I am looking for a stock (working) '71 GT radio, Is there one out there with all the knobs?
Hi. Do you still have any GT stock radio?The (AM) radios are all pretty much the same, but there are at least 2 different face plates. The early ones all said "Kadett Radio", even on the GT's and the later ones said something different. I have at least 6 of them that were removed at the dealership from cars who's purchasers didn't want to pay the extra for the radio. Not quite NOS, but pretty sure they'll work fine.
I also have 3 or 4 Datsun and Toyota AM/FM radios from the early '80's. They fit in the stock holes without modifying anything, look pretty close to the same, but let you listen to FM. One of the Toyota ones has a remote mount tape deck too, but I can't remember how well the tape unit worked. Another has a remote mount 8-track.....
Gordy;They made Opel radios with cassette players in them, right?
I've always wanted to find a GT one with a cassette player. Only if it says GT on the face plate, not Kadette.
Is there such a thing?
The one with FM I think say kadett on the face.Does It mean that there are Opel GT stock radios with FM??
thought there were only AM
Gordy, the only limits are your imagination......Is it possible to dissect a radio and swap the face plates?
I thought that I had seen Opel radios that said Kadette Cassette by Opel. So, if I'm right, what I saw was from a '76 or newer Opel?
I wonder if the faceplate for an Opel GT radio could be extracted and, with some customizing, be inserted into another radio with FM, a cassette, or even a CD player?
They were all made by Delco, right? One would presume that other Delco radios, installed in other makes of cars, would have the same design and that one could make a hybrid radio with an Opel GT faceplate.
The GT's we (U.S.A.) received were AM only. Not sure when FM was offered in Opels. I made an impulse purchase from German eBay a few years ago on a Blaupunkt Opel AM/FM radio. FM was mono AND I was never able to get it to work. :sigh:... the GT never got more than just AM/FM
