Have a look at the Videokarma forum from the States.
Those sets feature prominently with some lovely restorations.
They have far more resto candidates to choose from much earlier periods than in Aus.
They had colour back in the 50's.

I routinely have a peek at Videokarma as there are some very good restorers there.
There's a chap called Christ Riggot on there who does absolutely amazing restorations.
He labels every component on the chassis with its circuit notation then replaces all capacitors and resistors after having thoroughly cleaned the chassis.
By the time he's finished the sets look better than new both cabinet and chassis and work perfectly.
He is fastidious.
An inspiration.
Definitely worth a look.
