My vote goes to the Robyn T-240 D Executive CB Radio

Yes that is a beaut! As much as we may hate to admit it, a lot of the Chinnken banders were cool looking!

I always preferred the Teaberry Model T version, which is basically the same radio but in black.

Out of all the HF radios I have ever had, I think the most visually pleasing is the FT-107. Why? It was so different. It didn't look like every other radio. The cream color face with Amber LED readout was beautiful.
The ugliest, is the Swan 350D, I owned it for 24 hours, I couldn't stand to look it the thing. Don't get me started about it functionally, operationally.
I've also owned a 7800, 7700,7600, all of the 756 series. Those were more like lab test gear than radios, very business like. Like a three piece suit with sensible tie.
I've had 5 Kenwood 830's, they are a mix of business and pleasure.
Heathkit, butt ugly, but get the job done.
FT-1000D, I've had two. Nice, but not "beautiful".
These are my opinions, yours may differ, but it won't change mine...
