Very cool! Do you know what year of Frankfurt that is? If I had to guess I'd say '69 or so. Somewhere down the road I'll send you a pic of my Stuttgart - but installing the stereo is somewhere around task number 31,024,586 right now.

So did you use the factory speaker mount point? What size of speaker?

Hi Jason. Oddly, there was no sticker on the side of the unit. I'd guess +/- '69, too!

Yeah, I used the factory speaker mount in the dash. I didn't use the correct speaker size; I used a little-bit-smaller 25+ year old Kenwood speaker, just 'cuz that was what I had on hand. I may pop for the proper sized speaker...maybe not. Radio is operational just because I was installing the darn thing, and making it actually work was very little extra effort.

Also, I was bored with the factory blanking plate, and I like a period accessory or two... and IMO nothing beats a period stereo, expecially a Euro AM/FM/SW/LW !

Would love to see a pic of your Stuttgart when you have the time.

ON/OFF on adapter chord

Your diagram is very helpful, but I don't understand the ON/OFF wiring on the Mono diagram. Is the ON/OFF a switch that needs to be wired in. What does ON/OFF do? I noticed that the radio tuner doesn't work when the chord is connected to the radio. Is there a way of connecting and disconneting the chord with a wired in switch, so the radio tuner will function without pulling out the chord connector and plugging in the plastic jumper on the back of the radio?
Thanks, Terry

Do you know if the faceplates can be purchased separately? I also have a Frankfurt that I'd like to put in my Super but I don't like it's faceplace.

I've purchased a faceplate set from here:
Classic Autoradio Station - radio-faceplates

I would up polishing up my faceplate, and just using their chrome surround.

The on/off line on the din plug I believe is for switching the remotely fitted tape deck on and off with the radio - not for switching the radio on and off.
For switching between line in and radio without unplugging/plugging in the cable, this shoudl work for you:
Classic Autoradio Station - cable for CD/MP3/Ipod with switch

1966 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce - pretty much finished!
Bunch of bikes too.

Hi:

I recently purchased a vintage Frankfort for my GTV-2000 and will be attempting to install myself. Question: What should I use for my radio's power source - a switched or constant power source? And what is the best way to find the right hot power source wire to use and the ground wire?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
