Radio Fitment

Recommended Posts

I've been looking to replace my 70 AM radio with a 70 AM/FM radio and I believe a 70 Chevelle will be the same radio.  Is there a difference shaft length of a Chevelle SS radio from a non-SS radio?   By shaft length I'm referring to the threaded section where the nut goes to hold the radio tight to the dash.

Thank in advance for any insight.

The radio’s are the same for 70 Monte and chevelle. Same dash. 71 and 72 Monte and chevelle are also the same but have different color lense and different knobs.

The best aftermarket I'd the one I have in my car it looks identical to the original but it's like over $600

Ever tried to price a real nice original am/fm. I know you know. 600 ain’t bad considering your getting all the modern technology in an original looking radio.

I ordered mine last August and it just came in today. just waiting to clear customs! Supply chain delays are really messing with us!

It's factory looking, but has bluetooth, etc. I also went for the "roll over" option; moves the dial just like the old radio did!

I paid $698 US Dollars, (which is like $1,000 Canadian Dollars!) I still feel it is very well worth it and can't wait to install it!

Got a look a like from resto parts on opgi a few years ago. Looks great, all the phone inputs ect but the sound quality leaves something to be desired. Have good speakers but , I’m an audio perfectionist what can I say..  just looked at the vintage audio radio link, to me 45 watts per channel basically won’t do it for me. Maybe add a booster..

I will indeed let you know.

I do remember from my original investigation it may need a booster (mounted under passenger seat). 

Stay "tuned" 🤪
