Herb's longtime friend, Barry Goldwater, K7UGA, made a visit to Oceanside in 1966 to get his 1963 Corvette Stingray outfitted with a new Swan 400 SSB transceiver and Swantenna mobile antenna.

Swantenna installed on rear of Barry Goldwater's 1963 Corvette Stingray. An external speaker for the Swan 400 radio inside is attached to the overhead behind the drivers seat and can been seen through the rear window.

Barry Goldwater's Swan 400 SSB transceiver is securely mounted behind the passenger seat of his 1963 Corvette Stingray. The external VFO, a model 406B, is out of view and mounted on the dash up front. Notice the new two tone Swan 400 front panel which was introduced in late 1965 to replace the earlier single tone light gray panel.
