Having the off brands is my thing after all, having sets ranging from AMC, Setchell Carslon, Heathkit, Penncrest, and a few mainstream sets.
I still worry about the fly on the roundy clones...RCAs HV design tended to be an exercise in brinksmanship at worst and a case of not building in quite as much tolerance to real-world conditions as there should be at best...Many of the early 15 clones used RCA built chassis too so you got a real RCA, warts and all.

Very nice, I'm surprised didn't Wells Gardner make wards tv's for them? I suppose it would be a clone aswell, I have a 1968 AMC color made by wells gardener, it has the C3 chassis they also sold to Electrohome. Great quality. Has a Very beefy silicon flyback

Both Sears and Wards had more than one supplier for both domestic and Japanese TVs...They wanted a product at a price point on their shelves and achieved it thru supplier competition.

That makes since, also I have seen a rectangular Curtis Mathes with the ctc15 clone chassis, wouldn't mind one of those if it wasn't giant. When I was in high school the first tv I restored was a 58 Hoffman I found in a abandoned repair mans shop. The owner have me it, actually there was 2, one was in bad shape but has a good tube and the other was mint but necked, it came together great. I watched it for years with no real problem then sold it. So this color set is kinda neat to me cause I admired Hoffman's history, I actually got to meet the 58s owner and learned how they ended up in South Dakota! Next week I'm giving a 67 packard bell a new home so I guess my hoffman will have a California brother so to speak. Thank you both for the info btw

If you watched the earlier "All in the Family" episodes, they had a 23" B/W console, early 60's model Hoffman. It was just a prop. IIRC, an empty cabinet.
They never showed the front. As a complete set, it was a great set.

I remember the episode! Most of the B/W sets did.
Motorola was the only one that used 3A3's in their larger screen sets at the time.

Glad to see it being used, lots more will get new homes this spring. I'd rather have a couple old cars than 50 old tvs...
