Smile 1978 Eaton Viking 10" Portable 8761-10C Color CRT

Hi guys,

Just got this 1978 Eaton Viking 10" Portable 8761-10C Television a few days ago from the original owner, for FREE !
It is a thing a beauty ! It also comes with original manuals.
I think it is a very rare TV because it was sold by a Canadian Company Eaton's.
It is made in Japan as well.

PICS:

It's probably the same as the Ward's and Western Auto sets of the time. They were made by Sharp. Great little set and good find.
Most of the Vikings I've seen were Canadian Admirals, B/W of course.

I believe most of the early Vikings were made by Electrohome. In the color era,
Electrohome production shifted to JVC for a number of years (and the same
presumably happened with Eaton's house brand), before going to various other
Japanese manufacturers, as this example. Good luck!

Back in the 1970's I recall Electrohome selling a knock-off the Zenith Avanti white fiberglass consolette (with false walnut trim) colour set north of the border...
