Westinghouse Escort 8 Transistor Pocket AM Radio with Watch Clock, Flashlight, Cigarette Lighter, AC plug for charging Ni-Cd - 1962For Parts or RepairMade in Japan.
This is actually a pretty neat little unit. Has a cig lighter, flashlight, clock, radio and built in AC power plug for charging internal Ni-Cads.To operate the cig lighter, the chrome on side slides down. I suspect this feature was short lived due to serious safety concerns if slid into a pocket and that slide is operated.I wish I had the time to tinker with this one and get these features working.
Ni-Cads or (2) AA batteries are not included.
However, when tested regular AA Batteries, the only thing that seems to work is the Swiss Made clock which is a wind up clock like a watch. Keeps good time too.Radio and rest of features will need to be serviced. There is some corrosion on battery terminals. Looks complete otherwise.
