Does anyone know where i can find a vintage Dodge Truck CB Radio? They were offered as a truck option in the 70's and up until the early 80's. I am looking specifically for one with a chrome face plate and all wiring.

Thanks

I will have to look in my stash. I know I had one of those and also the original digital radio out of the 78 Cordoba's

I just picked one up off ebay, waiting for shipping. I looked for one because they were an oddity. I kinda like oddities!

You mean like this? This was my dads truck back in 1984. I borrowed it for a day and took it to my shop and threw everything that fit onto it for his birthday.

I got one of those factory AM/FM/CB radios around here somewhere I pulled out of some old Chrysler we junked, 5th Ave or something, or maybe a van.

Draw backs of the Mopar CB Radio Unit

The Mopar CB antenna system is a split type. The metal antenna is 40 inches high. Stock am/fm is 31. The coax splits at the radio. There is a Mopar CB coax nut fitting on the back of the Mopar CB thats part of the radio that will not hook up to standard over the counter cb's coax/antenna systems. The main thing to find is the Mopar Antenna System to Make the Mopar CB work correctly (but never was very good ). The Mopar Antenna System was very hard to calibrate for good output.
You can find an adapter coax fitting nut at some CB Repair shops to fit the Mopar CB,for aftermarket coax/antenna systems. The aftermarket nut tends to loosen up and blow the channel your talking on the Mopar CB. I would suggest a hand held "all in one type" CB. You can hide the main componit under the dash and have a proper antenna system mounted somewhere else on the truck that doesn't involve the AM/FM Radio.
