Hi Guys, would anyone have an original radio that was fitted to the series V they wish to sell, or where I may be able to get hold of one.

Thanks Commerlad,

I have managed to get one off ebay with out the rootes logo unfortunaely, little to much to ask for that really but it is a Radiomobile 1070.
Thanks for your help guys.

That is what is fitted in my 66 Hunter. (Also had Oil Pressure and Ammeter extras as well)

Sometimes I think laterally, but then I have to get up!

Thanks AAA, just what I needed, now I know what I am looking for.

My knowledge is mainly fastback, but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong for the series cars!

The original optional radios from Rootes dealers were Radiomobiles according to the accessory brochures. New for 1967, these were badged with a pentastar and said Rootes rather than just Radiomobile. From 1971 the fascia design changed completely and was badged Chrysler, but it was still a Radiomobile unit behind it all. A couple of versions were consistently offered, one with push button station selection, and a cheaper version without.

I would suggest something like a Radiomobile 1070 or 80x would be perfect! They turn up on eBay frequently at a variety of prices and conditions, some modified with mp3 leads! The photo is from the late 1966/early 1967 accessory brochure for the new minx/hunter/imp cars, and shows a Radiomobile 1070. Hope this helps!
