Personna Model 6T-160 Transistor Radio (1960s)

Is it me, or is there something strangely irresistible about red radios? Combine red with gold, pack it with six transistors, and you have a Personna! This sleek model has an unusually large tuning dial, nestled behind a thick clear cover.

I also have the original red leather case for this radio. A teeny separate leather case holds the earphone and slips onto the radio case's strap, similar to the little cases for old light meters and other photographic equipment.
