1954 Westinghouse Capri

Just out of curiosity, I have seen this model Westinghouse in numerous ads, but has anyone owned or worked on one in person? It's a neat mid century set on a swivel base, and wondered how many were made. Thanks, Matt.

It was my favorite Westinghouse of the bunch. Twin 5U4's, large power transformer. They outdid themselves on that model! The next year they started building the cheapie transformerless PC board jobs.
I've never seen one that wasn't missing the control cover.
