In the pre-title sequence of the James Bond film Moonraker (1979), we can spot a Weltron 2001 8-Track player.

The radio is located in the small airplane from Apollo Airways in which James Bond is travelling. When the pilot and stewardess reveal themselves to be bad, we can see the round Weltron radio next to the door that leads to the cockpit.

The Weltron 2001 8-Track Player Tape Stereo AM-FM Multiplex Solid State Radio is a portable AM/FM audio receiver with 8-track player launched in the early 1970s. The radio has become a design icon and is also known as the "Spaceball".

The Weltron 2001 can still easily be found on eBay starting at $250.

The same 2001 model has also appeared on Star Trek, That 70s Show, The IT Crowd (2008), High Fidelity (2000), and apparently in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997, if you have a screenshot, please submit it).

With thanks to Michael Hackl (aka 007collector) for letting me use the photos of his Weltron 2001.
