Mechanical tuning with pointer. Mono prefered but stereo OK. Blaupunkt Frankfurt with same description. Prefer U.S. versions with multi bands.

I have a Blaupunkt Frankfurt that was fitted in the '65 Jaguar XKE I bought from Los Angeles.

I did a little research at the time and it seemed that the radio was probably from that time. It has a separate power supply box ...at least that's what I think it is!

It's probably a bit early for you if you want something made in the 1970s, but I would be interested to know what it is if you know about these things. I've seen a lot of Frankfurts on ebay, especially in the USA, and they seemed to have been fitted to Mercs and BMWs quite often in period.But they don't seem to have the additional power supply pack...maybe an earlier model feature?

Bob and Mark,

If you speak or email the guy at Chrome London (I think his name is Mike) it’s a number starting 0203 from memory but google is your friend. His knowledge of old car radios is phenomenal he should be able to supply what you want but likely will be expensive and also answer your queries Mark. He’s a helpful nice chap.

I’m assuming you aren’t wanting one of these radios for an Elan as it won’t fit?

If you want serviced converted to iPhone Philips Turnolock radios I can help.

Good luck.

Several years ago I had these guys repair a Europa II for me and add bluetooth connectivity. They might have radios for sale.


Also I see there is at least one on eBay now from the Atlanta area - take a look
