Looks very stylish to me. I quite like it because it's different.
Cabinet is a bit rough in places.

What don't you like about them Pete ?


This Pye is also on eBay

A bit rare this model. Aussie GE (Kirby), TE108 integrated TV-Radio-Stereo chassis. Bass and treble tone controls. Chassis a bit crowded, confused and hard to work on, you really needed that schematic!

I have the schematic and a good 23" CRT if you decide to make a bid

I think its ugly Steve and does not have any looks about , But this, of course, is just IMO and we are all different in this world .. apparently po6097 chassis number? I have nothing on such a number so it may not be right? either way I'm not buying I listed here in case someone else would like it . But really To Restore a TV properly is a huge job, Cabinet, Chassis, so its best to only fix ones you really really like .

Pete

It's said that camel is a horse designed by a committee. The same committee might have designed that Crosley.

That's very true Pete

It's nice but I don't love it

I'll stick with my HMV

IMO thats wise ,, haha,, I love radiograms but not all ! I only like Valves and mostly I only like Kriesler. I would not want Solid State ,So if I come across a good ol Kriesler I might bring it home and put it with the rest of them but nothing else., Its kinda the same with Tellies the early ones are great and your HMV is one of them ,,,But some of the 60s models are ugly .and the chassis lost their appeal to me

Yeah I understand Pete

I don't like anything post 1970

It's nostalgia for me as I remember TV's and Radiograms in people's houses when I was a child.
I used to love lying on the floor watching telly. You can't do that with flat screens !!

I'm not opposed to solid state as long as the unit is aesthetically pleasing.
Valves are preferable

My HMV TV Radiogram is a 1969 model and the TV still has valves.
The rest is solid state

GTC , Have you ever Ridden I Camel ??

No, and I'm not inclined to, for all of the reasons that you mention. They are called the ships of the desert and that's where they belong.

As a kid, this was always one of my favourite cartoons.

Whoa Camel!

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

If I was going to have a TV radio gram that takes up a good deal of space it would have to be very stylish, and that one isn't.
Mid 60's sets just became very boxy with plastic escutcheons.
I much prefer the 50's look.

Crisp rectilinear lines in the 1960's "split-level" style. Would complement a split-level house of that era, which narrows potential buyers.
