Hi to VK, here's our new boondoggle aka old color TV!

Hi from Sue (& my hubs, Roger) in Central NY! We love old things of any kind, and not too long ago we got a tube stereo with help from AudioKarma. That's how we found out about this place, and got the idea to acquire this old TV beastie. We think it's a Zenith from about 1966, but that's just a guess. Neither of us had color TV growing up in the '50s & '60s, so color was a must on the theory that it's never too late to have a happy childhood!

It's not coming for a week or 2, but according to the seller it's a model 15331-U. We don't know the chassis type (anyone?) we see here on other posts that chassis number & information is needed for finding service information and manuals. It's a bit bigger set than some that we've seen.

At this point all we know is that it sort-of works, as you can see at least the picture tube does light up green. Other than that we expect to soon find out if this thing will be a fun project (with lots of help!) or a gigantic boondoggle; hopefully not the latter!! Hubs has worked on some radios and he put together kits in the '60s, so at least he can solder, and now being retired he has lots of time! So hello! I just hope this wasn't a giant mistake, we really want to watch the old shows of our childhood on a TV from the same time... See the USA in your Chevrolet... !

Happy Motoring!!
