Hi All,

I am new to collecting Vintage TV's this is my first. Normally I collect old newspapers so I have jumped to electronic age.

I was wondering if you could help me identify my purchase & advise if it is of any value.
Either way I love it.. but would like to know more.

Thanks for your help.

Photos uploaded. This is a Kriesler and it looks like the lettering that spells out the brand are missing from the standoffs just below the picture tube.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

This TV looks like a 1963 Kriesler Clockmatic Super Fringe model 121-71.

It would of been a top of the range set for its day.

What he said!

Note that Kriesler eschewed cheap plastic in favour of diecast metal.

A good TV and well worth restoring to working order if the CRT is OK. Do you have the remote for it?

I hope you didn't plug the TV in??? It will need to be brought up gently (with a dim bulb tester) but being a 1963 model may not need a full re-cap.
