Even though most of the pic.'s are out of focus it Still looks really sharp.
Takes 8 "D" batteries. Must weigh a ton.
According to  radio museum dot org the radio cost $3,600 the first year of manufacturing, 1976.

Wow, didn't know those radios existed. I've seen pics of the Sony CRF whatever it is, the monstrous Sony multibander from the same era. This one seems to take the cake. $10K, the shipping had better be free.

Panasonic made good products. I've got a Panasonic clock radio that is a very good MW performer.

Too bad the company is sort of MIA now.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
