RETROVISOR was the only retro-style colour TV ever manufactured
in Great Britain, and to the best of my knowledge this was the
first time such a marketing concept had been tried anywhere in the
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 Retrovisors come on the market again and exchange hands
privately. If you would like to be added to an email alert list,
