If you bought a telly in 1958 then it'd almost certainly look identical
to this, a slightly rounded rectangular box with minimum controls at the
front . Just like a modern car, remove the badge and you'd have no idea
who made it. However, this one is a Ferguson badge on a Thorn manufactured
chassis and has twice the normal number of controls at the front due to
also including a V.H.F. radio.
|SERVICE DATA||There is a copy of the "Trader" service sheet 1382/T163 on the Vintage Television Service Data CDROM.|
|CURRENT STATE||Nice and shiney though the finish shows heat cracks, and works too. owever the set uses an odd power connector which I don't have.|
|WHERE FOUND||From a chap at the December 2002 B.V.W.S. bash at Wooton Bassett for £20.|
|Super-clean chassis||Controls hidden in recessed
panel on the right of the set.
