Clearing out the barn and basement. I bought a box of NOS radios ~25 years ago to get one, a mid 70's. mono Blaupunkt Frankfurt, and this was also in the box. It is a NOS RCA "Flat Face" am/fm radio w/ knobs, faceplate, etc. in bags. Someone once said it may be for a early-mid 70's GM or other domestic, but I am not sure. This thing is too cool to toss, so I'm hoping someone (who is happy w/ vintage hi fi) can use it for a resto. Someone's for the ride.

I wonder if that is transistors, or tubes?

If it is tubes it probably has a vibrator (relay set up to oscillate) to drive a step up transformer.

That radio is definitely transistor. Looks mid-70s.

Don't forget the hybrid units with 12 Volt only tubes, no vibrator and output transistors. Those tubes had to have close spacing to work at only 12 V, and were not real reliable.I am out of the tubes now, for a while working used ones fetched 20 the last one I got 50 for it. No idea how much they are worth now. I only had a few radios, 2 of them were fixed, the others donated parts. The working radios got 200 for them years ago.

Anyone have any idea what this would fit? Now I am curious. My poking around the web showed some GM or Chrysler dashboards or consoles that seemed suitable for this, but domestics aren't my corner of the hobby..
