This is one of a kind piece for collectors, museums and historians. The legendary collaboration between Ampex and Kudelski for the one inch broadcast color portable video recorder. SOLD TO AUSTRALIA

Classic, rare, fully restored, working, beautiful, unique
Philco Predicta TV set (50s)

It's 1958 again! Dwight Eisenhower was President, Elvis was back from the service, and theYankees played the Braves in the World Series. This 21"Philco Predicta Model was the first of the Predicta line, the first to feature a picture tube that would swivel 180 degrees! This "Holiday" model was introduced just before the holidays in 1958. This beautiful set has been electrically and cosmetically restored. The picture tube checks like new and delivers a sharp, bright picture. The paper capacitors and out-of-tolerance resistors have been replaced with new (that are better than the originals). All tubes either have been replaced with new or check like new. Other preventative measures, such as recoating the high voltage transformer with several coats of insulating materials-have been done. The chassis has been steam-cleaned and there is no dust. The set is shown playing an old movie from a DVD (there is no built in antenna). We supply a cable adaptor for watching new shows on either cable or local antenna.

External controls: Zoom, Focus and light sensitivity. Internal focus adjustments can enable it to do good close-up work. Included is a pistol-grip, control cable and Service Manual. The camera will mount on any standard tripod. Requires 18 Volts DC power and a 60Hz signal for synchronization (may be coupled by a capacitor from the power transformer)
