68 or 69 AM/FM reverb?


I was at a guys place today and he has this. Can anyone tell me for sure what it is? I'm thinking 68 or 69 Beaumont / Lemans AM/FM reverb? The tags have fallen off, no numbers to be found.

Knobs could be 64? No nameplate on radio like Pontiac? Not familiar with anything newer than 64, which could have had reverb.

69 Reverb was a rocker switch. If you get me a photo of the back side of the radio I might be able to identify it.

With those 2 clues I'm betting it's a 68 then. Thanks.

 Oh, interesting. Thanks for that.  This pretty much narrows it down to a 68 full size then unless Tempest/Lemans/GTO had chrome. I'll look at some pictures online.

I was reading gtoforum.com tonight. Apparently the AM radios have black push buttons, the AM/FM radios have chrome push buttons. So I'm back to thinking this might be a Tempest/Beaumont AM/FM after all? Still more digging to do, we'll see I guess...

By looking in my 1968 Delco Radio Service Manual, 1968 Full Size Pontiac AM/FM Radio had the heat sink on the drivers side of the radio as in your photos. The heat sink for the A-body car cannot be seen on the drivers side, so I presume it's on the rear of the radio.
So, from this, the radio you show for a full size car.

 Yes, the A body had it on the rear to clear the heater control. I was reading that on a GTO page just a few minutes ago. A guy said he moved his from the side to the back, it was a simple bolt on and that made it into an A body radio.

69 AM/FM selector is on one of the station select pushbuttons.
68 AM/FM selector is on the RH rear knob
