Zenith-A3
(1 item)

I picked up this portable TV as a freebie, advertised on Craig's List. It's not working, though it looks good enough for a display item. The original cord was cut off at the plug and so I removed it and found another cord with a plug of the same size (after reaming out the holes). Several tubes seem to light up but not the screen.

I believe it should have rabbit ears or some kind of an aerial on top but it just has a cable connection wired in. I found a similar TV shown on Ebay, dating from 1957. Would anyone have an original magazine ad for it or more information about it?

    In 1955, my husband purchased this same TV set as our very first. It had rabbit ears and lasted a very long time (throughout our college years.)
