On 69 b body am/fm radio, did they ever say Dodge? I thought all 69 b body am/fm radios said Chrysler Solid State. What say you???

Now if we were talking about AM B body radios, then yes, In 1968 the dial faces were Dodge or Plymouth, and in 1969 they all said Chrysler

Now for a WIW - what is a '69 AM/FM for a B-Body worth?

As far as "hard to find" Mopar AM FM radios go, speaking as someone who has handled more Mopar A B E body radios than anyone on this planet,
Your three most difficult to find AM FMs are...1967 Belvedere/Satellite/GTX model # 369 ...1967 Coronet / Charger model # 370….and 1967 Dart / Barracuda model # 385.

Well, it's all about supply and demand . Although their is very little supply, their is also very little demand .Real model # 369s don't come up for sale very often, maybe two or three a year if you look hard
at the online auctions and pester the big parts vendors , etc. About 3 months ago someone listed an incorrect description and sold an incorrect radio for $ 500 . A real model # 369 in excellent working order has the
potential to pull well over a grand , but then again it depends on how many people fight over it . Here is the last one I had....

Reminds me of my first visit to Chryslers @ Carlisle, circa 1994. I arrived early on Saturday, as some vendors were unpacking. Owning a 70RR with R22 but empty hole where the radio sits, I was on the hunt for one. I encountered one vendor unpacking and asked if he had any radios. Left off the 70B body AM/FM part as that always got a smirk smile He brings out a box, probably with 30+ radios. Among them were four 70B body AM/FMs (and several A body AM/FMs) shockshockshock $160 later I happily left with all four. One of those memories that sticks with you.
