Power to the Radio

Now I am waiting to get the proper plug to hook the speaker into the back of the radio.  Of course Blaupunkt wouldn't have dreamed of making a rig that was compatible with anything Radio Shack has on hand - not that Radio Shack existed in 1967 when the Frankfurt US was assembled.

I could also locate two bullet connectors at an auto store and make my own jack.

In my research I discovered that a huge variety of these radios were produced; there exist a LOT of sub-models that add fun and confusion to the learning curve.

1) The voltage selector blade with "12v" written clearly -that's a relief - you can configure this unit to 6v if that's what your car uses for power

2) The radio looks better from the front
