"Collector" might be a more appropriate term.  But I hear you!  :D

Bit tricky navigating my way through the RPO list and AIM on this topic, but it seems the standard setup for am or am/fm [mono] in 67's was a single speaker at the front as per U63 in the AIM.
An aux rear speaker RPO U80 could be ordered, which was fitted to the RH rear speaker cut-out.
The stereo 4 speaker system was only available with the stereo tape player.

How the speakers were switched between the tape player and the radio and wether all 4 speakers were driven by the radio, I'm not sure.
Maybe the radio defaulted back to the single front speaker and only the tape system drove the 2 kick panel and 2 rear speakers.

What happened in 68 when am/fm 4 speaker stereo became available, is another minefield I'm yet to navigate!  :)

btw, rear antenna was only available for am radio only, not am/fm [too much signal loss over a long antenna lead]

To me the bowties are the distracting focal point..

Especially when the bowtie is reversed, like that one!

The new grad marketing types hired by Chevy over the past 20 yrs know almost nothing about Chevrolet, Corvette, Camaro, or high performance history of the brand!

One thing not mentioned by Wayne in his article, or his book (the last time I checked) was some other differences between the SD rear brake axle (OTC) and the factory JL8 package.  Wayne's article mentions the axle diameter and bearing size, but doesn't reference the difference in the POSI carrier used in the two.   The JL8 rear used the same posi carrier in terms of number of plates and spring pressures as other 12 bolt POSI units in non-disk rears.    The SD unit OTOH used 22 plates with spring pressures of 200 ft-lbs (vs the 50 ft-lbs for the fctory Posi).   I had a phone conversation and some emails with Wayne a few years ago regarding those differences, but he told me he had little experience/knowledge of the SD package.  I did send him some photos and measurements from the one I have at that time.

Guys...from HS thru college age (I can't include myself in that category anymore!),  mostly all they think about are cars and girls!   

I am sorry Gary, like Bryon, I must take issue with some of your statements. I STILL mostly think about cars and girls! Keeps me feeling young I guess. Maybe we are college age...I mean we are still learning, right?

:)  .. Bentley! .. at our age.. we are not supposed to admit that!   especially publicly...  or we'll be called that worst thing of all... 'a dirty old man'.. :)
Originality / A question about the AM FM radio
« Last post by Leon in Mn. on May 24, 2015, 02:07:24 PM »
Hey guys I have a question about my old AM FM Delco radio in my 67.  Right now there are two rear speakers mounted in there (someone mounted Kraco's back in the day) and one speaker in the front.  The front speaker must not be hooked up because its not working.  I'm assuming that this was a mono set up at one time?  There are no kick panel speakers.  The front speaker is there, but from what I can see it is not hooked up.  I cannot seem to find anywhere that there was supposed to be just one speaker in the rear or should there be two?  There are two cutouts for the speakers (trunk view)which appear original.  Since this would not be stereo sound, would they have still hooked up the one speaker in front along with the two rear?  Thank you for your help.
