Default Thorn 9650 Consolette

Just by chance I was looking up old threads for Thorn export sets & when opening one on the 9500 chassis & was surprised to see Mikey66 had posted a picture of a DER consolette using the 9650 chassis which looks a lot like my Gran's old set.

I remember it mostly for being the first remote control set owned by anyone I knew, which seemed at odds with the traditional styling of the case, especially the sliding door over the screen.

As far as I remember my Gran didn't rent her set, so I presume Thorn made more or less the same set with the same branding.

VRAT's Thorn Chassis guide lists the Ferguson 3782 & 3789 as using the 9650 chassis, so I assume one had a consolette style case. Unfortunately there's no brochure scans of this set on the site.

My gran had it until the picture started to fade sometime in the late 1980s, & was replaced by a largish screen set that oddly didn't have teletext, when this was more or less standard on larger sets.

It's nice to know you've got one, but I'm not interested in owning one I'm afraid due to a lack of space!
