    That is a dealer installed, not factory installed, radio. It may not be as easy to find as the factory radio.

    OK, that's why I cannot find it. Marty Mopar has one that is supposed to be the one, but he doesn't send pictures. Too much of a hassle to purchase and if incorrect, shipping it back and waiting for my money. Guess I'll just pull mine out and send it out for repairs. Thanks very much for the help!!

    Those units were made by Audiovox for the dealer accessory installs. You may find a picture and part # in a Mopar Accessories catalog from the era. They had them in Delco and FoMoCo look-alikes also.
    These radios didn't seem to perform as well as the factory radios and were hundreds of dollars cheaper. They came with speaker and antenna kits for cars that had the radio-delete option, when a customer wanted a radio or to upgrade to a tape player.

    Well, now I know! They certainly look nice, don't they??
    I have seen quite a few of the regular radios, so I'll just pick up one and be done with it. Appreciate the insight and assistance.

    Yeah, buy original. I have seen them for $5-15. at Mopar swap meets around here.
    At those prices, heck, buy spares!

    If you see one on working condition for that price, let me know ASAP. AM/FM, no cassette. Thanks very much!

    There's plenty of original,factory installed black face radios around, may be a little tougher to find one with a silver face. They've got to be out there. It's likely you'll find some with the cassette deck too,
