Delco Radio Model Numbers 1958 to 1975



DELCO MODEL NUMBERS AND DATE CODES from the 1969 Delco Radio Service Manual printed September 1968.

All the info i have is on this page!

Delco used MODEL numbers to identify their radios. The MODEL number is on a PAPER tag either on the side of the radio {witch is often missing} or under a cover on tube units. If You do not have a model# or can not find it on this page, there is no way i can identify radio with out having it in front of me to match up PCB to those in service manuals!

I have NO info on what model radio will fit into another model car! Salvage Yards had that info. And, all i ever see them in is a cardboard box!
You can measure bezel opening and shaft spacing and hope there is room in the back.

Some years use different model radios depending on the production run. Later years offer several models and options.

*There may be an error of tow! OR models not listed IF You spot any PLEASE! let me know of them and I will correct page!

What is my Delco Car radio worth? Value is What ever You can get some one to PAY You for it! Many of the units i work on come from cars in drive able condition selling for $40,000.00 With mint condition factory original SURVIVORS going through the roof.
Value on the 1966 1967 Chevelle, Camaro, Chevy four knob Multi~Plexers is off the charts as only 5,000 of those were ever made, many of witch have never worked correctly.

To me any thing less than $1500.00 on of my restored radios is a supper DEAL. Considering a 1965, 1966 or 1967 Corvette the car sold in 67 for $4000.00 the radio added $150.00 and any kind of driver today is worth $40,000.00. AND my radio restoration is going to add $1,500.00 to the value of the car over a none working radio.
I am seeing clean core parts radios witch is the only place many of the parts need to restore a unit can be readable found going for over #300.00 on eBay.

Hook up info on main page.

Late in the 1968 model year, Delco Radio adopted a standardised coding for GM-Model-Line radios which made it very simple to identify exactly what a radio is by features, make, and model year.

Let's say the "Service Model Number" is:
02GFM1
1970 Pontiac Grand Prix AM/FM~Stereo

The first digit is the model year of the radio 0=1970. So 8=1968, 9=1969, 0=1970, 1=1971, 2=1972 3=1973, 4=1974, 5=1975 after that i have no litature for info.
The second digit is the car line:
1 = Chevrolet
2 = Pontiac
3 = Oldsmobile
4 = Buick
5 = Cadillac
6 = GMC
The third element is a letter which corresponds to the fisher body style the radio goes in:
A - Midsized: Tempest, Chevelle, Camaro, ChevyII, Acadian, Skylark/GS, [GTO not listed by Delco but is a Tempest or LeMans, GT37, T-37 Pontiac model radio]
B - Fullsized model: Bonneville etc.
C - More than full sized: Cadillac Fleetwood.
D - Rear control: Cadillac 75
E - Toronado, Riviera
F - Pony car: Firebird etc.
G - Grand Prix etc.
H - Subcompact: Sunbird etc.
L - Opel
T - Truck
TTC - GMC truck tilt cab
V - Corvette, sometimes the V looks like a Y ?
X - Compact: Nova etc.
Z - Corvair etc.
The next two letters indicate the type of radio:
PB - Push Button AM
FP - AM/FM mono
FM - AM/FM~Stereo
K - Fader Control
MP - FM Multiplex adapter (second part of a two-piece radio)
T - Stereo Tape Player (8-track)
RV - Reverberation Amplifier
FW - AM/FM/Weather band
MW - AM/FM~Stereo/Weather band
In 1970, integrated AM and AM/FM~Stereo/8 tracks became available which added a third letter - T or "AMT" or "FMT" In 1970 there where a lot of AM - 8 track combos sold, FM stations were still a rarity in parts of the country.
Finally there may be a digit (1, 2) on the end which indicates a running change or revision number.
About the ultimate was reached in the late 1970s with the model xxBFTC1 - An AM/FM~Stereo/8 track/CB unit in three pieces - the radio unit which went in the normal dash position, a CB unit which contained the transceiver electronics, and a control head/microphone. About as much as was ever put into a Delco radio.

One half of a comeback since 2005. The owner of a 63 Corvette WonderBar had to have unit back to make the big car show! Unit would stop on FM Converter but not up to factory specs. So i returned it to him while i searched for a parts donor unit.

Before i start on the long ''NO'' list. Please IF You are wanting to send me work do not any any way HESITATE to send me an eMail or call after 2PM central time. I do want and will take time to talk with You about Your project.

BUT do not have time to help You identify a unit to sell on eBay [all the info i have is on the model# code page]

Unit to stabilize so rely-ability and, performance can be VERIFIED. Not assumed! Along with real world thermal testing of freezing, baking, cycling on and, off.

Not doing so leaves the door wide open for those dreaded ''COME BACKS!''
That i hate more than You do!


2012 In an effort to speed up turn around time on the 58~85 era units I no longer service the pre 1958 models. In the past 10 years or so. I have restored about 75 of these vibrator units. They consume a great deal of time because of my lack of expertise and, learning curve on them. The amount of parts that must be replaced in a Basic Electronic Restoration. With some parts only to be found in donor units and, the unbelievable price they go for now days.
I did enjoy the challenge of orientating my self to that era of technology but found my self forgetting about the weeks I was spending on them, losing jobs on 58~85 era units that i know like I know how to eat breakfast!

No Radios or Parts for sale!

NO FM conversions

NO Antenna repairs

NO tech advise outside of my restoration projects.





PLEASE! Do not send me a radio! Until I give You shipping authorization.

(((My goal is to work on units as i am requested to. BUT it is more productive to work on them in batches of like radios. The more of one unit i work on the more repeatable the work is. Then i do not have to think about witch way to turn a part to get it to fall into place, it just happens!)))

My electronic service skills come from going on my first TV service call with my Dad at the age of eight. Then growing up in his "BUD'S TV" shop in Alamo, TN. population 1900.

Certified and, trained by RCA & Motorola on there audio products at 13, Delco in 1967 at the age of 14.

I did not get Zenith's certification back in the day because they all ready had a TV tech in the area BUT i did do his audio work!




It is one thing to attend a training class offered by a manufacture Or work for them installing parts. BUT another to be CERTIFIED & PAID by DELCO to do there warranty work. i was the man? at the end of the production line that made the radios WORK!




In 1967 just as i turned 14 I was certified by Delco! The 43rd man ever to get such an accredation! Told i was the only one Delco found in a nation wide search through all the schools looking for "young ones" to train as there upcoming radio techs!

Amazed! my self! I was told that the golden age of radio was the 1930s `and, all the young ones of the day knew about radios was to go down to Walgreen's purchase a unit small enough to hide then use an ear piece in English class. They simply found know one else of my era even working in radio repair shops so they could be trained. Then started paying a not so bright 14 year old $125.00 flat rate for 2.5 hours on each unit they sent me. The Delco man said: "I was on my way"!

The next man on the list was 55 41 years older than i.

A few years later Dr. M.R. Bose was certified so i get to call him Jr.

I was told by the time i was 50. GM expected a 1958 Corvette to be worth $20,000.00 and they wanted to make sure there would be factory trained techs to take care of there radios!

Certified by N.A.P. on there digital audio products.

Working with the top of the line state of the art recording studio builders.

Live touring sound companies supplying equipment to the top music stars in the world.

50 years of on the job training in electronic sound system service! AND, I still learn on every unit i work on!
