The RETROVISOR was the only retro-style colour TV ever manufactured in Great Britain, and to the best of our knowledge this was the first time such a marketing concept had been tried anywhere in the world.

The Retrovisor was manufactured by Radiocraft between 1993 and 1995. There were three versions, each re-engineered to incorporate new colour chasses as the years passed. All included remote control.

Since production ceased, these sets have come back onto the market only rarely. Good examples generally sell rapidly.

Just 48 of these beauties were produced and originally were sold at between £349 and £695, depending on the outlet.

These rare colour receivers now occupy a unique place in the history of television and are considered investments. All models have a 9-inch screen with remote control.

Retrovisors were made for use only with the UK-standard UHF television transmissions. They do not have SCART sockets. Occasionally rebuilt as-new Retrovisors become available again through us and are sold on privately. If you are interested in finding out current availability, please contact me.

The refurbished example below sold on Ebay for £660, together with a scart modulator/adaptor to make it practical to use under modern conditions.
