Most TVs of this era will need at least some of the capacitors replaced. That may be all that is needed if the TV was functional when it was stored. You shouldn't gut it; a collector may not give you much for it ($25-50), but it's better than destroying a 56 year old piece of history.<P>------------------<BR>

To get an idea what it would take to restore it, take a look at some of the well written case histories on Phil Nelson's site:<BR> <A HREF="http://antiqueradio.org/radwrink.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://antiqueradio.org/radwrink.htm</A> <P>Also, it is not recommended that you turn it on without at least replacing the electrolytic capacitors as you could damage components. <P>You will find that everyone here will council you against gutting it. Over at the Tropical Fish Forum though, you may get different advice.<P>------------------<BR>Tim
