VINTAGE FINEST: Weltron 2001 “Space Ball”

Weltron 2001 “Space Ball” Radio/8 Track (1972)

 

 

A stellar example of 1970s “space-abilia,” the Weltron radio/tape player has a unique, unmistakable profile. It’s the size and shape of a bowling ball, with an overall otherworldly look. It has a carrying handle on top which pulls out. The twin speakers on the sides are 8-Ohm speakers made by Pioneer. At the back of each speaker grille is a jack for an extension speaker. A stereo headphone jack is placed under the console at bottom front.
