How about a Sinclair transistor radio?

By alwaysakid

Remember the transistor radios that were so popular back in the 1960s? Everyone had to have one to listen to their favorite radio stations. And you could hang it from almost anything with the little looped cord, or sometimes even fit it in a pocket. They were far more mobile than the "boom boxes" that would follow.
I found one amongst my stuff recently that I had obtained as a kid from a Sinclair service station. It was some kind of promotional thing, and the radio was made to resemble a gas pump, with the station numbers showing where the "gallons" would be displayed on the pump. It's pretty neat.
But after having it stashed away in a box for decades, I decided to see if there's someone else who would like to have it more than me. So, I listed it on ebay. It's item # 121144036760 on ebay and the bidding ends Friday evening. If you think you might be interested, check it out at:
