First manufactured in Japan in the late 1950's, the Sanyo Channel Master 6506 reflects the streamlined mid-century aesthetic of the era. The classic gold and chrome face are perfectly complemented by the bright red case giving this radio its retro charm.

Measuring 5 3/4" (14.60 cm) wide x 3" (7.62 cm) tall x 1 1/2" (3.81 cm) deep, the radio does show a little wear, with one notable chip on the back right corner (photo 3). The plastic face has a few small cracks that aren't even noticeable at certain angles. The original leather carrying case has seen better days with a back seam split and broken strap.

Includes two earphone jacks, antenna jack, tuning and volume dials. Appears to have been updated at some point to run on one 9V battery. The radio does work, but I'm not able to get any stations - might be because there is no antenna.

A handsome addition to any collection.
