RCA Accucolor in central TX

It's $25, and produced a good looking raster of snow when I turned it on (it was plugged in). I was tempted because it was branded "Accucolor Solid State" rather than XL-100, but I'm trying to thin things down, and I already have an example of RCA's upright modular chassis.

It must be an early model because and it has the CTC-40 style control panel and tilt out door. The only difference was the ACM button and light in the channel window.

The house was a total time capsule. It looks like they bought virtually nothing after the mid 70's. Even the original velvet wallpaper was mint.

I WISH I could find something like this locally. It seems impossible to find a nice early 70's RCA around here!

My aunt had that same model for years, and it provided very reliable service. The jug finally went weak in about 1996, and I sold her a new Zenith.
