This is a Sony 7F-74L I acquired when helping clean out a basement. Destined for the trash, I rescued it and cleaned it up because I thought it was a really cool looking radio. There isn't very much information to be found about it but there is one for sale on eBay right now that doesn't work and isn't in as good a condition as this one. Oddly enough, they're both missing the Sony badge on the speaker side: https://bit.ly/ca9F6v
It really looks like a car radio because it was intended to be used as one if desired. There's an edge connector on the bottom for an antenna hookup and external speaker. It has enough volume to be heard in a car to be sure. This set is heavy duty with a metal carrying handle and quality controls and switches. The band selector has a really nice feel to it and the volume control is also a push-pull on/off switch. This needed a fair amount of DeOxit to get the noise out of it but it sat in a moldy basement for decades. The dial light still works and it has a hi/lo tone switch and a Local/DX switch all conveniently mounted on the top with the rest of the controls. It has a 4-1/2" speaker that can handle almost full volume before distorting.
It receives Shortwave from 6 to 12 MHz, Longwave from 150 to 280 KHz, and the standard AM and FM bands. I haven't tested it extensively but it is at least average on all the bands. It runs on 3 D batteries and is frugal in its power consumption. It can use an AC adapter for 4.5 Volts with a negative tip. It has an Auxiliary input that will work with an MP3 player (if a stereo to mono adapter is used) and a line level Auxiliary output as well. There is an earphone jack and a Stereo Multiplex output. Its dimensions are 8" high, 7-3/4" wide, and 2-1/2" deep. It's fairly heavy at roughly 3 pounds without batteries.
This is a "usable classic" that I had never seen before. It's one of those radios that I would have given my left arm for as a kid because it was loud with a great sound and was way off the coolness scale with its unusual design with lots of chrome. I took it with me last summer on a camping trip and it was a lot of fun DXing stations along the Appalachian Trail. It's funny that some of my favorite radios were obtained for free and this is one of them.
