Oldest surviving color television in the world.
1946 General Electric model No. 950.
This may surprise you, but General Electric made a mechanical color wheel color television way back in 1946, prior to the CBS-Goldmark color set! Believed to be the only existing example on display at the National Museum of Scotland. Click on below image to read the PDF.

AMC, a 1954 color television no one has heard of and could well be the first color set sold in this country. It appears to have used the RCA 15GP22 CRT. See the accompanying newspaper article indicating this set was sold within “hours” of the advertisement going public by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on January 20, 1954.
