Dear Listers:
I have a question: Are the factory radios in the Milanos identical throughout the production run (1987-1989)? I know they are Clarion products, but does anyone know the model number?
Thanks much
Cheers
Andy
P.S. want to locate and install original radio, a purist here!

There were some cosmetic differences - the early radios had silver button (1987) and the later ones had black buttons.

They all should activate the antenna.

I think that I know of a radio that may be up for sale, as the person put an aftermarket unit into his 89 milano. I know that I have one just sitting, but I'm not ready to part with it yet.

Hi there. I'm 9 years late to this thread (!) so no idea who is still around, but I also have a Milano Verde with aftermarket radio that I want to take back to stock.

Any of you still have your OEM radios that you'd be willing to part with?

I have two original spares that I would be willing to part with. I will pop them into my car over the weekend, make sure they still work and get back to you.

*FYI* I think I recall that these stock Clarion heads also require a code to re-enable after battery power has been removed. So make sure you get the code (4-digit I think). I wrote mine on the radio chassis with sharpie - Since I owned mine in the mid-late 90's, I was not too worried about theft of a cassette player (Since CD player were already the standard)!! Lol -'sides it was hard to spot way down there in front of the shift boot. ;p

I've got the Alfa accessories brochure that come with my 75 TS. Just for some random info, there was about 6 different head unit options in Australia.

all i know is my radio has a handle on it, are you suppost to take it with you or something? :p
Haha yeah mine has the same, although the only reason why it is useful is so I can pull it out and stop it from playing. For some reason, it is always powered on!!

There is an on/off button. However, my wife usually just does the same, pulling it out part way to shut it off, and to keep it's memory from draining the battery even when turned off when the car is not used for a few days in a row or longer (small battery, and the car doesn't get driven very far when used).
