This magnificent vintage Blaupunkt Frankfurt car radio will be a stylish luxury addition to your European classic (sports) car. In period only very expensive cars were equipped with radio. Blaupunkt radios were true status symbols in the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1970s car radios became a more common, but still expensive, option. To get an idea: For about 10 Blaupunkt Frankfurt radios one could buy a brand new VW Beetle in 1970! This fantastic Blaupunkt Frankfurt unit wil fit any classic car which is prepared by the factory to receive a radio. The ARI traffic information system which was introduced in 1975 was discontinued in 2005. The radio has this, now redundant, feature and this does not have any effect on the other functions of the radio. This sterling Blaupunkt Frankfurt transistor radio is refurbished by Dutch and German specialists for Classentials. This radio will upgrade your classic automobile and it will enhance your driving experience because the dashboard is what YOU are looking at while enjoying your classic (sports) car! The radio is easy to install with the guidance and the parts supplied in the Classentials Installation Kit. Enjoy the sound of the 1970s via your dashboard speaker or add an extra speaker in the rear to surround yourself with music. This radio features a DIN connection for external (MP3) devices with a 3.5 mm jack socket. You can order this optional connection cable with dasboard mount and switch at Classentials, see accessories.

In case your dashboard aperture / mount has been changed by previous owners over the last 40 -50 years you might need, or have to make, different parts to make the radio fit properly.

Warranty: This refurbished 40 – 50 years old radio comes with a 1 year warranty in Western Europe. In the rare case that a reliable Blaupunkt transistor radio stops working you send it back to us for immediate exchange (in case a comparable unit is in stock) or repair. The radio is sealed before shipping with a unique numbered security seal which cannot be tampered with. If this seal is damaged / broken the warranty will be void. The scale lamp is excluded from the warranty. If the lamp stops working we will send you a new lamp. This part can quite easily be exchanged by yourself or your local mechanic / electrician with the radio still fitted in the car. Most scale-lamps last for decades so do not worry about this!

“Enjoy the Ride!”
