KCS160 RCA b/w portable(mom and dad had one when I was a baby and early childhood)

A specific model Montgomery Wards 1950s Hi Fi console w/ VM changer,Mahogany in color,gray speaker cloth,record compartment on right.
(A long shot I'm sure as I have no idea what model but if I saw it I would instantly recognize it as my mom's hifi from her teenage years until I was 8 yrs old)

so if anybody has a Montgomery Wards Hifi send me pictures.I'll even pay to have the right one shipped.Send sams folder pictures too. It will help me identify it and I'll buy the Sams if that's it.Watching my aunt work on that unit sparked my interest in electronics and my mom's many hours of playing it got me interested in music.

Unfortunately 1 of the reasons she parted with it was the scratches from me walking on it in my baby shoes as a baby. I didn't know any better back then I guess. If I can find the old picture of me as a small child playing in front of it I'll try to scan it.

And definitely a CT100...lol.

Been searching for years for an RCA model RP-21 console record player. Parents had one when I was growing up. I'd consider any model with the "V" and "evil eye" in the upper right corner. Spooked the hell out of me when I was a kid

I guess I should post mine...

Fairly common sets, but not ones I've seen for a long time:

CTC40 TransVisa
CTC22 15" portable
CTC36 19" table top
CTC19 or CTC27 19" table top
Sony KV-1210U
Sony KV-4000
Philco Safari with intact visor
RCA 8" portable such as 8PT7034

Less common, but have shown up occasionally in the wrong place/price:

RCA G2000
GE Portacolor II
Sony KVX-370 Indextron

Pie in the sky stuff that everyone is looking for:

Any 50's color TV, preferably with 21AXP22, 15GP22, or other early CRT
Sony KV-7010

Wish list. A Farnsworth GV260, also Farnsworth/Capehart 10 inch console.
A Dumont RA-102 Clifton, A Prewar TRK5 or TRK9.
A 7 inch Transvision. A Viewtone Chassis for my Viewtone 7 inch console cabinet
A Viewtone tabletop, A 1954 or 1955 color set.
I have over 85 sets and am have been thinking what my 100th set will be!

How do peope update this list? It would be a good list to give to our spouses and kids in case they want to get rid of our stuff when we're gone.

I got a 1951 RCA b/w console for sale,not flawless but nice. Model 17T172 has been converted to a 20" glass tube which has good emissions and the set produced a full white raster so the flyback is good. Have changed out all the shorted and weak tubes. Set needs recapping and possible resistors.
The only problem is distance. I'm in Maryland.

I have a near mint RCA Selectavision VET250 VCR with the instructions, simplified instruction cards, and extra channel blanks for the display. Works great. In fact, I got it from an AK member many many moons ago. I *just* pulled it out of service because I had no room atop the living room Colortrak 2000 for it. Like maybe a month ago.

Is that the model you mean?

Okay, mine:

1. A 21" Silvertone Black and White console from the mid-60's

2. An early 23" Motorola Quasar WITD in an Early American Pecan Cabinet

3. A 1970's 25" RCA XL100 (early MA-series modules, CTC-?? ) in the Danish Modern Walnut cabinet with speakers on each end. I always loved the style - very symmetrical looking.

1 and 2 are childhood sets - moon landing/first color set we had.

3 is just a fave.

Good CRTs are a must, 'cuz I've got all the other parts needed to fix any of them.

I've got very little room for any of the above, but if the price was right....

Cheers,

I have a surplus Sony KV-1204 if that is close enough. Currently not working, but the tube is good.

late 60s zenith portable tube color tv in metal cabinet.
Chromacolor II horizontal chassis TV
CTC-7 or CTC-9 set with the nice "C O L O R" logo on the crt mask
GE 13"(?) color portable (looks like a slightly larger portacolor)

I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them at the moment.

Can you post a photo of what that model looks like?
I've seen several RCA's with the round tuning eye before and will keep a look out for you.

A few more I thought of are that RCA coffee table set, and a Sylvania Halolite in a modern cabinet.
