Something that was left out of that story is very interesting...

Galvin Manufacturing pitched the idea of a car radio to Henry Ford.  Henry Ford liked the idea but didn't like that the owner of Galvin Manufacturing was Jewish.  Henry Ford refused to put a Jewish name on his car.  So Galvin Manufacturing owners came up with the name Motorola, then Henry Ford approved of those radios to be put in his cars.

Not surprising that they left that out.

I remember a lot of 70s Fords said "PHILCO" on their radios.
