This set is very worthy of restoration, if you really want to do it,
Post it here and get an evaluation:
BTW you can always get an RF modulator and go into channel 3 or 4,
considering how dirty the old tuner probably is, this would be an
added bonus to not have to use the original tuner. The picture tube
could also be going dim and you will have a hard time finding a new
pix tube, you might find one of those in-line "brighteners" but those
will shorten any last life in the pix tube electron gun. Most all of
the other parts are readily available or have substitutes.
I like that site. Lots of interesting stuff.
The picture tube on this set was always good. The tuner was flakey, I
think thats the most common problem on all older sets. I have sprayed
it several times already. I guess when a picture tube goes, it's over
for most tvs. I remember having a color set in the 60's who's pic
tube died. I saved the chassis always hoping to find a replacement
tube. I just pulled the small tubes and threw that chassis in the
trash a couple years ago. The old color tvs were really expensive and
were worth fixing, but no longer. Only the real antiques, like my old
Zenith are worth the effort now.
