Auction Finds: Vintage Cragstan RCA-NBC Mobile Color TV Truck

I would so love to own one of these vintage tin beauties — it’s a battery-powered RCA-NBC Mobile Color TV Truck from Cragstan. I’ve included multiple shots here because there’s a lot of great detail here. Based on the NBC logo used, I’d date this at around the late 1950s.

Here’s a few pics with the original box. Love the vintage ’50s color scheme.

Great detail on the cameraman, and of course there’s the classic RCA “His Master’s Voice” logo on the side.

On the right side we have the original peacock logo, circa late ’50s. I wonder what’s going on behind the blinds?
