Here is an all original radio of mine that it seems some of you may enjoy taking a look at. It is about 9 1/2 inches across and 6 inches tall. It works perfectly. Just may need a little bit of a cleaning from some dust and debris and outside of this is in great shape with no cracks or chips. Typically this is found in a dark brown color from what I know so this may be a more rare variation/color.

I appreciate you passing by. Have an awesome one and may the remainder of the week be your best yet.... : )

    Thank you so much for the post Sign. Did you know Company founder Paul V. Galvin created the brand name Motorola for the car radio -- linking "motor" (for motorcar) with "ola" (which implied sound). Thus the Motorola brand meant sound in motion. The name Motorola was adopted in 1930, and the word has been used as a trademark since the 1930s. This is from Wikipedia. Pretty cool stuff on the history of the company....
