I wonder if there's a collector's market for Muntz TVs? I suspect that
you probably had a version of "Madman Muntz" on your side of the pond. In
a nutshell, Muntz sold sets that were stripped to their very minimum parts
count. His tuners didn't have AFC, but neither did they have a manual
tuning adjustment--they were set at the factory. If you had a problem, you
called one of his service people to tweak the tuning.
