I pulled this off a craigslist posting.
The guy restores old TVs and radios but is
too busy to tweak this one.

was HI-TECH at the time. People must have been so proud to have one of those. Truly a luxury at one time.

The famous Zenith Cobramatic tone arm on that changer! Uses a unique Radionic cartridge to reduce serface noise on those old 78's.


Here is a ad for not the model posted, but a earlier Cobramatic set to just explain a little about it.

One of my first tv's was about a 53 Zenith combo set with a Cobra Matic record player and a AM radio. It was free and I was exstatic to get my own HUGE TV. It had a very dim blury picture and was hard to watch in daylight plus about a quarter of the picture was gone probably due to bad tubes. I and my sisters still loved it and watched many late night weekend horror flicks on it. It was a 23" rounded tube set probably about 5 years or so newer then that set. Back in the day it was easier to make a safe CRT round, then the manufacturing process and materials improved and they started making square tubes.
