Vintage televisions

Philco Predicta Continental, as delivered. 98% complete but dismantled, with heavy weather damage. The owner of this set, John Fowlie of Big M Automotive, had obtained it from another gentleman who had picked it up in front of the Capri Motel in Williams, CA some time in the 90s during the motel’s renovation. With the best of intentions, he had set about dismantling the the TV in order to restore it, at which point it was decided to be much too large a project and was given to John. It sat dismantled for around two decades until the he was able to connect with us in order to bring it back to new condition. It seemed to have quite a bit of weather & water damage and the front plastic faceplate was badly scratched and damaged. Before and after full restoration:
