Vintage Portable Television, Deltone 5" High Tech TV 55, Electric AC DC or Battery Operated, Camping Off Grid Device, Black Weather Receiver

$340.00 $425.00

The 5" portable television Deltone TV-55 is in excellent condition. The television does work. The telescopic antenna is straight and in excellent working condition. The television has a 5" quickstart monochrome picture tube.

This listing includes the original box, owners manual, DC car battery adaptor, AC power adaptor 1278-KN, DSMT 75 Matching Antenna Adaptor, and television.

The television along with its knobs and antennae are in excellent working condition. The television powers up and the screen comes on. We have not tested it to any certain channel or with the adaptors for the car or with the matching antenna adaptor. However, they appear to be in good working condition and practically unused. Please note that sometimes the little matching antennae adaptors can go out but are very inexpensive and easy to replace per a television reference. We did not test it with 8 "D" cell batteries. However, the battery compartment does not appear to have ever been used as can be seen in the pictures. The screen is very clean. The picture is very crisp and the brightness, contrast, and v-hold can be adjusted.

There are no breaks, chips, or repair places on the television. There is a little rattle sound inside that is most likely a little piece of the plastic trim edge from the folding foot. The folding foot works great - including its folding and unfolding. The television shows very little vintage wear and rub marks - mainly on the bright smooth plastic trim. The box does show some wear as can be seen in the pictures. Also, in the pictures, the box appears to have a water stain. However, the interior pieces in the box have no signs of water and the box is very sturdy and not falling apart. In addition, since it is only showing on two sides, it may be that the box was partly placed into a dew or damp area and the cardboard simply got a little wet.

The possibilities for putting this gorgeous little television to work include camping, RV, off the grid applications, or to simply have as a simple add-on television for an extra bedroom. It would be perfect for locations where cable TV was not available or not desired. In addition, this would make a great vintage electronics to add to the display case or collectibles shelf. Also, since it can be battery operated, it would be great for emergency situations.

The collector will appreciate this handsome portable Deltone television for its excellent condition and many components already included.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
