Return to the days when Mary Tyler Moore tossed her hat into the pristine Minnesota air. Move on up to the East Side with the Jeffersons and place this funky boob tube in your own "deluxe" apartment.
Packard Bell Teledyne manufactured this groovy portable TV in the 1970's. This style and color is a rare commodity today. I am offering this TV as a non-working decorative item or prop. It would make a fabulous period piece in your retro-themed space.
This TV is 15" long, 10" deep at its widest, and 10" tall at its highest point. It weighs 13 pounds. It boasts a 39" telescoping antenna and a sleek retractable handle for easy transport from crib to crib when you move. The color is a quintessential orange with white piping and silver colored control knobs. There is slight color loss to some of the white piping. There is a small pock mark to the right of the upper controls which is the result of heat contacting the plastic case at that point. One of the plastic pieces for holding the wound up electrical cord is missing. See pictures for these minor flaws. Again, this TV is sold as a period decorating piece or a prop. It does not work. There is no picture or sound.
Older TVs can be fitted with new electronics to make them workable today, and many have been re-done to make them operable as game consoles; but I am not an expert in these areas and make no claim that this TV could definitely be transformed in either of these ways.
If you are down with this situation, if you can dig it, then get stoked because when your neighbors ask, "What's happenin?" you can show them where it's at. Get down and boogie or say, "Good night, John boy." Either way, you have it covered.
Just a reminder that this is a prop or decorative piece only. It does not work in its current condition.
