They grow 'em big in Texas

I never imagined a combo looking quite like that. Unfortunately the seller thinks he has a gin-ewe-wine antique like at the antique mall.

I didn't think it was a Westinghouse. Must've been one of their last!
Curtis Mathes made them even larger.

One of these languished for years in a local antique mall. I came close to buying it when they finally dropped the price to $45. Not sure if it ever found a home or just got junked.

I already feel my back ache just looking at that set.Also can imagine trying to get it around the corners going up to the 2rd floor APT.Need a fork lift to load it into the delivery truck.She said everything works.If it has a good CRT.$200 bucks would be good.

Yes, despite MadMan's ridiculing the asking price, the condition, rarity, and the absolutely dominating presence of this beast justifies that it should be worthy of at least that amount.

Now if it had been a color roundie in there, I'd have jumped on it even at a 2-3 times higher price.

But it has no obvious reel to reel tape recorder! No aircraft carrier
is complete without one.

I like that it has all front opening components. That makes it easy to put other things on top of it, without being in the way when you want to play the stereo.
