Tools needed: wrench number 14 and 8, cable shoe pliers. Handy customers experienced with working and tinkering on classic cars can install a radio by themselves. All others we strictly advise to have their vintage radio installed by an experienced mechanic / electrician / local garage. Our installation kits contain the parts and instructions needed to install a radio in a factory original prepared car. 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.
NOTE: This radio comes with a 1-DIN dashboard mount behind the face-plate for European cars from ca. 1975.
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!
