    1959 Motorola Transistor Radio, Model X11G

    Had this thing since I was a kid. I always loved how cool it was. Looks like something Captain Kirk would have carried on the Starship Enterprise.

    Dad was into ham radio and electronics. He repaired radios in the basement. Also taught license classes, trouble shooting transistor radios, etc. So I have several older transistor radios

    The leather case has a carrying handle as well as a belt buckle hole. It's like an early Walkman!

    The ad is from a December 1959 newspaper.

    Vintage Motorola Transistor Radio, Model X11G, AM Band Only, 6 Transistors, Rear Fold-Out Stand, Made in Japan.

    The model number indicates the case color - X11B = Blue, X11E = Black, X11G = Green and X11R = Red. This radio, made by the Tokai Company, was the first Motorola transistor radio to be made in Japan.
