The Continental Model 160 transistor radio came out in 1959 and looked similar to the very successful Zenith Royal 500. The Model 160 had 6 RCA transistors which used sockets, and was powered by an Eveready 226 9 volt battery. Although the Continental Model 160 is a good performer, it was not a commercial success and few can be found today. - Mark

Interesting, I've never seen one of those. The styling leaves something to be desired, which is probably why they didn't sell well.

Those Model 160 radios are pricey little boogers when you can find one.
Recently one of them that was glued back together like a tattooed Frankenstein sold for $128 + shipping on epay. ha-ha!
