Checked and left on test for hours-worked perfectly on both bands. For use in 12 volt Negative earth cars. Fitted with fly lead to activate an electric aerial.
It is complete and ready to install and enjoy in your classic car. This lovely old radio has been fitted with a lead allowing you to play your digital files from your iPod or mp3 player directly through the radio - the connecting lead is almost 2 metres long - and it is fitted with a standard 3.5mm jack plug which is compatible with all ipod/mp3 players.These Philips sets were fitted with their own patented'Turnolock' device, which allows the driver to select six previously tuned stations without taking their eyes off the road - very novel as well as an excellent safety feature. It was extremely popular and fitted to a number of top end marques at the time. As these units are so compact, it was fitted by Lotus in a number of their models as space behind the fascia is very limited on their cars, such as Elan, Elise, Europa Éclat etc etc. The radio is in lovely clean condition. All the controls are in fine working order too, even the original rubber trim on the knobs is still intact which is pretty rare.
It sounds just as good as it looks too - I have had this on test over many hours using a 4 ohm speaker and it gave an excellent performance. All the controls have been lubricated and operate perfectly without any crackles or notchiness.These twin output transistor models are really powerful and it will easily drive a pair of speakers if you so wish. (Remember these are mono radio's, NOT stereo) You will certainly not be disappointed with its performance, it is a very sensitive and powerful radio which tuned in plenty of local and national FM stations. This radio really does sound exceptionally well, with lots of volume! These radio's were fitted as an after market accessory to many top end British classic cars of the 60's and 70's, however it is compatible with just about every 12v Negative earth classic car you can think of.
Take a look at the large sized photo's and judge the condition for yourself - it would look fabulous back in a fascia of a period classic car. Perhaps now is the time to remove that out of place modern cd player and give your beloved classic car a real period treat?
