The unique and lavish design of the Metrodyne Super 7's front panel can be directly attributed to the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922. After that discovery, Egyptian architecture had an influence in style of many products such as radios, toasters, coffee pots etc., and in the architecture of houses and buildings. Metrodyne definitely cashed in on this new style by designing the cabinet and the panel's mural of the Super 7 to look Egyptian. I purchased this radio, along with the matching speaker, from a large antique mall in Anderson, Indiana, in the spring of 1996.

When cabinet material or color differences are apparent or suspected in donated photos, I have included additional photos of certain model numbers. Due to time constraints, I must rely entirely on the accuracy of information supplied by contributors with their photographs. As such, no guarantee is made that the model numbers presented here are correct.
