This was a long anticipated arrival! Justin picked up this 1958 Olympic Hi-Fi (black and white) unit at a yard sale a while back and when I saw it in his shop I knew it had to be be mine. You might remember the GE conversion Justin did not too long ago. That unit worked out great, and I knew Justin would do the same with this unit.
Justin went through the radio and record player to make sure they worked perfectly.
The color tube(CRT) Justin installed is from a 90’s RCA television.
Justin did such a fantastic job on this one. He went as far as to custom make switch mechanisms so the original knobs work and function with the new conversion.
Justin was able to make the “Hi Fidelity” light function while the television is on.
Without further ado here is the result of Justin’s efforts.
And as with all Justin’s conversions it comes with a universal remote, not standard equipment in the 1950’s!
Justin also installed the remote sensor in a way that it doesn’t take away from the appearance of the unit.
Another great piece to enjoy for years to come.
Here is Justin going over what he did to make this gem more modern!
