One of the more stylish "coat pocket" / small portable transistor radios made in the 1960s, reminiscent of many US tabletop tube radios from the 1940s yet still very much a 1960s radio. The designers chose their colors carefully: a midnight-blue body with a gray back cabinet half, a color combination that shows up again in the tuning and volume dials, the gold-colored grille, and the gold-colored reverse-painted tuning dial area in which the tuning scale is silver/gray.
