CTC9 Dealer Catalog Sheets

Jon Lopez supplied his original CTC9 Color Receiver consumer brochure. It was used for the above collage and the original enlarged images.

The new improved enlarged images are now from original dealer product catalog sheets. The sheets were provided by Dan Gustafson. Don Kent did the PhotoShop editing.

Shortly after the introduction of the initial CTC9 models documented in Jon Lopez's early consumer brochure, the "Anniversary" was announced to commemorate color television's fifth year. It resembled the "Winslow" model without the Winslow's metal speaker lattice. The "Winslow" and "Patterson" models were then discontinued.

The "Anniversary" is shown in Dan Gustafson's later dealer product sheets (accessible from the above collage). There is no sheet for the "Winslow".

Two additional mystery models are identified in the 1966 "RCA Field Service Guide for 1955-1966 RCA Color TV Receivers" (ERT-200) as having a CTC9A,B chassis. These are the "Gibson" (211-CD-87C4 in genuine maple) and the "Darcy" (211-CD-875,6, or 7 - in mahogany, walnut or oak). However, the "211" prefix used in these model numbers corresponds to sets using the CTC10 and CTC11 chassis - and the "C" used in the "Gibson" model is inconsistent with any standard model numbering. It is not known if these two sets were some type of a mid-year bridge between CTC9 and CTC10 models. I would like to hear from anyone owning the "Gibson" or "Darcy" to confirm if the CTC9 chassis was actually used in these models.
