For model Eight Transistor AR-851 (8RT2) Without CD marks, Packard Bell Co.; Los Angeles (CA):
This photo comes from a hobby site (Cigarboxnation) where these USA-made AM radios are used to make improvised guitar-banjo amplifiers made with empty cigar boxes (Cigarbox guitar). This radio is famous among fans of American collectors because it was used in an old American TV series from the 1960s (Gilligan's Island) although it was shown modified with a handle and a fake telescopic antenna to make it more visually attractive.

Notes

Packard Bell AM Table top portable Radio Model AR851 (8RT2).
Was used in Gilligan's Island Television program.

This model, without CD marks, was produced later than the similar model with them.

Note: The 8RT2 model number is verified by warranty documentation on one model.  There are no current models that verify the AR851 model number, and this appears to be based on references from the Gilligan's Island TV show.

Very similar to Aiwa AR851.

Made in Japan
