And the guy that is selling it is the original owner apparently! Someone should pick it up for me and bring it down here, so I can hook it to my VHF modulator and hook a DVD player to it !

Oh wow, that AWA is a real beauty! Once again, it is in Victoria! I don't know why, but it seems as if 90% of all vintage televisions end up in Melbourne or general Victoria. It's annoying as all heck!

I agree with you Chris. I've been looking for a 1950s TV that works for a while!

I live in Vic, so yeah...its not too bad to get them. Must have been a lot of sets here in the day, plus the weather is probably more conducive to keeping them intact? I have one of these, but it is missing the plasic 'cup' over the CRT if anyone has on - or a complete back.

I don't know if it's the weather or simply a greater hoarding instinct for TVs.

Probably due to the hoard factor as much as anything. Victoria tends to have more vintage items available for sale than any other state, including radios, dining settings, gramophones and the like and this is probably why all the clubs are based there.

FFS I wish I lived in Victoria! So I can scrounge the city for TVs then move back to NSW :d

Come over in spring, that's when the old sets start appearing on the verges and rubbish tips. Last month we had five mono sets arrive at Daylesford tip, three Astors, an HMV, and a Thorn.
