F/S: 68 Am/FM Radio

68 AM/FM radio. Has the correct ribbed push buttons and dates for 1968.
If memory servers me correctly the ribbed push buttoms started in '67.
Techincally its the same radio for 67-69. Will also fit 65 and 66 but would not
be "correct" due to the push buttons. Fit and function all the same. Radio powers up but needs to be serviced.
Only plays on AM and the string that rolls the dial over needs to be replaced or re attached.
Everyting moves the way it should with the exception to rolling over of the dial face. Pointer moves, push buttons are free, pre sets set and are resetable. All knob shafts move freely.

$325 plus shipp.

Can the buttons be changed and replaced with those from a 65-66 AM radio?

I'm not in the market, but think that might make this one have a broader appeal.

Tgey can be. But the value is in those buttons.

For comparison purposes only.

A few weeks ago I managed to purchase a NON Working 1965-66 Factory AM/FM Radio.
Later a friend informed me the radio has some of the unique wiring for a Multiplex unit which I was unaware of when I bought it.
The seller said when it was removed, all it did was make static sounds.
The asking price was extremely reasonable for a "Core" radio so I purchased it.
My thoughts are to maybe clean it up and have it fitted with a more updated AM/FM Stereo unit and add a USB compatible port and maybe Bluetooth function.
More likely though, the radio will sit on a shelf in my garage for years before I actually do something with it, or someone convinces me to let them have it.
NO this is not intended to be an opportunity for me to advertise it as available. Should that time arrive, I would post it separately.

That wiring looks more like what would be used for a rear seat speaker. I believe the multi-plex has a round multi pin connector.

Right, Rex! The multiplex unit connects to the 9 pin connector on the bottom. You (both of you) show the bypass connector in place that lets the radio run as a mono unit. If that bypass is missing, and it often is, I have the Sams Photofact on it and can provide the pinout to make a bypass plug.

The flat three terminal connector is the standard speaker power connector (just look at where it connects to the radio, same connector) with the rear seat speaker fader installed. Still Mono, but works great. AN AUX can be added without destroying the original internals of the radio. A few capacitors replaced and it should play like new (either radio).

My initial thought was that those wire were probably related to the rear seat speaker.
The individual that told me it was something else actually has a late coupe with a multiplex. I figured he might know better than I do.
