DESCRIPTION: This is a rare color for this period. Most yellow molded color radios are actually ivory. This is a factory conceived yellow color. No repaints. No touch up. None needed. The other color offered in the model was the pastel green color which is slightly more common. Like this one. I have never seen this beautiful yellow color in this model.
