Douglas TV in Santa Ana, CA - $50

Here's an uncommon Douglas TV, or at least part of one, in Santa Ana, CA.

https://offerup.com/item/detail/402385393

The only info I could find is an ARF thread from 2012 which shows one with a similar cabinet, but a chairside phono/tuner.

http://antiqueradios.com/forums/view...p?f=3&t=195959

The CRT in the Santa Ana one appears to be larger, and the chairside unit is nowhere to be found. But unsure if this one is supposed to have a chairside phono/tuner.

There are no obvious controls on the SA set, if it's missing the tuner section it's pretty much a parts set.

Is there a possibility that the set was built by Conrac?
They built products like that.
No tears, if that thing is fishtanked.

That depends on the circuits that are on the chairside chassis.
If all they did is remote mount the Brightness, Contrast and Hold pots with tuner, IF and audio, and the main cabinet has the meat of the sweep and video circuits then it would not be much work to make it into a composite video monitor. But this is only speculative.

Don't see these that often. The one linked in the antiqueradios.com, is mine. I still have it and still haven't worked on it, yet.

The controls and tuner are located in the chairside section. Has a long cord that plugs into the TV and the chairside table.

I wouldn't mind getting this, if anything for the original paperwork that he is claiming is with it.

Hey, that's great! Best of luck for a safe and enjoyable trip. For what it's worth, I believe the one in SA has the 27RP4 CRT. The size of the tube looks larger and the mask different compared to your prior post. Good luck!

So I made the 700 mile round trip yesterday and got the Douglas TV. I'll start a new post tomorrow with pictures of it.
