But it's not Playboy Pink like the rest of the stuff.
Wonder if that's a Philco, they made the little Mustang set.

Speak for your self!

The cabinet of the TV reminds me of Silvertone, but the tuning knobs don't ring any bells. Perhaps it is a rarer store brand like Bradford or Penncrest.

If the TV & the car are still around, they're likely in better shape than SHE is..

Admiral didn't announce plans to make color tubes until August of 64
https://books.google.com/books?id=GU...istory&f=false

So, that roundie probably had an RCA tube (sulfide phosphors, you can tell by the screen color) and might actually be a long-lived one. Admiral-built color tubes had a poor reputation. They offered a 3 year warranty on their CRTs (not including labor), and apparently it was needed.

Indeed, she died April 11, 2004 at the age of 58.
