Yes I have seen this and offed him a price , Iam sure there was a Capri business called ASJ back in the days and for £125 and no knobs and looks like the it's already been open up as the red wire screw is missing . Iam thinking it's had it .
A friend has said that I could get a DAB / Bluetooth hook up to fit inside and would still keep the original look and radio also it would let me hook a 4 speaker Amp hidden .

But there's a big But as yes there would be a iPod connection that I guess would come out in the glovebox but the display would be changed with two microphones in side somehow and at present it's not been done . As there is a system out there for classic cars but the microphones are out side in the door pillers , also I think it's mad money .

So I don't really want my radio used as a testing ground .

Thanks anyway Andrew for looking out for me I remember back in the days of everybody just throwing these in the garage for a CD player in the days . Also I had audioline speakers in the back that were bolted down in the original parcel shelf . What was I thinking .

I'm sure its the same guy.

These radio prices have got pretty high these days but that sounds a bit keen for a spares or repair unit.

Funny as they say you learn something everyday but grundic who made the radio for ford also made the same headunit for VW , Mercedes, Porsche here in Europe and the USA market also they updated the radio in 1991 with a upgrade but keeping the same look . It's called" Gründig WKC2837 VD Radio-cassette "
The guy who is going to fit this great new tec for me is a bit OCD when it comes to car radios and is getting me a more updated model .
Also he said that they go for $30 bucks in USA .
Got all this information in a email this morning so I guess some of you might already know this but I have not got a clue .

Interesting info. Do you happen to know if the upgraded/new ones will fit in the original sized Capri aperture?

Hi,
I hope you are able find a stereo.
I had the intention of doing the same as you are, as in getting modern internals fitted into the old unit. However, I hit a stumbling block as I never did find a non-working unit at a reasonable price.
I've seen them go for £60 before, but I'm surprised the Ebay one sold for as much as £125.

It cost me £11.00 to post the same cassette player this weekend to a freind to fix just so that it would definitely get there in safe hands.

£125 (Not that I would have asked half of that) for a broken unit, I would have posted it free....
£125 for a good working radio I wouldn't have such a problem with extra postage.

I see what you are getting at now lol. Luckily we didnt pay that much for a broken unit. People trying to jump on the bandwagon these days.

Iam like you all I guess as I don't want to butcher my working radio as they hard to get but this wiz kid has got one coming to me so I will keep you all posted .

That beaten up thing on eBay had no knobs and you could see somebody had it open .
The main thing is the faceplate as well .

Sorry, reading through the replies I'm discombobulated now :) Have you found a replacement to the usual Capri stereo, which is easier and cheaper to source, which also happens to fit in the original aperture. Or are you having a Capri stereo converted with updated internals.

Sorry Iam having a sourced updated 1992 I think sent to me what is the same grundig audio unit fitted in our capris .
And if Iam happy with that one I will send my original ford logo one to have converted with the other one as back up or send back the updated one to have converted .

It's just in case the bloke finds he can not fit all the stuff to the radio and then i would have know radio ,so Iam getting a back up just in case .

So far it's only cost me €30 bucks or £26 to find another unit and that's posted to the UK

So the friend of a friend who is a audio guru will fit all the Morden stuff to the headunit with Bluetooth , iPod connection & DAB radio what will be for me around £80 if that's goes wrong I don't need to pay .
But I know that you can just have a audio line for a ipod fitted and the prices are around £120-150 I think .

If all works out I have said to the guy that is it ok to give his address .

I must say I don't have a clue about car audio so Sorry if it sounds wrong and also I was worried that if I gave somebody a headunit that the radio works fine on and have just a hole left and all goes wrong or if it's lost in the post , I have my back up headunit

Will keep you all updated as we are all trying to keep or cars 100% and it's cost so much And with broken units being sold for £125 it's a mad world

Also any spelling mistakes it's my iPhone I should have got the bigger screen with my eyes . :cool:
