    radio for a 1979

    Post  Marx3 on Thu Sep 24, 2015 5:07 am

    I need an original radio. Someone put an aftermarket cd-player in my car and I want to put in an original radio for stock appearance. It doesn's have to work or anything.

    Check with Myloth. He recently went with an aftermarket system. Maybe he'll still have his original one.

    If Myloth doesn't have one, I might. I'm pretty sure the radio I took out of the car was stock, but I'll have to dig it out to be certain.

    I have a delco cassette deck that plays am/fm through all 4 speakers well, but I can't promise it won't eat any tapes. Here's a picture if you're interested.

    For $10 and shipping cost I'll be happy to know it's being enjoyed in Denmark.

    I do have an extra set that work for the radio. I believe they came out of an 80's Buick Riviera.

    If you want to make the radio work I can include the 3 plugs to go in the back of the radio if yours have been cut and you want to wire it back up, they are not pretty but they will work. I believe the plastic clips/plugs for the radio are blue, black, and white if you wanted to look to see if you still have them attached behind the radio console.

    So yes, I can add a set of knobs and the radio's wiring harness if you'd like.

    Let me know if this works for you and we can figure out the rest of the details.

    Hi, thanks for your offer. that is a sweet deal.
    In the meantime I talked to my good friend, who is also a B-body guy and it turns out he HAS an original radio including the bezel. He had just forgotten to mention it. So I wont be needing your readio after all. Sorry for any inconvenience. I might get back to you about the wiring, though...
