You are disturbing some old memories now.  We had one - on either a 57 Buick 
Super or a 60 Bonneville convert - I think it was the Pontiac.  Looked 
something like the picture, but I seem to recall an integral handle for 
transporting while out of the car.  Yes, it was transistor.  I don't recall 
how it was powered when out of the car - could it have been rechargeable 
battery in that era?
