Did Dodge offer an AM/FM option on the 67 Coronet. If so does anyone have information (part number) or a picture of what the radio looks like ? Thanks

Not to derail from the original discussion but has anyone else put a CD player in the glovebox? I installed the factory AM radio back in with the dash speaker and plan to install a cd player int he glovebox and put some 6x9's int he back dash for that receiver. Anyone done this and have pictures of what it looks like?

My Ross Roy Data book does not show an AM-FM available in 67 for Coronet or Charger, pricing does not show one
either. They were available in B bodies in 64-65

Dodge did offer them as a dealer installed option for 66 and 67 Coronets. I've alwasy felt they were not offered as factory installed. However Darrell (696pack) says they were offered from the factory and he has first hand experience on this.

According to my 1966 factory parts book, there were no factory installed AM/FM radios offered by Chrysler either as standard equipment, or as an option for the 1966 Coronet and Charger models built for U.S. buyers. I don't have a 1966 Canadian parts book, so I can't speak for cars built for export to Canada. Plymouth however did offer U.S. buyers an AM/FM option for their 1966 Belvedere and Satellite models as shown below.

As far as dealer installed AM/FM radios go for the 1966 Dodge B-Body cars, I can't speak on that either, because I don't have any dealer source material to prove, or disprove that this was done, but as already mentioned above, there are no part numbers for an AM/FM radio in the 1966 factory parts book, so I'm not sure what radios the dealers would have used. Maybe they were able to use a 1966 Dodge C-Body radio?

Here's all of the standard and optional radios for the 1966 Dodge and Plymouth B-Body cars.

1966 factory parts book section number: 1-87-1

As far as finding one of the factory 1967 Dodge B-Body AM/FM radios goes, that won't be easy, as I've rarely seen them up for sale anywhere and the few times that I have seen them, they have been rather expensive due to their rarity. Unless you're building a serious show car that was factory equipped with one of these factory AM/FM radios, pass on them and go purchase a good aftermarket radio and hide it somewhere inside of the car, or better yet, buy yourself an iPod and take your music with you when you get out of the car. ;)

I have 3 of the standard AM radios for the 1966 Coronet. 2 of them are still in the factory boxes and one is not but is in perfect shape. The ironic thing is my car came radio delete and I have the delete plate on the dash still and no antenna hole in the right fender. The radios came with the car purchase as the old owner was going to install a radio. I know this won't help with the original post but I just wanted to say that, LOL.

I have seen a few AM/FM radios for the '66-67 Coronets. I believe that they were a dealer installed "accessory" One just sold on EBAY - I was watching it and I believe it sold for roughly $270. It looks very simillar to the AM job except it has a square shaped red button on the facia. I believe the button switches the radio between AM & FM. I had my AM radio converted to FM - the best feature about it is that you can plug your IPOD into it.

Hello Jeff,

Can you provide a link to that AM/FM radio on ebay? This would be about the only option for the 1966 Dodge B-Body models, as there was no AM/FM radios offered by Chrysler for the 1966 Coronets and Chargers from the factory for cars sold in the U.S..

Richard, I have a dealer installed option book with the radio and part numbers in it. It's really busy for me now, but I'll try to look it up and maybe even scan it for you at some point.

From what I've been told, now this is coming from a/c body experts, is that the fm was a dealer option as the c body fm unit will fit in the factory locale. There was also an option I've seen on my cousins 1965 Monaco that has an Fm modulator?(not sure if that is the term) fitted below the dash with a fairly great factory look.
For a clean look with mine, since it has some maintence records on a very original sheet in my glove box, and whomever restored my car retroed it as radio delete, is running an iPhone dock in the ashtray in my 66 440, running that to a 4 channel amp that will run some 3 ways in the dash and 6x9s in the factory rear deck holes. Sorry guys, no subs.

I don't think that will fit a 67 Coronet.

Thank you very much for the link. I also purchased a printed copy of this 1966 accessory catalog and I'm unable to find any listings for AM/FM radios for the 1966 Coronet and Charger models.

The part numbers shown below in this catalog are the same as I quoted earlier from my 1966 factory parts book, model 232, part #2661221 for the Coronets and model 233, part #2661223 for the Chargers, both are AM only radios, so this catalog wouldn't have given dealerships any options for installing an AM/FM radio into the 1966 Dodge B-Body cars that I can see. Maybe I miss something?

As far as the 1966 Plymouth Belvedere and Satellite models, this 1966 accessory catalog also shows the same part numbers for the AM and AM/FM radios that I quoted from my 1966 factory [arts book.

Since most all of the 1966 Plymouth, Chrysler and Dodge C-Body models could have been ordered with both AM and AM/FM radios, it would be very interesting to find out why the 1966 Coronet and Charger models did not have that option for both style radios. Very strange indeed.

I have a 1966 and would like to know if you would be willing to sell one of your AM radios. What is in mine now says "Plymouth All Transistor" and obviously would like the Dodge version. LMK, Don

Jeff,

Look what I just found that sold on ebay for $405.00 on March 3rd, 2013! Is this the same style radio that you had seen on ebay?
It's a closed auction, so I'm not sure if the ebay link still works, but here it is anyway.

AM/FM Dodge Radio



Model # 370



Very rare original factory AM/FM radio that fits 1966 - 67 Dodge Coronets & 67 Dodge Chargers.




Will fit in a 66 Dodge Charger but it doesn’t have the EL lighting.



Wire ends are cut, comes with correct knobs, shows its age but not bad for 47 years old.



Tested it and radio plays fine, the push buttons work, tuning knob works, AM/FM switch works, volume switch & base work, AM and FM channels both play clear, even the light bulb lights.



Part # 2661-220.

The seller listed this radio as being a model number 370 with part number 2661220, but in the 1966 factory parts book, there is no model number 370 in either an AM, or AM/FM model and part number 2661220 is is a valid part number, but it's listed for an AM/FM radio model number 369, which according to the parts book, was only used on the "V" (Plymouth Valiant) and "R" (Plymouth Belvedere and Satellite) models in 1966.

In 1967, as we've already noted, there was an AM/FM radio available from the factory for the "W" (Coronet) models and it was listed as model number 370 in the 1967 factory parts book, but that radio was listed as a "deluxe AM/FM" model and had a factory part number of 2661222, so that differs from this ebay radio also.

The radio that was sold in this ebay auction clearly shows that it has a DODGE faceplate on it, so either the factory parts book has an error in it's listing for this radio, or maybe this is that "dealer only" installed radio that we've been trying to verify?

Damn, you just HAVE to love Mother Mopar and all of her "never made parts"!

I agree, I think you need the notch on the back to clear the heater mechanism.

If anyone wants, I can get a picture of a dash out of the car.
