Seminole Model 1101 Transistor Radio (1963)

The black leather case for this eleven-transistor model has an unusual feature: two strong magnets on the bottom. In a car with a metal dashboard, this could be a handy take-it-along feature. The magnets are strong enough to hold it on the side of a refrigerator, so maybe it was a wacky space-saving device, instead.
