I've managed to collect some interesting transistor radios that were sold under the Zephyr name. The Zephyr AR-600 is one of my favorites to collect, but is difficult to find one without chips in the case as the plastic is quite thin and the cover is difficult to remove.

Bottom row, the yellow one in the middle. I have that model but the main body is bluish-gray. I wonder how many other colors that model came in.

I've seen the Zephyr ZR-620 available also in green, white and black. The ZR-620 in the box has a blue case and was manufactured in Japan, whereas the yellow radio was made in Hong Kong. The components in both radios are the same except the transistors in the blue ZR-620 were made by NEC, with the other radio having transistors labeled as being manufactured by Zephyr.
