classic radio pushbutton look with fm?

In my 69 f100 ranger I have some pos radio from the 80's.

I would love to get an original radio with the push buttons but I have noticed that they are only AM. I really like the old-school push button look, but I would like to be able to hook in an ipod jack through a hardwired fm modulator but to do that I would need a FM radio.

Does anyone know if there are FM versions of the push button radios on this truck or if there are in later models? I checked LMC and they have modern radios which fit the hole but thats not really what I was looking for.

Ford offered an AM/FM (monaural) radio in 1971/72 F100/350's, but these are very hard to find. This radio will also fit 1968/69's.

1973 and later F100/350 AM/FM radio's will not fit into the dash properly...if at all. No other radio from any other Ford car/truck/Bronco/Econoline...whatever...will fit.

Hemmings Motor News (hemmings.com) in the Services Offered section has ppl advertising that they can take older radios, install FM, a cassette, or CD players in them.

The modified radio will have the same dimensions, so back into the dash it will go...without any modifications.

Ford also offered an 8 track stereo tape player for these trucks. The same one was also offered for passenger cars like Mustangs, Torino's and etc. It fit into a box that bolted to the bottom of the dash.

The speakers and speaker grilles with the tape player or AM/FM radio are identical to what was used in 1969/70 Mustang/Cougars.

LMC has upgrade radios in their catalog, but not cheap.

Thanks for the replys everyone.

Unfortunatly since all those options run from "expensive" up to "a significant portion of the price I paid for my truck in the first place" I guess I will live with my pos 80s radios.

I had a 1978 T-Bird with the radio in question.

Not sure if it will interchange but if you can find one cheap......
