Westinghouse Model H-742T4 Plastic Radio (1956)

Cool minty green! This delightful radio also came in Carnation Pink and Shadow White. It has 4 tubes mounted on a printed circuit board.

Circuit-board tube radios as transitional pieces, linking the golden age of tube radios with so-called modern electronics. When I saw the circuit board, I assumed this was a 1960's radio, but the Bunis collector guide says that it was made in 1956. Either way, this radio looks and sounds so good that I haven't had to restore it at all.
