Searching for a philco full dress console

SEARCHING FOR A PHILCO FULL DRESS CONSOLE!!!

In any condition folks!!

come to find out my very elderly grandmother (87) had one of those back in the day and her seeing a full dress ad I recently purchased, has her asking every time I visit the home if I’ve found “the most valuable piece of my collection”!? she’s very in and out with early onset Alzheimer’s but I wanna be able to tell her I found this & show her!!

IN A PERFECT WORLD SHED LIVE TO SEE IT RESTORED!

MY ONLY PLAN IS TO RESTORE AND LOVE IT!

TOP DOLLAR PAID


-Blake Hinkle


(I have several philco sets id be willing to trade if that makes its more interesting for anyone)

Never heard that name applied to any philco.

Might help to post a picture and or model number.

This ad, just posted on the Predicta thread shows the “full dress” model, which looks good from either side.

One of my neighbors had one and it was badged "Predicta".
It had the better chassis with the transformer and 5U4, but the same lousy CRT.
It was a sharp looking set. I don't remember if it had the channel selector knob that popped up to turn the set. It was neat but another trouble source.

Yeah you guys are all right on the money! This is one in real life that turned up on google!


I have the black and white ad mentioned above! Looking for one in any condition in the worst way!
