I am getting ready to list this item on Ebay, but upon researching this over at RadioMuseum.org...I'm seeing notes saying the 242T model is actually red (not ivory), but the label I have pictured shows the "242T Ivory" on that label.

Think RadioMuseum.org isn't accurate?

Your label is correct. Here is a little more information:

The 242T cabinet is either Ivory or Yellow (the 243T cabinet is either Green or Red).

The original color notes on RMorg, given in paragraph form by Ernst in 2008, appear to match your radio.

The revision with the color list at the bottom was added by his daughter 5 years later, in 2013.

It is probable that the two different (conflicting) entries came from two different sources, or that the color assignments by Arvin actually changed from one catalog to another, or from one sales channel to another, or who knows.

In any case, the label on your radio is clearly correct for your radio. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that a red 242T could show up, though.
