1965 Falcon AM radio and FM converter

I've finally decided to upgrade my original 1965 Ranchero radio, so if you're looking for an OEM FoMoCo AM radio in great condition, this is it. It works perfectly; all pushbuttons work as they should, and the needle moves smoothly across the band. I cleaned and lubed it internally, and installed a new lamp. It came from my 66B Deluxe, so it has the Deluxe knobs and works with the Deluxe dash bezels.

For the real nostalgia fan, I also have a NOS Sparkomatic FM converter that plays FM through the AM radio. I bought this new in the box on eBay a few years ago. It also works perfectly and includes the mounting brackets. If you want the old school look with AM/FM in your Falcon or Ranchero, this is the set up that was used back in the day.

Radio: $100
FM converter: $30
Both: $120
Can ship, and I have a PayPal account. I'm located near Portland OR. PM me if you're interested.

radio

Hi I have a 1964 futura with a dead radio. I am very interested in your radio. My dash panel has the little trim piece that runs between the buttons and face. Is that what you meant by deluxe ?
If so I would like to buy it from you.

Nice talking to you Ric, and thanks; I'll box it up today. Here's a photo of it in my '65 Deluxe dash for reference:

Radio is SOLD. I still have the FM converter.

I also have a direct-fit dash speaker with the correct Ford wiring plug. This has the waterproof plastic cone, not paper. Worked great with my old AM radio.
$20 + shipping.
