chassis are essentially the same. Choose the one you like the most and use both to fix it, or fix both.

I am asking $200 OBO for the pair. I am located in the far west suburbs of Chicago. Because of fragility I will not ship. Post or PM with questions.

Hey, MR Carlson! This is right up your alley!
Snatch them up, before the flippers get them.

Tempting, but I've already got a minty one with matching stand (stand was a separate lucky thrift find) the same model as the one with the bad UHF shaft. Mine only cost me $60 from a fellow collector...I just don't want them bad enough to pay $200 and gas drive to Chicago.
