    I previously worked at Motorola so this radio is extra special to me. I'd love to know if it's worth anything.

      This reminds me of a blue radio I had as a kid - I think mine was GE though. This red one is classic. Wish I could help you with its value.

      Yes, this is a lovely radio in red especially. Mine was mint like new and I sold it on ebay for $213 June 6th 2011. There is a black one on radio attic on the CHRS page for I think $50 right now.

      Beautiful Motorola, may be an early Plaskon one. Which was an early form of plastic but much more brittle and easier to break. 50s era, you have a real beauty there.
      Looks like new.
