|As I understand it, in the US, radios were a dealer
installed option. I have no idea what mine had originally, I just knew
that the Pioneer AM/FM cassette that was in mine would look better in blue
80's Camaro. I decided to find a Bimmer radio that matched the car.
Not long after I bought the car I came across an original radio that
was new. So far, it is the rare find of new things for the car.
It's a Blaupunkt Bavaria. It has AM, FM and Short wave. One other
frequency is for a German radio band I believe to be unavailable in the
US. While I had loan of a Fuji S1 digital camera, I've taken some
photos of it, just in case you find one yourself.
NEW: Here's a diagram of the Blaupunkt
Bavaria faceplate if you need to cut a hole in your dash or custom console
to fit this type of radio.
