Is it an AM radio - 91APB1 ? 

Do you have any soldering experience and want to see if you can fix it yourself?

Mine hadn't worked for 37 years.  I replaced the dried out electrolytic capacitors and it fired right up.  Sam's photofacts has the schematic.

If not, there is a restoration recommendation thread here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9018.0

Thanks so much DavidS, my radio came out of my 1969 Camaro, by chance do you know what the part number is for a 1969 Delco Radio ? Before I send my radio to get repaired I want to make sure it's the right one for my car. Thanks

Is it an AM radio - 91APB1 ? 

Standardized Delco radio code as of late 1968:
91APB1 is a 1969 Delco push button AM radio.
9=1969
1= Chevrolet
A= Midsize, includes Camaro
PB= Push Button AM
1= revision #

Other radio codes:
FP - AM/FM Mono
FM - AM/FM Stereo

Hope this helps....  ;D

Wiseman,
 Check Craigslist Los Angeles, auto parts, search delco radio for his ad and information. "Joe" @ 626 264-7233. I have not used him.  Good luck.
