'68 Multi Plex Unit
« on: July 11, 2017, 01:28:45 PM »
I'm unable to upload pictures at this time, I have a multi Plex that is mounted in the console lid, I've only seen one other '68 with this option, would it have been factory or dealer installed?

Could be either, but because U79 was fairly involved, it was usually installed at the factory.

Here is the pic. I think an underside pic may help even more.

It's correct, but it has the wrong knobs. The original 3883772 knobs (pictured below) were also used on the 1966 Caprice (and ONLY the Caprice) AM/FM Stereo (Model number 7296341) and are IMPOSSIBLE to find! Hence why people install the Camaro knobs.

On the 1966 Full Size Car, you could have had console stereo Multiplex with either a Caprice or Impala SS. The determining factor was the gauge package. In the Caprice, if you ordered RPO A51 it included bucket seats and gauges along with lower dash pads. In the SS bucket seats were standard so you ordered the D59 gauge package which again included the lower padded dash. The gauges mounted in the same place the standard multiplex would have installed, hence the console mount fo these models with the gauge package.
I am in the process of having the Multiplex Decal reproduced, should be done in a few weeks.
