I'd take one of those old TVs and pull the guts out and stick an LED TV inside it. Old school charm with new school technology.
I've seen it done a couple of times. It looks like crap. Not saying it couldn't be done nicely, just the ones I've seen aren't. Plus I'm more of a purist. To me, it is like removing the original engine out of a classic car and installing a new engine.
If you end up trying to gut a vintage TV, I'd be interested in buying the guts of it, from you.

Here are a couple more pictures of my TV sets.

Gutting a classic car and sticking in a modern drivetrain is awesome, I can seen how trying to stick a modern tv in an old box may look subpar though.

Especially since most modern LED/LCD TVs are a different aspect ratio, you'd have to do a lot of customizing. It might be better to build your own box around that looks like it's old school. Like the top one up there would be ideal, keep the screens the same color and put some modern high quality, thinner speakers behind it, and cut the screens down to size to fit the 16:9 tv.

Automatic, Steeda CAI, 4.10 gears, Boss Intake, BBR O/R X, Steeda Tune, M&H Drag Radials.
