    I will try 1956, based on the cool easy chair.

    Maister -

    You left another clue in the ad.... and Zenith has a company history on its website... so I will refrain from guessing.

    well i was going to say 1955- but kjelsadek beat me too it.

    i cant say 1956 either- so i have to go with 1957.

    but i still think its 1955

    1955 is correct (product didn't come out until 1956, but ad ran in '55). That's two in a row for you kjelsadek!

    Everyone is right - that one was too easy. I'll make the next one harder.

    Damn, I am always slow. I saw it right away and went to their website and did the math, thought I was being tricky. 1955, son of a.......jk

    $150 for the remote + $400 for the TV = http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1130986501280

    Just a bit of difference.
