I own a CTC-4 Director 21

A friend and I had the score of a lifetime while in Michigan. VK user BigDavesTV informed us of an estate sale in Saginaw that had some items of great interest, including a CT-100 and a 21AXP22 set. The three of us took the trip up there and had great luck finding some very rare sets. We got the CT-100 and the CTC-4 for $25 each, and the 21AXP22 tests like brand new. No word in the 15GP22 yet. I'll be dragging the CTC-4 back to Alabama to begin the restoration process. It does make a raster, but the horizontal and vertical are both way off.

I DO NOT OWN THE CT-100. NEITHER OF THE TWO SETS ARE FOR SALE.

Holey mackeral...And here I thought the $500 I paid for my CT-100 was a steal. If the CRT is bad I'd gladly quadrupple (maybe more) your money to have it for parts.

It looks like you have a blond cabinet version channel knob on your mahogany CTC-4...I have a Mahogany color channel knob on my blond CTC-4...Wanna trade channel knobs?

I paid $150 for my first CT-100, and $100 for my second. I guess early color TV prices really are falling!

IIRC you're low on space... if you're interested I'd be willing to trade my blonde table model CTC4 Seville for that CTC4 director console you just got.

Oh. Em. Gee. I'd call that the score of a lifetime.

Congratulations!
