Collins KWM-1  However, it was for 20, 15, and 10 meters.

WRL Duo-Bander 84 was for 80 meters and 40 meters.

WRL Duo-Bander II was for 80 meters and 40 meters.

Hallicrafters SR-160 was for 80, 40, and 20 meters.

Hallicrafters SR-500 "Tornado" was for 80, 40, and 20 meters.

The SBE-33 and SBE-34 were "quad band" having 80, 40, 20, and 15 meters.

SWAN-240 was for 80, 40, and 20 meters.

Of those units, plus the ones previously listed, the best, by far, is the Collins KWM-1.  However, if only considering 80, 40, and 20 meters the best is the Hallicrafters SR-500 followed closely by the SR-160.

As for the worst, that is a close call between the Eico 753 and the Swan-240.
