A kind of swedish Predicta....

Hi Folks,

Today I like to introduce one of my swedish Luxor TVs.
The set is called "mirror" and was made in 1964.
It has VHF/UHF tuners and a big oval speaker in the front.

The set in the picture I bought to part out, just as a parts set.
I own the same in mint condition, but I was able to fix that set
in only 5 minutes, so I give it more time, just to teach the CRTs
for this set to work again after many voltageless years.

Boy, it is awful heavy!

These kind of Predicta-like sets were made in other countries, too.

Regards,
TV-collector

Very interesting! I have had many Predictas and have seen the French versions. That said I've never seen one like you posted even on the web.

What parts are you planning to take from the parts set in the picture? If your just taking chassis parts out of it maybe one of us in the states (maybe me) could buy the CRT and cabinet from you... It probably would not be too hard to stuff a Philco Predicta chassis in there to make it work without having to look for rare foreign parts or making a standards converter to drive the Swedish chassis...

Hi folks,

Sorry for the delay, I was not online for some weeks.
I will introduce more european "Predictas" in the future.

I can try to find another Luxor if there is an interest.
Next year, when the cold swedish winter is over.

I wanna keep closeby everything, and the cabin is not good of this set.

I have a serious shipper, so there is no problem.
It is only a question of money

Best regards,
TV-collector
