    An AM only radio with a 1992 part number. Surely for truck/van only use. I think I would have went for the radio delete credit or put up the extra to get FM.

    How about a four button no cassette radio for very reasonable money?

    Interesting.
    I've been junkyarding a LONG time and I've never seen one that plain. I'd have remembered that.

    I have a plain AM/FM from an 84 or 85 CV. May have been from a police car? WagonMan

    I found that exact one last summer in the yard. It was in a low optioned 85 CV. Wish I had scavenged more parts from that car.

    And for a whopping $5, I'll have it in a few days. If it's a bum radio, well, it was only $5.

    Kinda tired of the aftermarket radio I have. Works good, but kinda clashes with everything else, so I'll do what I did with the '97 and swap back to a Ford radio. Might see about watching Gadget's video on how he adapted an auxiliary jack into an 80s unit and apply it to this one. I'll just need to look at a wiring diagram for that radio since the factory connectors in the '87 are long gone. Based on a little research, an '84 Lincoln brochure pointed towards that being the intro level radio in Mark VII. Wonder how many owners actually opted for that basic thing considering the car it was going in. I'm sure many opted for at least the cassette option.

    Glad you can use it. Or try to. Hopefully the seller comes through on shipping it out. I have had a few cancel the order once they find out “free” shipping is free for the buyer but costs the seller!

    I am glad you bought it. I figured someone here got it. If the seller flakes out, let me know. I am pretty sure I have a very plain one. Not much can go wrong with those

    Hope that works out. For some reason I though the aux input modification hijacked the cassette paths. Hopefully that’s not the case.

    I still think a USB port hidden behind the cassette door would be tits. Stock looking, and plug in your thumbdrive.

    Okay, not Panther related. But I always thought the supercharged AWD 5.0 Saleen Explorers were quite the package. Wish the wife would let me trade her Escape for this. It’s close to me. She could care less about power.

    Gadget has mentioned the existence of the strange electronic tuning, no-cassette radio in the past. It's an oddball piece for sure. It seems plausible to me that the audio "input" from the cassette might be available somewhere inside it, so an aux-in could maybe be added similar to its more high-featured siblings.

    Well that radio arrived today, probably will poke at it this weekend and see if its setup similar to other electronic radios of the period. Based on Gadget's video, the audio output where it's generated can be tapped into regardless if was a cassette deck or not, since he could break the output from it even while on the regular radio tuner.

    Appears these folks have a single refinished lacy spoke turbine at a very reasonable price IMO. My wheel of choice for the box Lincoln.

    Someone here was looking for a header panel for a 80s CV or MGM. NPD has one very reasonable.
    That is a great price on the lacy lincoln wheel.
    The body parts are aftermarket, not Ford parts. For some people, it matters.
