Actually, that particular suppressor was used beginning with 1974 models, and was the result of more restrictive VDE [German equivalent of our US FCC] regulations regarding EMI/RFI emissions outside the vehicle, but most people assume it was for a quieter radio ... though that was strictly a side benefit.

Problem is ... that suppressor has proven a bit unreliable after 25+ years , and quite a few people have reported nasty/tricky alternator & regulator problems disappearing after removal of the suppressor!
