1950s Philco Predicta

1950s Philco Predicta

Philco made these futuristic-looking TV sets in the late 1950s, just predating and predicting The Jetsons animated TV show by a bit; maybe that’s what they were predicting? They were marketed as the world's first swivel screen television, with wild-looking (for the time) independently-mounted screen. This particular one has been here for years, always thought it would be great in our store window, never quite got around to making it go. The power supply works, all the interior tubes light up, but alas….. no picture. There are guys who specialize in fixing these, even some who replace the innards with modern components, make ‘em, into outré-looking, functioning modern home entertainment centers. Do as you like here; you’re on your own, be the envy of everyone you know, regardless of what you do or don’t do with this fab icon of the Sputnik years, makes kitsch look passé; In-store pickup only; no shipping. $495 as is
