Default Radio and 8 track player repair and restoration

Hey Poncho enthusiasts, I am repairing and restoring 64-77 Buick Olds Pontiac Delco radios and 8 track players full time now. I just retired after 39 years as an electrical engineer in the semiconductor industry. I know these analog radios very well. I offer 7-10 day turnaround on most repairs with a 10 year warranty on all work performed. I have my own lab here at my house in Scottsdale and over 150 delco AM and AMFM radios if anyone needs a restored radio. I can also add bluetooth to any radio that works well and keeps the original fit and function and electronics of the stock radio. Send me a message and I'll get you in the que for a fast repair. Thanks, Jim

I saw this post and wanted to give a plug for Jim and his work on these original radios as he has helped me several times on the radios and 8-tracks for my current cars. He does extremely nice work and is very good with communicating from the time you ship the parts to him till they are complete. He helped me find a correct '74 AM-FM Red dot radio for my current '74 T/A, rebuilt/restored it and also rebuilt the cars original 8-track and restored a butchered wire harness for there radio/8-track connection to like new condition. Here are a couple of pics for reference on those most recent parts he restored.
