PYE v510

Hi guys , just come across this set I bought it thinking it was a v210 but on getting a closer look I discovered it was a V510 using the earlier chassis .
Having changed my collecting to consentrate on collecting PYE sets this came as a pleasant surprise it will compliment my other PYE sets .

I'm I right in thinking this maybe a rarer set than the V210?
To be honest I've never seen one before

That's a new one on me Chris, but it looks fab.

Back in the late 1980s I found a Pye set at the junk market in Nottingham. It was a 21" table model, not unlike a big version of your set, similar vintage I guess, but it had motor tuning (sequential) and the cabinet was a green rexine type of finish rather than woodgrain. Quite unusual and I've always wondered which model it was. I never had it working unfortunately.

Good luck with your nice little 510. :thumb

It uses the same chassis as my 1959 Pam 600F, as you say the V210 uses a different chassis.
My V210 needs to go back on the bench due to an IF problem

The one I remember with some fondness is the V530, with the FM tuner at the side.

Wow! :bba I never thought I'd see one of those again! I was beginning to think I had imagined it!! What an amazing selection you have there and what an excellent idea to concentrate on one manufacturer you like.
