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.
