The 1985 Curtis Mathes Color Console K2658RL
This beautiful model was given to me by Fran Howard, she purchased the modern beauty from the Curtis Mathes Showroom in Cookeville, Tennessee in 1985.

The Magical Deluxe Remote Control for 1985
The deluxe infrared remote control is almost magical. The direct channel access lets you "key in" that favorite channel, or let the programmable scan feature do it for you! Enjoy channel up/channel down scanning. Plus volume control, and mute, all at your finger tips. These models were built to last for almost forever. With a four year warranty, to this day I still find many models that have out lived their original owners.
