Hans L, so is your radio dated February 3RD 1968?? ... Danny
I have no idea where there is a date code on the radio. Curious where it is.
Per the Chevelle Radio Tech site, http://www.chevelles.com/radiotech/69_72tags.html
it decodes as a '69 AM FM and is correct for a Camaro, if I interpet their decoding correctly. I have not been able to find a site or place that tells where the date code is. Clearly the ID tag on the restored version is a reproduction tag.
From the Chevelle Site:
"Example: the correct model number for a 1969 Chevelle AM/FM pushbutton radio is: 91BFP1.
Using the decoding information from above, you might be confused by the "B" in the model number since "B" indicates "B-body" or in other words, a full-sized Chevy. So why is it correct for a Chevelle or mid-size "A-body" ?
The answer is some of the same audio equipment was shared among different Chevrolet vehicle lines. A full-size (or B-body) Chevy such as a 1969 Impala shared the same AM/FM mono radio with such vehicles as the Camaro and the Chevelle. To keep things simple and costs down, B-body radios such as the AM/FMs were often installed in other vehicles. "B" can also be thought of as the "default" radio to be installed when a vehicle line did not have its very own line of radios. In fact, many Chevrolet vehicles "borrowed" B-body audio equipment at different times in production."
Hans L. What did this guy charge you for the radio resto job??? Don
