Sharp BXS-327
This is an early Sharp 8 transistor, AM/SW set. I really like the badge in the middle of the speaker grill borrowing heavily from the Cadillac medalion. As automotive motifs were popular during the 1950’s this was most likely a tribute to the V8 engine……of course it also represented the transistor count……

The placement and contour of the volume and tuning knobs create a nice symmetry. Althought the cabinet is a drab, military grey the radio still manages to look "sharp".

The Sharp logo is present on the bottom left, it’s just hard to see as it blends into the grill.

Sharp made this radio for Sylvania (Golden Shield) as well. It can be found as a model 7040 without the ‘V8’ badge in the middle of the speaker grill.
