Beautiful car. You are privileged to have a one owner (now two) '69 with a known provenance. When reading the threads on the tech forum, I'm always struck by how many '69 cars there are. Seems like every other poster has a '69. There weren't an inordinate number made and I'm sure there have been lots that have gone by the wayside in one way or another - or maybe '69 owners post more than owners of other years.

Spent a few hours in the trunk. It's a start, but far from where I like it.

What are those two bolt holes on the driver's side just behind the washer reservoir?

Thanks Marv. I drove it in Denver rush hour today. It's an easy driver but I have to say, I forgot how it is to be eye level below big trucks' bumpers.

Interesting observation. Maybe an admin has stats of numbers of members by year model?

Mine certainly does not. The rears open but not the front.

I do!! Also I live in Lakewood. Wanna get the cars together for a beer. The pic is a bit hard to read. Can certainly do more with the original. PM me.

When I get it back from Storz, I'll bring the book.

I have no idea how they got the radio in there and I figure neither did they, looking at the angle of it.



I got it out, with extreme prejudice.



There is no way I'm putting this monster in there, plus, no speaker pigtail. The search is on, find the pigtail, find a pro installer.

Hi Ken,

Was great chatting with you. Here is the link to my thread. There is a lot of technical info about how to fix an old Porsche. Hope it is helpful :-) Also, I knew next to nothing about cars when I started this thread so you can certainly do everything yourself.

Saving the "Rat" - Restoring a 69T

Cheers,
Kristoph

What a fantastic story! I lived in Spruce Park neighborhood for 30 years. That's where I rescued Joe Ranchero out of the middle of Chavez Salvage on South Atrisco. It had a tree growing through the engine bay and hood. I had VW's, a string of them, I lived at Foreign Aid. ABQ Speedo rebuilt every one.

First pic. My neighbor offered $100 more than I paid to have it hauled back to the junk yard.

I spent some time trying to find the speaker connector. Pretty sure I ended up on eBay.

1 Speaker Plug Wire Becker Blaupunkt 1970/80s Radio Mercedes BMW Porsche Ferrari | eBay

There are a couple of vendors in Europe but I found nothing in US.

The install is a piece of cake. DIY

Thanks Matthew, I saw that pigtail. I don't think it would fit and it's not stereo.

I'll take it by Car Toys and see if they have an idea.

That is the DIN connector in your photo.

If you take a photo of the entire back I may be able to help. Look at the far end on the back side, most of the units I've seen have speaker connections at that location.

What does DIN stand for?

Here's the back and both sides. Thanks for taking a look.

Hello Nirvana! I got it back from Storz today. It was a mess, running on four cylinders. It's hitting all six now, brothers and sisters!

New plugs, cables, points, rotor & cap, change all fluids, flush brakes, adjust valves, alternator belt... systems checked, brakes, clutch, tranny, lights, electrical, all systems go.

Next up, I do the motor mounts and raise the seat.

Inside the red circle is the speaker connection. You can see the indent of a speaker symbol to the right of the two holes.




Most likely the connector you need:

New Blaupunkt 1960's Speaker Plug Cable Frankfurt Radio Porsche Mercedes BMW | eBay

Wow! Thanks for your help. I bought it.

What's the DIN connector used for?

I understand you can use it like a USB or similar connector for phone/mp3/iPod. I have never done it so not sure how it works. Those are pretty easy to find as well but you need to count the number of pins required.

I'm assuming you know your radio is mono? Mine is a stereo edition that had the other speaker connectors. I have speakers in doors and the center one as well. Spliced them to work as L and R channels (my center speaker is actually 2 speakers so I have a total of 4).

The work order you posted looks like its for routine services, I see valve adjustment and motor/engine compartment cleaning and coupler adjustment. I don't see anything about a window.

You got me thinking. I never really analyzed it closely. I put all the Stuttgart paperwork in order and turns out the German version is a copy of the English version. There is no mention of the windows.

Oh well. There is no doubt the windows are there, we have only Gene's word on this one, but I imagine a decorated WWII retired Rear Admiral Naval Academy graduate's word is about as good as it gets.
