You seem to be describing a Philco Predicta console. If so there are usually a few listed on ebay and check in Antique Radio Classified. As far as cheap, your only hope would be to find one at a yard/estate sale where the owner doesn't know what it's worth. The Predictas are highly collectible and usually command a high price...<P>------------------<BR>KA0SCR

Hi Dave<P>Predicta's are hard to find TV's. I found mine off the internet and it cost 500. eBay has them but the prices there are even higher. I hunt tvs all the time and have just to see a Predicta.<P>Good luck<BR>Tom Guest<P><P>------------------<BR>

I just saw a Predicta on ebay under the /Collectibles/Televisions Sets/ section. Bidding was at $80, about to close.<P>------------------<BR>Vinton Roush<BR>Fairfield, OH
