GE 806 Television

Hello All,

I'm new to the list, so I hope this is posted in the right place...

I have a vintage 1949 806 GE black and white TV.

It was a gift from an old TV and radio guy from years ago. It was last used about 10 years back. At that time the television was working fine although the picture was faint. I had it hooked to some old rabbit ears and I was about 65 miles away from the nearest TV broadcast staton, so that may have something to do with it, or not!

The wood cabinet is unrestored, but it's all there, nice and solid. There is no veneer peel, so it should look as good as new if refinished. The knobs and glass front are all there as well. No chips to the glass, the knobs are nice, but would need some soap and a toothbrush.

The "buttons" attaching the glass at the top of the set are there. The metal speaker faceplate needs cleaning, but none of the ribs are broken.

The original paper tag is still attached to the bottom of the set.

The only glitch in the appearance is the back covering (looks like it was made from compressed cardboard) has broken so it will need repair.

Overall, this would be an excellent restoration candidate.

I have no idea what this would be worth, so I'm open to any offers. It weighs around 50 pounds and would be shipped from Florida, so factor that into your offer.

Please eMail me at Thanks much!
