Which CB radio was in the General Lee in the TV series?

The Cobra 77x and 78x are quite similar to each other, but nothing like the one above. The 77x has an extra knob marked "DYNAMIKE", and the level meter on the left uses a different graphic. When I Googled Dukes of Hazzard CB radio, most of the results showed the 78x, and that's also the one that gets mentioned a couple of times on this forum. I don't have a screengrab to prove it, but I'll look out for one. Here are the models in question.

I spoke with Jon Holland about the CB radio.  


He told me the Cobra 78x was seen one time.  All the other times a sharp 40 channel was seen.


Below is a picture of the Sharp 40 channel CB which looks a lot like the one in the screen grab Roth Potter posted above.
