"According to Big Money Lewis, Canadian cars have entirely different radios with the word "Chryco" on the face. "

Well, that's not exactly what I said . What I meant was , every time I have ever seen a "Chryco"
face radio, for example on e-bay, it has been located in Canada. I don't mean every Y07 spec car should have a Chryco face . I will say that ,
I have personally handled over 1,000 68-9 B body
am thumbwheel radios, and I have NEVER held a chryco in my hands, however, I have seen at least
30-40 listed for sale over the last couple years
, all were located in Canada .
The part # you gave, honestly I don't see it showing up in any books so far. Honestly, I know very little about the elusive Chryco .
It sounds like this is a topic worthy of more research .

BigMoneyLewis, thanks for correcting me, I read too much into your comment on the "Chryco" face. There are a few Canadian A12 cars that are either with the original owner or have been with the same owner for many years. Maybe they can check their radios also to see what they say.

I thought I had a digital pic of mine, but only an old regular pic, and no scanner. Sorry. I will take a new pic with digital camera and post next time I see my dash.

Here is an update on my radio. According to Big Money Lewis, Canadian cars have entirely different radios with the word "Chryco" on the face.

Here are the numbers:

2649963
Model CD59014
Serial 09372
73773
1528

I assume the 2649963 is the part number, and 1528 is the date code of the 152nd day of '68? Seems pretty early for a March '69 build car.

Dave




Wonder if the "CD" in the Nodel number stands for Canada??

Ask and you shall recieve.
When I was taking the car apart for the restoration, I never had seen a Chryco radio, only the Chrysler Solid State face.

Here is the face.....

Mike, I was wondering the same thing that the CD meant a Canadian model.

Here is the part tag on top.

The radios are different in Canada because they broadcast in Metric up there.

Seriously, is the part number in the parts catalog for a radio "package"? Speaker, antennae etc. as you would buy if you were adding a radio to a radio delete car.

That's what mine says on it. I think that's the typical one for the A12's. I wonder what the ones marked "Plymouth...." came in?

Out of curiousity, are the PN#'s the same or different from the CHRYCO, DODGE, etc.??? Can any who have the different faces chime in with the part number tag on the radios?

Okay all, let's have it. It's not hard, just peek inside your interior compartment.

Let's hear what writing is on the face plate of your radios?

By the way - I bought a restored radio for my 383 bee from BigMoneyLewis and it looks fantastic and works great.

As previously mentioned, the Dodge, Plymouth Chrysler and Chryco, all 4 will have different part numbers. Your best bet is to go with the Chrysler face , probably 75-80 % of your a12 cars
had this one originally. But you COULD have had
a Dodge face in the Superbee, or a Plymouth face
in the Road Runner. Either radio is 100 % correct for your application, just depended on vendor supply at the plant on that particular day .
As far as the Chryco (which also has 68-9 Dodge dart style chrome preset buttons) who knows what's
going on with that ? It could have been for cars
actually built in Canada at R code plant(not A12s of course) an over the counter dealer radio
or whatever. All I know is Chryco was Canada's
Chrysler division. I certainly would not think an A12 car , built as a Y07 Canadian spec car, would have left Lynch Rd with a Chryco radio.
My thoughs is that it was installed sometime latter.
Just guessing.

Greg, I just talked to a couple of guys that have owned their A12 cars a long time. One since new and the other guy owned his since the early seventies. Both of their cars and my car have " CHRYSLER SOLID STATE " radios.

These are all Canadian cars with 2 of the cars being early production and one built in May of 1969.

FYI
