I used to have an old TV with a continuous VHF tuner that included 
channel 1.  You flipped a switch to tune channels 7-13.

I do recall those UHF converter boxes, though--as well as the CBS sets 
with the socket (dodecar?) on the back of the chassis for the color 
wheel adapter.  One of the electronics junk shops near my home had 
wooden crates full of the color wheels (no adapters though).
